City of Houston Energy Performance Contract | Houston, TX
Siemens received support from Bocci Engineering for their Energy Performance Contract with the City of Houston. The services provided included investment-grade energy audits for several municipal buildings, the complete development of a solar hot water heating system, and a feasibility study to bid documents.
This resulted in 23 measures meeting the City's criteria of a payback under 20 years across 10 locations. The measures covered all major building systems, including lighting, HVAC, and building control systems. They represented a total utility savings of 750,000 kWh of electricity and 25,000 therms of natural gas, leading to an annual cost savings of $117,000 and a reduction of 600 tons of carbon dioxide.
