PROBLEM

With PUSD having already established a solid relationship with our sister company Envise to address its short-term energy use needs through a maintenance optimization program, Southland Energy was brought into the fold to help strategically address the myriad long-term challenges presented by antiquated infrastructure and mechanical and electrical systems across the district. 

SOLUTION

A joint development effort between Southland Energy and Envise, the initial consulting project included facility condition assessments (FCA) and ASHRAE Level 2 energy audits at 38 PUSD sites. This work (completed in connection with Little Architects and their parallel effort to develop a district master plan) found the district had a $560M infrastructure need, $85M of which was related to mechanical, electrical needs.  

The FCA study and its findings supported a $360M bond request, which was approved by voters in November 2016 will address most of the mechanical, electrical and controls funding requirement. The bond, however, was not enough to cover all of their infrastructure needs, leaving an $85M gap. Fortunately, Southland was able to develop an innovative performance contract solution to help them fill most of that gap. The resulting $73M energy program – more than half of which will be self-executed as a partnership between Southland Energy and Envise — projects a 70% reduction in district energy use through energy efficiency and renewable energy measures.
