Recovery Projects (ARRA)

Project Scope
This project involves the purchase and installation of energy efficient air compressor systems at several NJ TRANSIT maintenance facilities.

The air compressor systems that supply compressed air for maintenance equipment and tools at these NJ TRANSIT vehicle maintenance facilities will be upgraded to make them more energy efficient. Variable frequency drive motors will replace existing electric motors to reduce energy consumption.

The systems will improve the working environment, conserve energy, reduce operating/maintenance costs, and reduce Green House Gas (GHG) emissions.

Project Cost
$250,000 ($250,000 funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009).
