PACE In Action
IBEW/NECA are teaming up to help make the historic Missouri Athletic Club a more energy efficient building through the PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) program. The $2.4 million project is being financed through Set the Pace St. Louis and is the largest PACE clean energy project in the U.S. in 2015. The St. Louis based Kaemmerlen Electric is managing the electrical upgrades. Kaemmerlen is part of the Electric Connection, a partnership of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local One and the St. Louis Chapter of the National Electrical Contractor Association. (NECA).
Missouri University of Science and Technology has committed to be a leader in climate action and sustainable solutions by signing the Second Nature Climate Commitment charter. According to Second Nature, the commitment “integrates a goal of carbon neutrality with climate resilience and provides a systems approach to mitigating and adapting to a changing climate.” Signatories commit to exercising “leadership in their communities and throughout society by providing the knowledge, research, practice, and informed graduates to create a positive and sustainable future.”
Truman State University is in the midst of a $10.5 million energy efficiency upgrade that stands to save the University $1 million yearly. As such, the project will have paid for itself in a little more than 10 years, and profit past that point is surplus. The contract with Kansas City-based Energy Solutions Professionals is enabled by PACE to be as affordable as possible while still using top-of-the-line renewable energy technologies.
Missouri Western State University is partnering with Kansas City Power & Light to install new efficient lighting with the help of PACE cost reductions. The university’s total green investment amounts to over $5 million, according to Gentry, with about 75 percent due to the partnership. The university stands to save around $400,000 annually, as well; all of the savings will be returned to pay for ongoing projects.
