Electricity usage data from our new metering system shows that the Chiller Plant uses the most total electricity, followed at a great distance by Russell Library, Centennial Center, and the Wellness Center. From April to December 2012, on the Metered buildings (not including residence halls), we used about 54,500 Kw-hr/day, which roughly works out to $5500/day.
When the electricity use is normalized by area (Kw-hr/sq ft), there is a different story. Excluding the Centennial Center, which is rather unique, Parks Memorial uses the greatest amount of electricity per square foot. Does anyone know what they do in there that uses so much electricity?
Please, can you help us find a way to conserve electricity?
