Benefits of Adopting a Campus Strategic Energy Plan
- Actively managing and reducing overall energy consumption provides an opportunity for the university to reduce overall campus electric and gas consumption as well as the campus carbon footprint.
- Applying these standards and utilizing the Peak Demand Limits this summer will save an estimated $106,500 in electricity charges.
Influencing Peak Capacity Charges
- Implementing the Demand Response load shed plans on the five to eight days predicted for calculating capacity charges will reduce the University’s capacity charges for 2017. It is estimated this could result in savings of more than $85,000.
Participating in Load Shed Events
- The Demand Response events this summer could generate more than $37,000 in revenue.
