Danforth Plant Science Center

DDPSC is a 78,000 sq.ft. research facility that has very precise and intensive temperature and humidity design conditions. 4 years after construction, after auditing and analyzing energy use, $503,000 was applied to energy efficiency measures. The result was a 44% reduction in natural gas use and 12% reduction in electricity. The pay- back period was less than three years and cumulatively over $1.2M has been saved.
