Potential Operation and Maintenance (O&M) Savings at Schools in the Ft. Worth Independent School District
MetadataShow full item record
As part of the Texas LoanSTAR program, 44 schools in the Fort Worth Independent School District (FWISD) had lighting retrofits performed on there in late 1991. The Energy Systems Laboratory of Texas A&M University is monitoring hourly energy use at two of these 44 schools, Sims Elementary School and Dunbar Middle School. Data analyses at the Energy Systems Laboratory on the monitored data along with utility billing data from 102 other schools in the FWISD, have shown major O&M savings potential in these schools of over one-fourth of the total electricity consumption and gas consumption, which could amount to $ 1,658,000/yr. This report describes the analysis procedure and highlights the O&M energy savings potential in each of the 104 schools.
