Elementary school portfolio part of a district-wide energy efficiency push at MSD Wayne Township
Energy Toolbase and Veregy are deploying an energy storage portfolio utilizing Acumen EMS™ across six sites in the MSD Wayne Township school district. Located in Indianapolis, this portfolio will be Energy Toolbase’s first group of battery systems in the state. It is also the second largest guaranteed energy savings contract in Indiana, demonstrating the district’s commitment and dedication to becoming a leader in renewable energy.
The total energy storage capacity across the six sites is 720kW/1,548kWh, utilizing BYD’s leading-edge technology and Energy Toolbase’s Acumen EMS. BYD takes a modular approach with its CHESS systems to fit the smaller C&I market by providing building blocks of 120kW/258kWh. The competitive cost paired with the high-power output allows the system to target peak demand charges with Acumen EMS. This contributed to a total guaranteed savings of $30 million.
These systems are a part of a larger portfolio of nine schools, designed and installed by Veregy. They are implementing over 20 various energy conservation measures (ECM) including solar canopies, battery storage, HVAC, and LED lighting. These upgrades put the district on track to reduce over 12 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions annually, along with helping five sites meet net-zero targets. This proactive approach is expected to save approximately $58 million over the next 25 years.
“We are excited to play a part in this innovative energy efficiency effort with the school district and partner with such a respected developer to bring this project to life,” said Jordyn Fenner, Enterprise Account Manager at Energy Toolbase. “We’re hopeful that more school districts across the country will seek to replicate this holistic approach to energy management, where multiple conservation measures are put in place.”
“Veregy is honored to partner with MSD Wayne Township in implementing such a large and vast energy efficiency push,” said Lindsay Yazel, Marketing Manager at Veregy. “Bringing together our expertise, along with Energy Toolbase’s intelligent Acumen EMS controls will result in record-breaking savings over the next 25 years.”
