Overview

In 2007, Mayor Buddy Dyer initiated Green Works Orlando to transform the city into one of the most environmentally-friendly communities in the nation. As part of this program, TLC was awarded a contract to audit, identify and develop energy conservation measures (ECMs) for the 25-year old City Hall, following TLC’s successful audit and installation of ECMs for 27 city-owned buildings.

Features

The City of Orlando is committed to sustainable building and energy efficient designs. TLC completed an ASHRAE Level II audit of the 11-story administrative office building, revealing several opportunities for improving energy performance including recommendations to reduce the lighting density from 1.9 watts/sf to .7 watts/square foot, with a projected annual savings of $133,165 and a 4.3 year payback. Additionally, implementing a new building automation systems (BAS) is projected annual savings of $77,160, based on a calibrated energy model. The energy model predicted annual operational cost savings of the identified Facility Improvement Measures at $167,413, and the estimated total annual operational cost savings of the ECMs at $154,405.
