Fulton County officials received a check from Georgia Power this week resulting from energy savings realized through the CBRE | Heery & McAfee3 joint-venture's management of renovations at the Fulton County Justice Center, including refurbishment and upgrades of equipment by Trane.
Georgia Power paid the rebate as part of their Commercial Energy Efficiency Program based on the projected energy savings from the project. The project involved Trane's refurbishment of three chillers in the Justice Center Complex 's Central Plant, refurbishment work on air handling units within the Justice Center Tower, new control valves on the air handling units, new motors on the supply fans to improve efficiency, and a building automation system for the chillers and air handling units involved.
Commissioners issued a proclamation recognizing the project and the $194,888.30 rebate. Project Management Director Don Green (pictured, fourth from right) and Senior Engineer Joshua Gillespie (pictured, second from right) represented CBRE | Heery at the Board of Commissioners meeting and check presentation on November 6th.
The project realizes an energy savings at the Justice Center of about 20% or 3.6 million kilowatt hours annually, which is equivalent to the power used by about 346 homes in a year.
