Document Description
The project proposes three Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs) for the DMV's Watsonville Field Office site. The first measure (lighting) includes replacing existing inefficient indirect light fixtures with lower wattage higher efficiency light fixtures throughout the building. This ECM will provide energy efficiency upgrades. The second measure (Irrigation) includes the site's irrigation control system upgrade with weather based irrigation controllers and software. This irrigation control system will be internet based, allowing for automatic adjustments for daily scheduling, cycling, and soaking, thus preventing excess water use. The third measure (HVAC) includes replacing rooftop furnace units with new high efficiency equipment. The existing units are old, inefficient and at the end of their useful lives. Replacing the units with new equipment will result in energy savings, because the current units are less efficient than the modern equipment. The construction contractor will follow any hazardous material waste handling and disposal with respect to appropriate local, state, and federal rules/regulations.
