Document Description
Pursuant to the Governor's Energy Executive Order S-20-04 calling for a reduction in energy load by 20 percent by the year 2015 for all state facilities, CDCR is undertaking a number of energy savings programs. Currently, CDCR will be implementing two energy savings programs at CSP Corcoran. The first in the replacement of 2,100 high density discharge (HID) light bulbs (and associated fixtures) with induction light fixtures. HID bulbs are 250 to 400 watts per fixture and are typically replaced every other year. The induction light bulbs have a 10-year warranty and will result in an energy savings of 2.3 million kilowatt hours. This retrofit program includes certification of the proper disposal and recycle of the HID bulbs and fixtures. The second energy-savings program at CSP Corcoran is installation of a control system on the facility's cooling and heating unit to comply with the Governor's "Green Team" standards of 68 degrees F in winter months and 78 degrees F in summer months.
