  • East Cherry Creek Valley Water and Sanitation District

    Aurora, Colorado

    The RMH Group conducted an energy audit to analyze the energy consumption of East Cherry Creek Valley Water and Sanitation District’s office building with a goal of reducing building energy use. To complete this audit, RMH created a simulated energy model to mimic the building energy consumption within 3% of the actual building operation and to analyze the viability of various energy conservation measures (ECMs), investigated potential alternative energy sources, investigated potential rebates, performed calculations of anticipated implementation costs and monetary savings for ECMs, and prioritized and recommended ECMs based on the shortest anticipated payback period and/or the greatest anticipated return. From this analysis, RMH identified eight low-cost ECMs to reduce energy consumption for implementation over the short term. They include:
    • Adding night setback controls to modify system operating hours
    • Utilizing economizer controls
    • Installing new occupancy sensors for lighting
    • Reducing glycol concentration in the roof-top unit
    • Minimizing simultaneous heating and cooling
    • Rebalancing the air distribution
    • Modifying the hot water reset control
    • Installing Solatubes for the garage bay(s)
    The client has been using the energy audit report to implement operations modifications and to plan for future upgrades.
