Truman State University and Energy Solutions Professionals (ESP) are partnering on a $10.5 million project to address energy-saving opportunities, major infrastructure upgrades and deferred maintenance needs that will be paid for by over $1 million dollars in annual energy and operational savings—requiring no funds from Missouri taxpayers.
The project is yet another result of the University’s energy and conservation program, TRU Impact, and includes 25 buildings on campus that will feature enhanced learning and living environments. Construction began over the summer and is planned to be completed by Fall of 2016.
“This is an excellent example of what can be accomplished by a university that is committed to efficiency and conservation,” stated Jeff Flathman, president of Energy Solutions Professionals. “By redirecting funds that were previously going to utility costs, Truman State University is separating itself as a leader in financial and environmental stewardship.”
A wide array of upgrades will be used to save energy, including: LED and fluorescent lighting retrofits and lighting controls; water saving devices; building envelope improvements; enhancements to the building automation system; heating, ventilation and air-conditioning equipment upgrades and replacements; retro-commissioning; chiller replacements; boiler replacements; duct and pipe insulation; lab hood improvements; steam trap replacements; and improvements to the steam distribution and condensate systems.
The environmental benefits from the project include a reduction of 9,521 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions annually, which is the equivalent of removing over 2,000 passenger vehicles from the road each year.
