Kenmore –Tonawanda UFSD Detailed Energy Audit
The Kenmore – Town of Tonawanda Union Free School District included 13 large buildings and a number of smaller support buildings totaling over 1.8 million sf. As subconsultant to an ESCO, C.J. Brown Energy performed detailed facility assessments and energy conservation studies in support of the Phase I energy performance contract. The estimated net energy cost savings were more than $840,000 per year. Also included in the project was the subsequent mechanical and electrical design work for select remedial upgrades.
The measures evaluated included: night setback and unoccupied ventilation; reduce hot water circulating pump hours; improve facility ventilation; increase boiler combustion efficiency; install high efficiency motors; reduce fan operating hours; install facility management systems; and electric to gas conversion of heating and hot water equipment.
