South Carolina Department of Transportation Headquarters Building Cuts Energy Use by 41%

South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) partnered with the experts at Trane to reduce their building’s energy use by 41 percent while helping to improve building comfort, indoor air quality and lighting.

The building upgrades significantly increased staff productivity, especially for the facilities management staff, as the building is now easier to manage and control. Now, the building is realizing a 19 percent reduction in kWh and an 85 percent reduction in therms. The project is expected to save the agency more than $258,500 with an operational cost savings guarantee of more than $75,425 annually.
