Green Generation Solutions to Upgrade Three GSA Facilities in Fort Worth to Reduce Energy Consumption
Generation Solutions, LLC (GreenGen) has been awarded a Task Order
to design and install energy efficiency upgrades at three Fort Worth,
Texas facilities that will reduce electricity consumption by 35 percent.
The work will be done under an Energy Savings Performance Contract
(ESPC) awarded to GreenGen, a DC region-based company experienced in
engineering and implementing energy efficiency solutions, by the General
Services Administration (GSA) Region 7 in Ft Worth, Texas.
“GreenGen is proud to partner with the GSA to support their vision for
energy stewardship at federal facilities to reduce energy consumption
and greenhouse gas emissions,” said Brad Dockser, CEO, GreenGen. “GSA’s
projects in Fort Worth are an exciting opportunity to deliver energy and
cost savings while reducing carbon emissions.”
The GSA Region 7 contract for $2.14 million will be financed over a
13-year term to implement energy efficiency improvements that will
significantly reduce electricity and natural gas consumption. GreenGen
will focus on a combination of measures including lighting, water, HVAC
and controls to reduce energy consumption in three buildings, including
the Lanham Building, a federal parking garage, and the Mahon Courthouse.
The GSA Region 7 upgrades will impact approximately 1.4 million square
feet of federal assets.
GreenGen is installing nearly 16,000 solid state LED technology lamps
and fixtures at the three buildings and more efficient HVAC equipment
and HVAC controls at two buildings. The lighting improvements will save
in excess of $165,000 annually, and the HVAC improvements will generate
over $33,000 in electrical and natural gas savings in the first year.
Installation will be completed within nine months.
“The efficiencies we are bringing to the GSA through the ENABLE program
will save millions of dollars for US taxpayers and have a very positive
impact on the environment,” said Colonel (Ret) Rick Gonder, GreenGen’s
VP of Project Management. In fact, the GSA Region 7 ESPC will guarantee
minimum first year savings of $190,344 and provide for $3.2 million in
energy and cost savings for the US government during the contract term
while improving the environment.
The Federal Energy Management Program’s ESPC
ENABLE provides a standardized and streamlined process for small
federal facilities to install targeted energy conservation measures.
Projects are administered through the GSA Federal Supply Schedule 84,
Special Identification Number (SIN) 246-53 using a set of
pre-established procurement and technical tools. The program allows
sites an opportunity to implement specific conservation measures
including lighting, water, simple HVAC controls, HVAC system
replacement, and solar PV.
In the past three years, GreenGen has received Notices of Intent to
Award for eight Schedule 84 ESPC ENABLE projects; and recently completed
ENABLE projects with the US Forest Service Region 5 in Southern
California, as well as a lighting upgrade for the Customs
and Border Protection for 10 miles of the US border in the Yuma,
Arizona sector. Last week, GreenGen completed an ENABLE project for the
US Forest Service Region 6 in the Pacific Northwest reducing energy
consumption throughout 392 buildings at 52 sites.
GreenGen has also executed numerous commercial energy efficiency
solutions projects in Texas, including the Dallas/Addison Marriott
Quorum, Houston Hyatt, Scripture Medical Office Building in Denton,
Pinemead Scripture Medical Office Building in Houston, and Tanglewood
Senior Living in Houston.
