PROBLEM

This issues at St. Anne’s-Belfield, like those seen at similar institutions across the country, were all too familiar. Aging infrastructure and inefficient systems were dramatically affecting energy use costs in dorms, classrooms, offices and athletic facilities across both of the school’s campuses. Additionally, water costs were on the rise and identified as another key issue.

SOLUTION

Southland Energy was selected to provide comprehensive energy- and water-saving upgrades for St. Anne’s-Belfield, including seven buildings and 300,000 square feet across two campuses. The project provided replacement of aging and inefficient systems and equipment at both the Belfield and Greenway Rise campuses, including dorms, classrooms, offices, and athletic facilities.

Southland Energy’s scope of work involved lighting upgrades, boiler, chiller, and fan coil unit replacements, controls upgrades and integration, high efficiency pumps, motors, and variable frequency drives. In addition, Southland Energy performed water-saving upgrades, comprised of plumbing fixtures and irrigation.

The project was the first award under VirginiaSAVES, a new program designed to reduce the cost of energy efficiency projects and provide low or no-cost long-term financing. By teaming with the school’s finance and operations staff, Southland developed an all-encompassing solution to reduce cost and address the aging infrastructure. The project is fully self-funding (annual savings exceed debt service costs) and reduces the school’s carbon footprint by 28 percent. Southland is also providing energy education curriculum support to the school’s integrated model.
