Energy Conservation: Implementing an Effective Campus Program.
After reviewing the physical plant environment and temperature control equipment at Eastfield College (Texas), this paper explains how redirected efforts toward energy conservation can result in important cost/usage savings. Electricity billing rates are explained to provide a stronger usage strategy for cost effectiveness. Two methods of reducing peak energy demand levels are considered: (1) a computerized system that automatically shuts down heating and cooling elements when the identified tolerable peak demand load is approached; and (2) an approach which emphasizes the reduction of overall kilowatt hour usage by turning off lights and adjusting thermostats. The assumptions upon which this second approach is based are outlined, and methods of monitoring utility consumption and of implementing this energy conservation plan are presented. (MB)
