"The energy project completed by Seiberlich Trane Energy Services not only made our campuses more green, but provided much needed upgrades to our facilities for our people."
Delaware Health and Social Services (DHSS) is the largest state agency in Delaware and has a mission to improve the quality of life for Delaware’s citizens by promoting health and well-being, fostering self-sufficiency, and protecting vulnerable populations.
DHSS consists of 5 state service centers, 5 individual buildings, and 3 campus sites with a combined total of 53 buildings spread throughout the state of Delaware. DHSS partnered with Seiberlich Trane Energy Services to modernize their facilities’ infrastructure and reduce utility spending.
Seiberlich Trane Energy Services completed an investment grade audit of DHSS’s facilities and executed a performance contract to provide design and construction of needed building improvements. The work was setup as a multi-phase approach with the first phase focusing on lighting, water, and steam improvements. The second phase included replacing aging equipment, BAS upgrades, and installing solar arrays on multiple campuses.
The project realized both energy and operations savings. Additionally the solar arrays generate 632,871 kWh of electricity for DHSS's faciliies annually.
The annual environmental impact of the project included a 5,975 ton reduction in CO2 equivalent emissions.
