Indiana’s MSD Wayne Township school district and Veregy have deployed a portfolio of energy storage systems across six elementary schools utilizing Energy Toolbase’s Acumen EMS controls software and BYD’s state-of-the-art battery technology. Energy Toolbase procured an all-in-one energy storage system totaling 720 kW/1,548 kWh in energy storage capacity with BYD’s CHESS units, enabling the energy storage system to accurately target peak demand charges using Acumen EMS. The Energy Toolbase and BYD partnership allows developers to take a modular approach to smaller C&I projects by stacking the CHESS 120 kW/258 kWh units to fit the project needs.
The systems are included in an extensive portfolio of nine schools, all designed and installed by Veregy. Veregy has implemented over 20 energy conservation measures (ECMs), including solar canopies at six locations, battery storage at nine sites, live energy monitoring, HVAC upgrades and LED lighting. The energy savings project is estimated to save the district $58 million over the next 25 years.
“We are honored to be assisting in helping put more money back into the classrooms and student experience within the school district,” said Kevin Mulvey, VP of operations at Energy Toolbase. “We are confident that our Acumen EMS offering can accomplish the savings expected at each school.”
