Western Nevada Community College's plan to implement a $1,718,613 energy cost saving contract has been endorsed by the Board of Regents of the University and Community College System of Nevada. The contract with APS Energy Services of Las Vegas will save between $116,000 and $445,000 over the course of the 15-year contract.
System improvements will be made at all WNCC campuses and learning centers, including the upgrade, standardization, and centralization of all direct digital control systems. Lighting, HVAC equipment and water conservation efforts will also be enhanced.
WNCC President Carol Lucey requested the Board approve the contract. "It's a win-win. The state and the college will save money by installing and upgrading systems that use less energy and resources by standardizing controls, reducing run times and upgrading obsolete equipment. We have initiated a number of energy-saving programs in the past few years and this contract will consolidate and streamline those and future efforts."
