  1. draft energy conservation plans

    To all:

    Attached is a draft document of some of my best thoughts on where the campus is going and/or should go in the next several years as we try to reduce the campus energy consumption from mechanical equipment controls perspective.  This is an evolving document at this point.

  2. Quick payback projects

    Associated Project(s): 

    At some point in the past, perhaps FY 09, Terry Ruprecht and the Provost’s office worked out an agreement to provide a funding source for “quick payback projects.” This meant that the payback was expected to be quick, typically in the 1-3 year range. This was a onetime funding source.  A variety of projects (10-15) have been brought forward and funded at a value of approximately 1 million dollars. These projects have included lighting retrofits, fume hood removals, chiller control upgrades, adding variable frequency drives (VFDs) to HVAC equipment,  temperature control  upgrades, and hot water control valve replacements.
