PROJECT OVERVIEW

Through the implementation of this project, Long Beach Public Schools will enjoy the benefits of 12 unique energy conservation measures (ECMs). This scope includes comprehensive interior/exterior LED Lighting upgrades, boiler burner controls, kitchen hood controls, walk-in freezer/cooler controls, building envelope improvements, pipe insulation, steam traps, and computer load management software, roof upgrades, roof mounted Solar Photovoltaic (Solar PV) capacity, Cogeneration, and the upgrade of the district-wide building management system. Before this project, the District had various control systems at various buildings that were very difficult to monitor, utilize, and maintain. After the project is complete, the District will enjoy a single platform to troubleshoot and control the buildings’ temperature settings to increase student and occupant comfort.

Five Examples of 10+ Energy Conservation Measures:

  • LED Lighting and Lighting Control Upgrades
  • Cogeneration Unit
  • Computer Power Management
  • Photovoltaic Systems
  • Roof Replacement

PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS

Roof Replacements at the High School and the West Elementary School

From the earliest discussions between The ECG Group and Long Beach Public Schools, the goal of this project was to replace the leaking roofs at the Long Beach High School and the West Elementary School. The ECG Group assisted the District to develop an RFP to solicit Energy Services Companies (ESCOs) to submit EPC proposals focusing on the replacement of these roofs. Through this process, the District received 6 proposals from competing ESCOs. The ECG Group conducted detailed technical and financial evaluations of each proposal to assist the District with selecting their EPC partner for the project.

“ECG’s team is extremely knowledgeable about the many intricacies of an energy performance contract. Their depth of knowledge and expert guidance helped me make informed decisions on behalf of the District, and feel confident that the project was always in our best interest.

I wholeheartedly recommend ECG to any organization interested in receiving the maximum benefit from an energy performance contract.”
