CUSTOMER: Southeast Arkansas College 

THE OPPORTUNITY

Southeast Arkansas College, a.k.a. SEARK, is a regional two-year college that's committed to improving the efficiency of its equipment and buildings throughout campus. To help meet this goal, SEARK administrators partnered with the staff of Entergy Arkansas' CoolSaverSM A/C Tune-up Program, a local participating contractor and Entergy Arkansas' CitySmart® Program.

THE PROJECT

The CoolSaver program team, CitySmart team, and SEARK staff worked together to improve water and energy efficiency on campus by:

  • Conducting CoolSaver A/C Tune-ups for 29 HVAC units. These tune-ups include adjusting refrigerant charge to manufacturer specifications as well as cleaning evaporator coils, outdoor condensers and blowers.
  • Replacing existing lighting fixtures with high-efficiency units.
  • Installing faucet aerators that reduce the amount of water used while washing hands.

THE RESULTS

As a result of its energy efficiency efforts, SEARK earned a $5,150 incentive from Entergy Arkansas' CoolSaver program. This incentive and the resulting work reduced annual energy consumption by 27,166 kilowatt-hours and cut annual energy costs by more than $5,100.
