EEI was contracted to provide professional retro-commissioning services for the three VISN networks enumerated above. The scope for each campus specifically addressed the HVAC systems and equipment located in designated buildings chosen by the VA, and consisted of four phases: Planning, Investigation, Implementation and Integration (or Systems Action Required) Phase. (Please note only VISN 15 included the additional phases for Implementation and Integration).
VISN 6 includes eight (8) medical centers located in North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia, collectively covering approximately 5.6M SF. EEI identified 2,179 facility improvement measures, of which 140 were recommended for implementation based on payback. The energy conservation measures, if implemented, will save the VA $1,848,780 in energy dollars and 30.6 Million kWh in electricity per year.
VISN 15 includes six (6) medical centers located in Kansas and Missouri, collectively covering approximately 3M SF. Each medical center is comprised of multiple buildings with broad varying ages of construction and HVAC upgrades. EEI identified 517 potential facility improvement measures, of which 133 were recommended for implementation based on payback. The VA chose to implement 70. The implemented energy conservation measures will save the VA $677,514 in energy dollars and 5 Million kWh in electricity per year.
VISN 19 includes six (6) VA hospitals in Colorado, Montana, Utah and Wyoming, collectively covering approximately 2.83 Million SF. EEI identified 1,198 facility improvement measures, of which 73 were recommended for implementation based on payback. The energy conservation measures, if implemented, will save the VA $458,752 in energy dollars and 4.8 Million kWh in electricity per year.
