This project for the Kentucky Community & Technical College System was a Guaranteed Energy Savings Contract for Henderson Community College. 6 buildings on the main campus were included in the project scope. This project was 100% funded through energy and operational savings.  

Project highlights include the replacement of three boilers and one chiller, the large-scale upgrade of controls, extensive lighting efficiency upgrades, and utility rate savings. 

  • A new air-cooled dual-circuit chiller was installed in the Arts and Sciences Building, as well as new refrigerant piping, condensing unit, and chilled water buffer tank - the existing chiller was demolished
  • Three existing boilers in the Academic/Technical Building were demolished and three new condensing boilers were installed
  • New JACE-8000s (Java Application Control Engines) were installed in the Arts and Sciences Building and Preston Arts Center, implementing optimized scheduling, night setbacks, and zone humidity control
  • Variable Frequency Drives were installed for each base-mounted geothermal pump in the Sullivan Technology Center to improve efficiency
  • A capacitor bank was installed to increase overall campus electrical efficiency
  • Interior and exterior lights were replaced with LED lighting across 6 buildings
