AEP Ohio has recognized Ohio University for its commitment to energy efficiency, the environment and taking part in AEP Ohio’s savings incentives programs for businesses in 2015. The University worked closely with AEP Ohio energy outreach advisors to maximize savings through energy efficient facility and equipment upgrades and new construction projects throughout the year. As a result of the University’s leadership and participation in the AEP Ohio Business Incentives Program, OHIO will avoid the usage of 531,064 kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity and emissions of 399.63 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) annually, according to a certificate presented to Ohio University by AEP Ohio. This energy savings is equivalent to getting 84.32 cars off the road per year; the annual CO2 generation of 36.37 single-family homes; or the CO2 absorbed by 10,230.53 tree seedlings grown for 10 years. The University pays $.065 per (kWh) for its electricity, so the reduction of 531,064 kWh results in a savings of $35,000 per year. According to Claire Naisby, building systems integration manager, energy efficiency upgrades on existing buildings and new construction projects help contribute to Ohio University’s Sustainability Plan. The Sustainability Plan, which was adopted in 2012, outlines the University’s sustainability-focused priorities including reducing greenhouse gas emissions and reducing energy intensity. Campus building systems involved in energy efficiency upgrade projects include heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, controls, and lighting. Upgrading these systems in existing and new buildings generates more efficient usage, which results in energy savings. In addition to equipment upgrades, lighting upgrades help the University save energy and money as well. Naisby explained that OHIO receives a small rebate on the purchase of energy as a result of upgrading to LED lighting. “Not only do the upgrades help the University with saving energy, they help qualify OHIO for rebates,” Naisby said. She likened the energy rebates to an energy efficiency revolving fund, explaining that the rebates OHIO receives for completing energy efficiency upgrades help to fund additional projects of the same kind. Facilities Management will soon complete implementation of EnergyCAP, an online software that is used for tracking, managing, processing, reporting, benchmarking, and analyzing utility bills as well as energy and sustainability information. “This software will allow us to better manage and measure energy efficiency projects on campus, which will in turn increase further savings,” said Naisby. Additionally, the University’s new building management systems have begun to help the University save money. These systems enable facilities management to program summer or nighttime setbacks, so that buildings are not cooled as much during evening times when they are not occupied to manage buildings more efficiently and effectively. “We are always looking for ways to save the University energy and money. Energy efficiency and management is one of the most cost-effective way for OHIO to be a leader in sustainability,” said Steve Wood, associate vice president for facilities management and safety.
