We have established a proven, turn-key approach to deliver projects that significantly reduce operational expenses and improve facility performance with no up-front costs. Read on to learn more about our recent success stories.
U.S. SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION
|TYPE||Office and Parking Garage Lighting Retrofit|
RWH Energy conducted an energy analysis for the Social Security Administration (SSA) Regional facility, managed by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) located in downtown Birmingham, AL. RWH determined that an LED lighting retrofit for both office spaces and the parking garage would result in a 3.96-year ROI. RWH worked hand-in-hand with SSA employees and installed sample LED fixtures for SSA and GSA engineers to conduct a thorough assessment of the lumen levels.
Once the engineers approved the lighting products, RWH arranged financing and was responsible for the design/engineering, procurement, project management, construction management, installation and commissioning of the lighting system that resulted in over $20,000 per month in electric utility savings.
OKLAHOMA CITY UNIVERSITY
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK
|TYPE||Energy Savings Performance|
|COST||Leidos $8.1MM RWH $1.8MM|
|ROI||11 Years (Lighting < 5-year ROI)|
In February of 2016 RWH Energy created a relationship with the University’s Director of Facilities to explore energy savings opportunities and create an energy plan. RWH teamed with Leidos Engineering, conducted a Preliminary Assessment (PA) and the team was selected to perform a campus wide ESPC. The project included steam elimination, chiller optimization, variable refrigerant flow, LED lighting & lighting controls and energy management system upgrades.
RWH Energy was responsible for the preliminary assessment, investment grade audit, design/engineer, project management, procurement, installation and measurement and verification of indoor and outdoor LED lighting upgrades, lighting controls, emergency lighting upgrades campus wide.
U.S. DEPT. OF VETERANS AFFAIRS
|TYPE||Parking Garage Lighting Retrofit|
RWH Energy conducted an energy analysis of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs parking garage located in downtown Birmingham, AL. RWH determined that a lighting retrofit would provide 64% energy reduction by replacing the existing 150W metal halide garage canopy fixtures with 66W LED fixtures.
RWH provided 4 sample LED fixtures for VA engineers to conduct a thorough assessment of the lumen levels and photometrics. Upon approval, RWH was responsible for the design/engineer, procurement, project management, installation, measurement & verification and operations & maintenance. RWH also provided financing and structured a custom sales agreement to facilitate the requirements of the VA. This agreement allowed a true off-balance sheet financial instrument while maintaining an ROI under 4 years.
RWH returned in 2019 and completed Phase II of the project consisting of all interior lighting throughout the clinic. This provided additional energy and maintenance savings by retrofitting all fixtures to LED bulbs.
