In May, Honeywell and the City of Huntington WV, home to more than 47,000 residents, announced the third phase of a 15-year energy savings performance contract (ESPC), which in all three phases is expected to save approximately $4.8 million in total operating costs for the city.
This current phase includes a comprehensive LED lighting system upgrade aimed at improving overall energy efficiency and occupant comfort levels, all while helping to reduce maintenance frequency. The LED lighting technology will be complemented with occupancy sensors across portions of the facilities to automatically control the lighting. In addition, HVAC system improvements and a control system upgrade will be made at City Hall. The improvements under this phase are expected to generate approximately $112,000 in annual energy and operational savings.
