This project for the Kentucky Community & Technical College System was a Guaranteed Energy Savings Contract that included 20 buildings, over 725,383 square feet, at two separate community colleges. The first college, Ashland Community and Technical College, consists of three separate campuses. The second, Bluegrass Community and Technical College, has two main campuses and four remote campuses. The project was 100% funded through energy and operational savings.
5 buildings received extensive HVAC renovations with DDC control systems
All 20 buildings received building control upgrades and were integrated into Commonwealth Energy Management and Control System (CEMCS)
Lighting upgrades across all the buildings included LED fixtures, occupancy controls, and photocell controls
Water efficiency upgrades consisted of low flow plumbing fixtures
Computer power management across both colleges
Ashland/Bluegrass Energy Use
Our project replaced multiple systems at the end of their life, as well as resolving many of the control issues that we were experiencing throughout our college. CMTA has been a valuable asset after the project as well, through the review of our data. Their reviews have provided additional savings.
