News from SEDAC
Adlai E. Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire has been awarded an inaugural Emerald award in recognition of their outstanding energy conservation and sustainability efforts in the Existing Building category. They will be presented with the award at the USGBC Illinois Chapter's Limelight event on May 10, 2012.
SEDAC performed a specialized energy assessment for the high school in collaboration with the design firm CannonDesign. The assessment identified $344,000 in annual energy cost savings or 2.2 million kWh and 18,000 therm savings for the school. The school adopted many of the recommendations and Cannon Design used the energy assessment in their submittal for LEED EB Status. SEDAC continues to work with Stevenson High School as part of the Public Sector Retro-Commissioning Program. The school's retro-commissioning recommendations alone are expected to save 1 million kWh or $90,000 annually with a payback of about 6 months.
