J.M. Electrical Completes Energy Efficiency Upgrade for Largest Affordable Housing Preservation Project in Commonwealth’s History

| August 6, 2015 |


Boston – J.M. Electrical Company, Inc. has completed project operations for the energy efficiency upgrade at Georgetowne Homes, a newly renovated affordable housing development located in Hyde Park.

Under the management of mechanical contractor EM Duggan, J.M. Electrical electricians contributed to the renovation project by updating the building’s heating system for 928 of the housing units, installing central boiler plants and a variable refrigerant monitoring system for the building’s community center.

“This important project will provide Boston residents with affordable housing options equipped with energy-efficient technology in what was the largest affordable housing development preservation project in the commonwealth’s history,” said Stephen Guarracino, operations officer at J.M. Electrical. “We were excited to integrate these innovative energy systems into the structure while also reducing the building’s energy costs.”

Georgetowne Homes presented unique requirements and specific challenges for contractors working to update the housing development. J.M. Electrical replaced the electric heating system with central boiler plants, rewired and installed new thermostats, and completely revamped the community center in order to reduce energy demand and consumption while guaranteeing reliable energy delivery for power and heat.

“Today’s advanced building systems are amazingly sophisticated, but it takes a wide range of skills and knowledge to ensure that all the systems work seamlessly and reliably,” said Stephen Guarracino, operations officer at J.M. Electrical. “As a result of this project, Georgetowne Homes will save money and energy, while also providing an exceptional living experience for all occupants.”
