Portfolio of six sites totaling 720kW/1,548kWh utilizing Acumen EMS to reduce demand charges at schools
INDIANAPOLIS, Nov. 8, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The MSD Wayne Township school district and Veregy have deployed a portfolio of energy storage systems across six elementary schools utilizing Energy Toolbase’s Acumen EMS controls software and BYD’s state-of-the-art battery technology. Energy Toolbase procured an all-in-one energy storage system totaling 720kW/1,548kWh in energy storage capacity with BYD’s CHESS units, enabling the energy storage system to accurately target peak demand charges using Acumen EMS. The Energy Toolbase and BYD partnership allows developers to take a modular approach to smaller C&I projects by stacking the CHESS 120kW/258kWh units to fit the project needs.
The systems are included in an extensive portfolio of nine schools, all designed and installed by Veregy. Veregy has implemented over twenty energy conservation measures (ECMs), including solar canopies at six locations, battery storage at nine sites, live energy monitoring, HVAC upgrades, and LED lighting. The energy savings project is estimated to save the district $58 million over the next 25 years.
“We are honored to be assisting in helping put more money back into the classrooms and student experience within the school district,” said Kevin Mulvey, Vice President of Operations at Energy Toolbase. “We are confident that our Acumen EMS offering can accomplish the savings expected at each school.”
Veregy’s new energy plan tactically sets the school district up to bank on their efforts and allows more savings over time, freeing up necessary financing and enabling district funds to funnel directly back into the classrooms. The MSD Wayne school district is estimated to save over 12 million pounds of carbon dioxide annually. Veregy will be crucial in assisting the district to reach five facilities with net-zero emissions.
