ETC Group receives Xcel Energy Trade Partner Award for Banner North Colorado Medical Center ReCx Project
2 years ago
As a result of Banner Health's commitment to reduce energy use at all of their facilities, ETC Group was selected (through Xcel Energy) to provide retro-commission (RCx) services at their North Colorado Medical Center (950,000 sf). Xcel's RCx program provides rebates to customers for increasing the energy efficiency of their existing building operations through low- or no-cost improvements. ETC Group engineers studied 5 medical campus buildings and identified improvements to air handler unit function; including deficiency correction, optimization strategies, and runtime reduction. Pretty simple right? These projects reduced energy consumption by 1,564,006 kWh (electric) and 34,904 dth (natural gas). The annual savings of $242,938 exceeded the project costs of $216,380 and demonstrate this successful project with a ‘simple payback’ of less than 1 year. It just makes sense financially and environmentally!
ETC Group is proud to work with Xcel Energy to provide customers with engineering solutions that create successful energy efficiency projects. It supports our mission of saving time, energy and the planet!
