Energy Performance Contract (EPC). In 1996, the State offered an opportunity for agencies to participate in an EPC pilot program. SIUE was one of only two universities to participate and had by far the largest program. Partnering with Johnson Controls, we borrowed funds to upgrade the lighting and many of the energy control systems with our partner (Johnson Controls) guaranteeing that the savings would pay for the project. Over the years, the project paid for itself and generated additional savings that were invested into buildings such as the Museum Storage Building and the 200 University Park building that now houses Pharmacy. Over the life of the loan, the University saved more than $2M over the loan cost. The cost avoidance continues about $1M per year in reduced electric bills, and the reduced consumption reduces our carbon footprint.
Since 1996 SIUE has reduced its overall energy use by 20%
