Constellation will implement $10 million in energy efficiency upgrades throughout the 13-acre Philadelphia campus of Thomas Jefferson University and Hospitals. Jefferson is expected to see a complete return on its investment in less than 5 years. By implementing energy conservation measures, it is projected that Jefferson will conserve an estimated 14 million kilowatt-hours of electricity and avoid the creation of 6,000 tons of carbon dioxide annually.
“For more than a decade, Constellation has worked with Jefferson to help meet its environmental goals and reduce energy costs though more efficient systems,” said Larry Godleski, executive director, distributed energy and efficiency for Constellation. “This project combined with previous conservation measures is expected to save the system more than $4 million in energy and operating costs each year.”
The conservation measures to be installed by Constellation include: installation of a steam micro-turbine generator, chilled water plant upgrades, energy-efficient lighting and occupancy sensors, HVAC occupancy controls, and steam system replacements. Work is scheduled for completion by the end of 2016.
