Edison Energy was contracted by Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC) to provide retro-commissioning (RCx) services on their Oak Creek, Downtown and Mequon campuses in Milwaukee, WI, executed through the Focus on Energy incentive program. In addition to identifying low and no cost improvements typical to an RCx effort, our team investigated certain capital improvement opportunities at the Campuses.
As part of our engagement with MATC, we performed detailed investigation of MATC’s energy consuming systems and recommended energy conservation opportunities. We also assisted the client during implementation by providing engineering support. We are currently providing final verification to the projects that are implemented.
Through the RCx process of systematically reviewing and testing the building’s control programming to make sure it is operating properly and configured for optimal operation, MATC was able to achieve significant energy and demand savings while ensuring that the major building systems are operating efficiently.
In addition to RCx services, Edison Energy has provided a range of services to MATC, including: commissioning (Cx), sustainability studies, facilities operations problem solving, and humidity studies. All of these services have resulted in substantial energy reduction and operational improvement to the campus.
As a Focus on Energy Trade Ally, Edison Energy worked with Focus on Energy in order to provide funding and incentives to the project in order to provide even further savings opportunities to MATC.
