Simulations of energy efficiency measures predict saving opportunities of $165,440 per year or nearly 14% of the current total energy consumption. Site EUI is estimated to drop from 124 kBtu/ft 2 .yr (391 kWh/m 2 .yr) to 107 kBtu/ft 2 .yr (337 kWh/m 2 .yr).
Estimated energy savings per annum: 8657 MMBtu
