New York City ranks third in the world for cities with the largest carbon footprint per capita, according to a 2018 report by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. The NYC Mayor's Office of Sustainability notes that, while the bulk of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in most U.S. cities is caused by transportation, 68% of New York's emissions come from buildings.
The passage of New York City Local Law 97 (LL97) is meant to help the city substantially reduce its CO2 emissions for buildings that are 25,000 square feet or larger by creating carbon caps. This poses a challenge to building owners, who face fines for noncompliance. The average owner is anticipated to owe $100,000 in fines annually. New York state is developing similar regulations as part of its Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA).

VanChargTM is a Vanadium Redox Flow Battery which charges from electrical sources like wind, solar, or the electrical grid, and discharges power as needed to support a building's energy load.
Owners of multi-family residential, commercial office, and small industrial buildings are best suited to use our rechargeable battery and energy distribution services, which stores energy during off-peak times and uses the stored power at peak times, to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and cut down on utility bills.
For each 10 kW VanChargTM battery employed, Ashlawn Energy, LLC can cut a building's annual emissions by 34 metric tons of CO2
Our battery solution can save building owners thousands of dollars
Buildings can save over 50% on their monthly electric bills with a VanChargTM system
Unlike lithium ion batteries, VanChargTM batteries will not catch fire or explode
Ashlawn Energy, LLC takes advantage of utility and government incentive payments, allowing us to install our battery at no charge to building owners
Our VanCharg™ battery system stores enough electricity to provide back-up power to hundreds of homes and support the transmission and distribution of electricity. VanCharg™ reduces electricity costs and cuts carbon emissions by allowing customers to "beat the peak" and store less expensive and less polluting power produced at night for use during peak hours.
