Project Description

Arkansas Tech University selected Performance Services to implement a campus-wide energy savings program utilizing the Arkansas Energy Performance Contracting (AEPC) Program. Essential improvements included LED lighting retrofits and building automation systems upgrades across the campus. In addition to these energy improvements, the Energy Leadership program was implemented across the campus. An energy manager leads the behavioral-based student and staff energy awareness and cost reduction program, utilizing a web-based energy dashboard that provides real-time energy data to monitor and inform campus energy usage. Together, these improvements are expected to reduce annual utility costs by 13.8%.
