The Carnegie Hill Neighbors Annual Spring Benefit is CHN’s major fundraiser, and always a festive evening of camaraderie among neighbors, who gather in one of Carnegie Hill’s historic venues to celebrate our community. The CHN Enrichment Award is presented for an outstanding neighborhood enhancement, and other lucky guests win raffle and silent auction prizes.

2018 CHN Breakfast Series
Date To Be Determined
Because many young parents who are busy in the early evening cannot attend the Carnegie Hill Neighbors Annual Meeting, CHN offers an abbreviated morning event. Coffee and pastries replace wine and hors d’ oeuvres, and guests hear updates about CHN activities plus a presentation from a guest speaker.

Carnegie Hill Building Network Timely Topics:
CHN is constantly thinking of ways to streamline, save money and sustain your building operations. Here are a few topics we are mulling over.
Take our survey and see how your building stacks up against the rest!
Buildings that complete an oil-to-gas conversion significantly reduce operating costs and burn cleaner fuel – better for the budget and the environment. Building coalitions that approach Con Ed for mass conversion projects can expect fee waivers in getting gas service.
Co-Generation (CHP) systems provide thousands annually in electricity and fuel savings. CHP systems provide critical standby power during outages for elevators, common area lighting, and water pumps. Buildings with 75 – 149 units qualify at 40 kilowatts and larger than 150 units qualify for a 100 kilowatt system, with incentive rebates at $135, 000.
Community Solar Projects are credit savings programs (not an ESCO program) and are available to individual buildings with no upfront cost, annual fees or termination penalties. EL1 or EL2 rate classed buildings stand to save 7-10% monthly and can participate on first come first serve basis.
Leasing courtyard space secures long term income! Installing a fuel cell in unutilized outdoor space produces chemically generated electricity without combustion, as hydrogen and oxygen converts to water. Fuel cells tie directly into Con Ed, take power off premise, however residual heat generation can be used on site to reduce property heating costs. A minimum of 500sqft, $20,000 per year savings for properties with natural gas and proper clearance for indoor exhaust requirements (standard generator codes apply).
Thursday, October 11
Our annual meeting is a legal requirement, but members attending always enjoy refreshments and a social time, before and after a presentation given by a noted author, historian, or representative of another preservation or parks organization. Topics presented are always pertinent to Carnegie Hill, such as a famous architect or nearby Central Park projects. In addition, CHN president and executive director give a presentation about current building issues, CHN’s activities, and local news; a slate of the board of directors is elected and CHN board members are available to answer neighbors’ questions.
