Energy Audits & Strategy for New Orleans Public Schools


Location:  New Orleans, LA

Contract Completion:  January 2010

Project Cost:  $500,000

Hernandez Consulting provided energy modeling, energy auditing, and general energy efficiency consulting services to the New Orleans Public School System, including an overall energy efficiency conservation strategy. We used utility data and building plans to conduct initial assessments of schools. During site visits, our team evaluated the condition of HVAC, kitchen, lighting and other control equipment for energy. The information collected was organized and analyzed in computer models and presented in a report along with a list of the most effective Energy Conservation Measures, Water Conservation Measures, and Facility Improvement Measures, to include payback analysis, equipment review/selection and final recommendations. The comprehensive energy audit report is being used by A/E Design teams for deciding retro-fits, improvements, and new construction changes in order to achieve LEED Silver certification for the schools.
