Memorable ECO moments

As the Energy Project Manager, John has seen many ECO projects through. Some of his memorable projects are system upgrades for the campus such as installing a booster chiller at the Mondavi BWFP that allows us to re-pump the TES during the winter, and removing an old cooling tower at Jungerman. 


Favorite building on campus

The rifle range is a favorite of John's. It is currently part of several efficiency projects and is serving as a model for potential future implementation on campuses. The VRF and HVAC project is conducted by PG&E for future building codes. The Power Over Ethernet (POE) Lighting project is looking to power lighting system in offices using an ethernet connection to conserve energy.
