▪ Infrared heating systems.

▪ Control system improvements.

▪ Lighting improvements.

▪ Water conservation measures.

▪ Geothermal heat pumps.

▪ Centralized chilled water systems.

▪ High efficiency boiler applications.

▪ Retrocommissioning opportunities.

▪ Energy efficient equipment upgrades systems design including:

– Geothermal systems at 4 buildings

– Solar water heating

– High efficiency condensing boilers

– Chillers

– Variable volume air handler conversions

– Pumping systems optimization

▪ 2,300,000 square feet.

▪ $44,000,000 total project cost.
