Highmark, Ex-CEO Agree to Settlement
Mar 29 16
Highmark Inc. and its former president and CEO, Kenneth Melani, reached an out-of-court settlement to end a yearlong legal battle over his firing. Melani was fired in 2012, a week after a fistfight with the estranged husband of his then-girlfriend, Melissa Myler, a Highmark business analyst. Melani sued Highmark for more than $32 million in March 2015, alleging the health insurer owed him $25.85 million in severance and pension payments and that Highmark fired him because he refused to fire Myler.
HIGHMARK Introduces Innovative Energy Storage System to the Northeastern US
Oct 15 15
HIGHMARK has introduced the Building Load Deferment energy storage system to the Northeastern U.S. Building Load Deferment, a form of thermal energy storage and ice storage, enables energy production to be deferred to off-peak hours by storing it for later use, resulting in reduced energy costs by up to 50%. The affordable system can be installed quickly anywhere in a building and it integrates seamlessly with existing equipment. Key benefits of Building Load Deferment include: Reduce energy costs by up to 50%: By deferring HVAC cooling production to off-peak hours through storage technology, energy costs can be reduced by up to 50% due to significantly lower energy prices on nights and weekends and the avoidance of costly peak-demand and spike charges. Install anywhere quickly and easily, with seamless integration: The pre-engineered, pre-determined system can be installed anywhere in a building quickly and easily, and be seamlessly integrated into existing equipment. This simplifies and speeds up the evaluation process and results in more storage than traditional standardized options. Support renewables and sustainability: Renewable energy production is inherently difficult to predict since it depends on the weather. By controlling how a building consumes energy, Building Load Deferment strengthens the position of renewables in the overall energy mix and curbs the use of conventional power plants, in particular the least-efficient ones, which supports sustainability efforts. Qualify for utility rebates: By responding to Con Edison and NYISO load-relief programs, buildings qualify for utility rebates for the energy not used during peak hours " a win-win resulting in greater grid efficiency and a better bottom line for building owners. Pre-determined economics: Building Load Deferment's pre-engineered and pre-determined system offers investment-grade returns for building owners, allowing for faster decision-making and deployment in existing buildings. Maintain building comfort: Energy costs can be reduced and renewables supported all while the same high level of indoor comfort for building occupants is maintained.
