Title: Stevenson High School S.D. 125 in Lincolnshire, IL
Abstract: Adlai Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire, Illinois, has partnered with Johnson Controls Inc. in two phases of Performance Contracting. Funding was acquired based on performance-based energy & operational savings with less than a 10 year payback. High efficiency lighting & control, Variable frequency drives (on air and water heating systems), and a 2250kW generation system, are being controlled and monitored through a Johnson Controls, Inc., Metasys control system. Generation system was installed to provide a consistent reliable source of electricity, thus eliminating school closings due to power outages. Trending of energy use through the control system allows for automated load shedding sequence decisions to be made. Students & instructors are annually given a "behind the scenes tour" of the HVAC & generation system by Johnson Controls, Inc. staff.
