College Heights Christian Church
College Heights had a problem: 80 HVAC units each with their own thermostat. In order to change settings on their standard programmable thermostats a building engineer had to go to each unit to make the changes. Additionally, the only way they would find out if a HVAC unit was malfunctioning was to get a call from the users of that room.
With 220,000 square feet divided among five buildings dedicated to varying uses from a truck wash to a maintenance facility to a gymnasium to executive offices, Con-Way Truckload needed a variety of energy saving solutions. Over three years and six phases, OES maximized incentive programs while spreading the cash outlay over time. The result is nearly $80,000 in energy savings per year to this client. It kind of makes you wonder what a truck load of cash looks like.
Freeman Hospital – Neosho
With over 50,000 square feet to manage, the team at Freeman Hospital in Neosho reached out to OES for complete management of a lighting overhaul. This project scope allowed a savings of over 60% of the project costs to be covered by rebates while still realizing tremendous energy savings for the long-haul. All the while their regular maintenance crews were able to carry on with their many other projects. The investment was recovered well before the year and a half mark and still going.
Haas Warehousing – Neosho
After performing an energy audit at HAAS Warehousing in Neosho, the expert team at OES designed a lighting upgrade, handled their rebate process and managed installation without interfering in the busy every day operations. With two facilities spanning over 250,000 square feet, they now enjoy brighter light with a 200 kW reduction and still pocket over $20,000 in energy savings per year.
Harps Food Store – Noel
With over $25,000 of incentives available, Harps in Noel looked to OES for a fully turn-key lighting upgrade project. Everything from design, incentive applications, material procurement, installation, clean up and recycling of lighting waste was handled by our professional team. The only thing we left behind was a realized energy savings of over $6,000 each year. I don’t think they minded.
Howard Johnson Enterprises
With a multi-purpose 42,000 square foot facility with offices, warehousing, storage and production areas, Howard Johnson Enterprises was due for a lighting upgrade. While addressing cost savings issues, the OES team also designed the project with improved safety and management in mind. Now their maintenance workload is a bit lighter, and so is their energy bill.
Standard Transportation – Joplin Missouri
Standard Transportation has a number of facilities in the Joplin area. When the Missouri DNR Energize Missouri program was rolled out in 2010, OES developed an application for three of Standard’s warehouses totaling 430,000ft2 of floorspace. Between this program and two others that OES aided in applying for, nearly 1/2 of the lighting upgrade expense was covered through incentive programs.
True Value – Joplin, Neosho and Aurora
For these sister retail companies proper light distribution not only improves the retail experience, but it improves the bottom line. With over $33,000 in combined rebates through Empire District Electric Company, they are not only enjoying whiter light, but over $13,000 in energy savings annually. That kind of makes you want to go buy something.
