NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jan 6, 2015) - Great Eastern Energy (GEE), a leading alternative energy supplier of natural gas, electricity and renewable solutions in New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts, continues to increase their efforts to influence high-energy industries such as real estate and property management through numerous efficiency management programs and personalized services.

For the last eight years, GEE has been serving Co-Op City, a New York City housing cooperative located in the Bronx and managed by RiverBay Corporation. As a result, RiverBay has been enrolled in energy management programs that have transformed Co-Op City from an unseasoned and vulnerable business model into a well-managed and energy independent "city."

"Through our personalized energy services, we provide our clients with a better understanding of the marketplace. This allows them to make more timely and informed decisions, take control of their budget and better manage their energy costs with long-term positive impact," said Matthew Lanfear, CEO of GEE. "With energy being such a big part of RiverBay's budget, they needed to find a reliable solution to manage their costs and keep a balanced budget. That's where we came in."

"Fluctuation in the energy marketplace is hard to understand and manage. The team at GEE is very knowledgeable in this area due to a broad base of expertise," said Peter Merola, Director of Finance for RiverBay. "We spend about $20 to $25 million a year on energy, that's about 10% to 15% of our total budget. Today our costs are under control and our budget decreased by almost 10% compared to previous years, something that would never have been possible without GEE. Working with the right partner has made a significant difference for both myself and RiverBay."

To stay on top of cutting edge technologies and energy management programs in an effort to build a sustainable future, RiverBay is also exploring new projects with GEE such as lighting retrofit options, solar panels, demand-response and water treatment options within its power plant.
