Retrofit Savings for Brazos County
MetadataShow full item record
This report presents the energy and dollar savings for the period May 2000 - April 2001 for 10 of the Brazos County facilities that have been retrofit. The electricity use saved was 555,170 kWh and the demand was 1062 kW, which is equivalent to a $31,743 dollars savings, $24,650 from electricity use and $7,093 from the electric demand. These savings represent a 60.8% of the audit-estimated savings and a 93.7% of the audit-estimated savings if just the positive one were taken in account. The savings have improved somewhat from the previous report that included the billing periods for January to August 1999. The savings for the earlier period were 48.0% of the audit-estimated savings that means compared with 60.8% for the current period. In general has been an improvement in the energy saving in most of the facilities. The cases where are observed negative savings are the Minimum Security Jail, where is known that the area was increased significantly, the Arena Hall, where the modeling can be normalized due to kind of use of this facility, and the Road and bridges Shop, which looks to be operated more time in this period.
