Location: Dayton, Ohio
Type: PACE Financing
Dayton’s tallest building, Kettering Tower, is the home of Dayton’s first PACE project. The high-rise office building was built in 1970, stands 30 floors tall, and has over 500,000 square feet.
Plug Smart identified a PACE-compliant energy conservation package that helped the Kettering Tower owners save on energy costs. We also helped solicit and facilitate project financing through the local PACE program. The project scope included:
New building automation system
Cooling tower upgrades
High efficiency LED lighting
Air handling variable frequency drive upgrades and occupancy control
Domestic hot water motors and variable frequency drives
Since a PACE project had never been done in Dayton, a lot of program development was required to facilitate the project’s financing. Kettering Tower was a great fit to be the program’s pioneer since the building needed infrastructure improvements as well as improvements in its ability to manage energy on its major systems.
