Target Field Ball Park
We all know Target Field as the beautiful ball park located in downtown Minneapolis, but less commonly known, is that it was built with energy efficiency in mind. At the 5 year benchmark, the MN Twins facilities management team decided the facility needed a “tune-up” to keep it in top working order. ICS Consulting, Inc. called on SES, Inc. to perform a full-scale recommissioning study in conjunction with support from the Twins’ maintenance and management personnel, Xcel Energy, CenterPoint Energy, and NRG Energy, Inc.
Recommissioning Savings Identified: Over 9% of annual steam, gas, and electric costs.
Total Savings Identified: Nearly 14% of annual steam, gas, and electric costs with an overall ROI of about 45%.
Total Implemented Electric Savings: 1,000,000+ kWhs
