Mine Safety Health Administration to receive over $415,000 of guaranteed annual cost savings.
VALHALLA, NY – April 3, 2017: ConEdison Solutions (CES), one of America’s leading energy services companies, has signed an energy savings performance contract (ESPC) with the United States Department of Labor for DOL’s Mine and Safety Health Administration’s (MSHA) 288,000 square foot facility in Beaver, West Virginia.
The MSHA works to reduce deaths, injuries, and illnesses in the nation’s mines with a variety of activities and programs.
As the selected energy services company, ConEdison Solutions is responsible for all phases of MSHA’s ESPC project, including the development and engineering phase, coordinating the project’s financing and implementation, and the post-construction services associated with the ESPC.
“ConEdison Solutions is extremely proud to partner with the Department of Labor on this important cost savings initiative, and we recognize the honorable work the Mine and Safety Health Administration undertakes to ensure the health and safety of those in the mining industry,” said Mark Noyes, President and CEO of ConEdison Solutions. “Our team is eager to get to work on implementing innovative upgrades to the West Virginia facility to maximize efficiency and provide high-performing systems.”
Prior to signing the ESPC on December 20, 2016, CES developed and finalized an investment grade audit report with MSHA. ConEdison Solutions evaluated all of the Department of Energy’s nineteen Technical Categories of energy efficiency improvements at MSHA, while analyzing the facility’s current energy consumption and potential areas for improvement. ConEdison Solutions then proposed a number of energy efficiency improvements for MSHA based on its facility’s needs and overall project economics. This ESPC project will include the following energy efficiency upgrades: Domestic Hot Water Heaters, Cooling Towers, Energy Management and Controls System, Air Handling Units, Lighting Improvements, Water Conservation Measures, and Vending Machine Controls.
The contract supports over $415,000 of guaranteed annual cost savings to the Department of Labor in the first year and over $290,000 thereafter. The project has a 15.8 year simple payback.
