"---" indicates that no data was submitted for this field

Figures needed to determine total building energy consumption:
Performance Year Baseline Year
Grid-purchased electricity 2,551.50 MMBtu 2,573.31 MMBtu
Electricity from on-site renewables 0 MMBtu 0 MMBtu
District steam/hot water (sourced from offsite) 0 MMBtu 0 MMBtu
Energy from all other sources (e.g., natural gas, fuel oil, propane/LPG, district chilled water, coal/coke, biomass) 35,245.98 MMBtu 33,664.30 MMBtu
Total 37,797.49 MMBtu 36,237.61 MMBtu

Start and end dates of the performance year and baseline year (or 3-year periods):
Start Date End Date
Performance Year July 1, 2015 June 30, 2016
Baseline Year July 1, 2014 June 30, 2015

A brief description of when and why the building energy consumption baseline was adopted (e.g. in sustainability plans and policies or in the context of other reporting obligations):

The baseline was the last complete set of data.


Gross floor area of building space:
Performance Year Baseline Year
Gross floor area of building space 831,440 Gross Square Feet 831,440 Gross Square Feet

Source-site ratio for grid-purchased electricity:
3.34

Total building energy consumption per unit of floor area:
Performance Year Baseline Year
Site energy 0.05 MMBtu / GSF 0.04 MMBtu / GSF
Source energy 0.05 MMBtu / GSF 0.05 MMBtu / GSF

Percentage reduction in total building energy consumption (source energy) per unit of floor area from baseline:
0

Degree days, performance year (base 65 °F / 18 °C):
Degree days (see help icon above)

A brief description of the institution's initiatives to shift individual attitudes and practices in regard to energy efficiency (e.g. outreach and education efforts):

Energy use reduction by residents of Hilltop Residence Hall is an ongoing outreach and education effort by the Office of Residence Life staff.


A brief description of energy use standards and controls employed by the institution (e.g. building temperature standards, occupancy and vacancy sensors):

We have an unwritten comfort implication on campus.
Apx. 68 Heating / 72 Cooling


A brief description of Light Emitting Diode (LED) lighting and other energy-efficient lighting strategies employed by the institution:

Parking lot lights, pathway lights, building overhead fixtures are being replaced at end of life with LEDs.


A brief description of passive solar heating, geothermal systems, and related strategies employed by the institution:

We have a passive evacuated tube solar thermal system on our Wildcat Field House athletic facility capable of delivering 85 MMBtu's annually to heat domestic water and reheat for the building.


A brief description of co-generation employed by the institution, e.g. combined heat and power (CHP):

We have a 10,000 watt grid tied solar panel system in the Wildcat Field House athletic facility.


A brief description of the institution's initiatives to replace energy-consuming appliances, equipment and systems with high efficiency alternatives (e.g. building re-commissioning or retrofit programs):

We are actively involved in an ongoing commissioning & retro-commissioning process.
