Montgomery County: Bundled Energy Project

THE CHALLENGE
Montgomery County’s complex in Fonda, NY was equipped with energy intensive, aging, and near end of life boilers, AC units and furnaces. Additionally, the aging buildings consisted of building envelope air leak issues and old historic windows, causing outside air infiltration, uneven temperatures and occupant discomfort.

THE SOLUTION
To update the aging equipment, reduce energy usage and enhance occupant comfort, the county implemented a bundled energy project. The project was funded through an energy performance contract, requiring no up-front capital and the ability to use the guaranteed energy savings to pay for the project. The bundled energy project included new mechanical systems and lighting systems, building envelope enhancements and optimization of the existing building automation system.

THE IMPACT
This project has helped the county reduce its energy usage, replace aging equipment, and enhance occupant comfort, while maintaining the integrity and historic look and feel of their buildings.

Annual energy savings: $238K
Annual maintenance savings: $31K
