Facilities: A Sampling of Sustainability Efforts Guaranteed Energy Savings Agreement (GESA) Geothermal LEED Building Construction Natural Gas Vehicles Green Cleaning Campus Shuttle Bus Recycling Biodiesel Green Roofs Mulching Mowers Organic Fertilizer Tree Plantings Renewable Energy Conservation Efforts Using recycled materials Green building materials/finishes Energy Website: http://www.wcupa.edu/_Information/AFA/Facilities/Energy/http://www.wcupa.edu/_Information/AFA/Facilities/Energy/
Guaranteed Energy Savings Agreement (GESA) A 15-year program to reduce energy costs by 20-25% Improvements to HVAC systems, weatherizing, solar film on windows, boiler plant modifications, campus wide energy management & control Upgrading Gas & Electrical systems: higher voltage distribution-expansion reducing our electricity costs
GESA - Saving Resources Annually 12,400,000 KWH of Elect. Energy 266,000 MCF of Natural Gas 115,000 Gallons of Fuel Oil 37,000 MMBtu of Steam 20,000,000 Gallons of Water & Sewer (- 500) Tons of Coal
GESA - Reducing Emissions 5,300 tons of Sulfur Dioxide 7,800 tons of Carbon Dioxide 19 tons of Nitrogen Oxides
Geothermal: A Timely Opportunity 50 Year old Steam Plant Title V & Air Emissions Reduce Utility Costs Residence Hall Replacement (33%) 4 E&G Building Renovations (14%) GESA new HVAC systems in 2 Buildings (8%)
Geothermal Benefits 1. Emission Reduction 85 tons SOx 54 tons NOx 44 tons particulate 2. Title V Permit 3. Utility Savings: $1 M/yr $18.6 M over 15 years
