Texas Wesleyan Spends $6.2M for Energy Upgrades

Texas Wesleyan University in Fort Worth is undergoing a campus-wide infrastructure project to reduce energy use. The $6.2 million project is self-funded and will save the university more than $12 million over the next 15 years. The upgrades are expected to also save more than 7.2 million kWh per year.

Brian Franks, executive director for facilities development and operations, will oversee the project, which will be implemented by The Way Companies based in Houston.

The project will begin in December and should be completed by February 2016.

Energy-saving upgrades include:

  • Utilizing Combined Heat and Power (CHP) technology for electrical, cooling and heating needs
  • Replacing and upgrading HVAC controls in 16 campus buildings
  • Upgrading 1,559 interior and exterior lighting fixtures with LED lighting technology
  • Reducing computer power consumption by running computer load management software

The Way Companies has completed similar energy-saving and construction projects at the University of Texas at Austin, the University of Houston, Baylor University and Rice University.
