Honeywell and the City of Huntington, West Virginia, announced the third phase of a 15-year energy savings performance contract (ESPC), which in all three phases is expected to save approximately USD 4.8 million in total operating costs for the city.
This current phase includes a comprehensive LED lighting system upgrade aimed at improving overall energy efficiency and occupant comfort levels, all while helping to reduce maintenance frequency. The LED lighting technology will be complemented with occupancy sensors across portions of the facilities to automatically control the lighting. In addition, HVAC system improvements and a control system upgrade will be made at City Hall. The improvements under this phase are expected to generate approximately USD 112,000 in annual energy and operational savings.
The current project scope will cover 14 buildings, including: City Hall, Big Sandy Superstore Arena, Huntington Police Department, A.D. Lewis Community Center, Fairfield East Community Center, Safety Town, Centennial Fire Station No. 1, Guyandotte Fire Station No. 5, Westmoreland Fire Station No. 8, University Fire Station No. 2, John W. Gallagher Fire Station No. 10, St. Cloud Fire Station No. 4 and the Public Works Department’s Traffic Building. This phase of the contract is expected to be completed in September 2019.
“We are focused on bringing energy savings and enhanced comfort levels to Huntington residents and employees through these city facility enhancements,” said Wayne Kent, Vice President and General Manager Americas of Honeywell Building Solutions. “Project upgrades, specifically at the Big Sandy Superstore Arena, will help to attract a wider variety of events, while optimizing energy consumption and comfort levels in some of the city’s most critical facilities – including the police department and fire stations.”
