New Mexico Tech Completes Energy Upgrades

The New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology (New Mexico Tech) completed its combined guaranteed utility savings project.

Following an audit of New Mexico Tech’s facilities, the university entered into a 20-year partnership with Ameresco to address needed upgrades and provide long-term cash flow and reliability benefits. 

The project included the installation of renewable and energy-efficient technologies that are estimated to save New Mexico Tech over $540,000 annually in energy savings and improve its sustainability efforts, including the constriction of 666.8 kW-DC of solar photovoltaic covered parking; water conservation measures; equipment level direct digital control upgrades; building scheduling and controls optimization; chiller plant controls optimization; lab air system rebalancing; variable flow chilled water system pumping, and interior and exterior LED lighting retrofits across campus.

“New Mexico Tech has a strong science and technology education and research mission that includes an emphasis on resource sustainability and energy efficiency,” said Dr. Cleve McDaniel, Vice President for Administration and Finance at New Mexico Tech in a statement. “Our work with Ameresco to dramatically reduce our campus energy usage and costs fits perfectly with our mission.”
