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
