Facility Executive – New Mexico Tech Works With Ameresco To Reduce Energy Usage

Following an audit of its facilities, the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology entered into a 20-year combined guaranteed utility savings project partnership with Ameresco. The project addresses needed upgrades and provides New Mexico Tech with long-term cash flow and reliability benefits well beyond the contract term.

As part of the comprehensive project, Ameresco installed renewable and energy efficient technologies that are estimated to save New Mexico Tech over $540,000 annually in energy savings and improve its overall sustainability efforts. Implemented upgrades include the construction of 666.8 kW-DC of solar photovoltaic covered parking; water conservation measures; equipment level direct digital control upgrades; building scheduling and controls optimization; chiller plant controls optimization; lab air system rebalancing; variable flow chilled water system pumping; and interior and exterior LED lighting retrofits across campus.
