Constellation Wins Energy Contract with National Aquarium
The National Aquarium is implementing energy and water conservation measures at its 33-year-old Baltimore facility, and has hired Constellation for the project. The Aquarium will implement $3.7 million in energy and water conservation measures through a 15-year energy savings performance contract (ESPC) with Constellation.
The improvements provided require no upfront capital from the National Aquarium and are guaranteed to provide $235,000 in cost savings annually. The aquarium will use the guaranteed savings in addition to utility rebates for energy efficiency upgrades to fund the project.
Maryland Clean Energy Center facilitated the project financing for the National Aquarium with its lender.
The aquarium’s energy and water conservation measures will include lighting upgrades and controls, chiller and boiler replacements, building envelope improvements, updated water fixtures and controls as well as transformer replacements. Work is scheduled for completion in early 2015.
