Case Study

Stanford University

Cantor Art Center and Green West Library

In this project, Salas O’Brien provided energy services for the Cantor Art Center & Cecil H. Green Library at Stanford University. Our team’s energy audits focused on the electric humidification, steam-to-steam humidification, and direct digital controls—including wireless zone sensing, economizers, and variable frequency drives on fans and pumps.

Commissioning, measurement, and verification of these projects resulted in delivered incentives of $181,518 for the library and $122,792 for the art center. Salas O’Brien’s work provided overall verified savings of $520,000 through measurement and verification, resulting in a payback of less than three years.
