Commissioning services were performed for this 37,000 square foot, publicly funded facility, which was the first LEED v4 Platinum certified building in Colorado, and fourth in the entire world. The building also earned an ENERGY STAR® score of 100 for operations in 2017 and features a 104-kilowatt solar system. In addition to being one of the most energy-efficient buildings in the state, more than 95 percent of the construction waste was diverted from landfills.

The City installed a 90kWh, solar PV microgrid that uses a lithium-ion energy storage system that will be a pilot under several operational case scenarios to better understand the benefits of energy storage from both the building owner’s perspective as well as the utility perspective. Initial case scenarios that are being included are demand limiting, demand response, and emergency backup. Iconergy provided commissioning services starting with participation of initial concept and design reviews, to equipment startup and functional testing.
