Iconergy was selected to provide Energy Master Planning Services for Colorado Mesa University. The scope included evaluation of campus wide energy efficiency and opportunities for improvements and cost reductions. The campus operates their electric distribution system for the core campus and Iconergy evaluated the opportunities and recommendations for renewables and other utility metering strategies to reduce costs and improve efficiency. Iconergy completed comprehensive benchmarking on their utility data and evaluated rate and purchase options and provided turnkey installation for a campus wide sub metering system that included gas and electric meters. In addition, Iconergy evaluated solar PV opportunities for on building distributed generation and a 2MW off site system connected directly to the utility distribution system and submitted the system for utility approval.
One immediate outcome of the Master Plan was to provide sub-metering information for facilities throughout the university’s portfolio. Iconergy designed and installed a sub-metering system that allowed the university to have visibility at both the building level and within buildings (e.g. spaces leased by concessionaires) for the first time, which then allowed for controls optimization.
