Group 2: Net-Zero Solar Gain & Energy Audit
- Goal 1) - pool up energy data from 2018 for Rubenstein buildings
- Broken into two main categories: heating & (NG) cooling (kWh) - All buildings but the Aiken center have meters for the Natural Gas (NG) ○ Aiken receive H/C from school H-vac ○ Now metered by "steam condensate" starting a few years ago. ○ Create macro spreadsheet H/C for 1/1/18 -12/31/18 ○ Chilled water used in the middle of the winter is possible b/c of computer lab on a mild day - In a nutshell find last years (2017) data for the Aiken center H/C, generate daily energy use of 2018 comparing it to 2017 and convert it to 2018. Gary -"should take about a month"
Goal 2) - calculate amount of solar panels need to offset - Hold off till goal one is complete.
