Energy AssessmentsRidge Oak 5

In 2011, we performed an investment grade Energy Audit for these villages, as well as an Energy Efficiency Review of building drawings and specifications for the two proposed villages. Susan Dee Associates was responsible for conducting the site visit, energy assessment, energy calculations, cost estimates, and report.

Ridge Oak 3A very detailed energy use benchmark was prepared for the 12 villages including a sample of tenant-paid utilities. The analysis was prepared per building for a comparison of energy efficiency across the campus.

We also prepared a solar assessment to determine if PV panels were cost-effective.

The ASHRAE Level 3 energy audit on over 250,000 square feet of multifamily residential and office space recommended measures costing $1,500,000 with fuel savings of 309,000 kWh and 62,240 therms.
