Atlanta-based Georgia Power awarded the Georgia Institute for Technology (Georgia Tech), an IDEA member also in Atlanta, with a $500,000 rebate check on July 14. The rebate is the largest ever issued through Georgia Power’s Commercial Energy Efficiency Program, and was given to Georgia Tech to mark the completion of its most recent effort to implement energy-efficiency upgrades at two facilities on campus. Georgia Power presented the rebate check to Georgia Tech at a special event at the Georgia Tech Environmental Biosystems Building.
Georgia Tech earned the rebate by completing various energy-efficiency upgrades that began in October 2015 and were completed in March of this year. The planning and design process for these upgrades began even earlier in June 2014, followed by an energy audit conducted by Johnson Controls, a member of IDEA (headquartered in Milwaukee, Wis.), in December 2014. The project had a budget of $7.7 million. Locally based RMF Engineering, also a member of IDEA, was the design engineer on the project, with multiple project committee and team members from Georgia Tech as part of the planning team.
