LIVERPOOL CSD CHESTNUT HILL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL – LIVERPOOL, NY
Taitem provided energy consulting services including energy modeling to fulfill requirements for the 179D Tax deduction for the renovation of this elementary school. Our team generated a proposed energy model with the as-built building and mechanical system parameters using design documents and specifications and created a baseline model (using ASHRAE 90.1 – 2007 and Performance Rating Method (PRM) of Appendix G in Standard 90.1 – 2007) as a modeling guide. Our team also provided a detailed energy performance narrative along with a certification of compliance report.
The improvements that have been incorporated into the building will reduce the total energy and power costs, with respect to combined usage of the building’s envelope, heating, cooling, ventilation, hot water and lighting systems, by more than 50% as compared to a Reference Building that meets the minimum efficiency requirements of ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2007.
