$1.2 Million Contract Provides For Energy Enhancements at 19 City Facilities

DALLAS – TAC, a world leader in Open Systems for Building IT®, security systems and energy solutions, has been awarded a $1.2 million performance contract with the City of Harlingen, Texas, to design and construct energy conservation-related projects at 19 city facilities as well as implement street and traffic light improvements citywide. The project will be funded through the resulting energy savings and utility company rebates.

Facilities involved in the contract include the City Hall, the Harlingen Public Library, five fire stations, the municipal auditorium, the community center, a cultural center, the city museum and other municipal service facilities. The TAC Vista® energy management system will be installed citywide to improve occupant comfort, reduce energy costs, and monitor and control the mechanical systems and energy consumption within all the facilities. Energy conservation measures include retrofitting more than 2,000 of the facilities’ lighting fixtures, replacing street lamps and installing new traffic control lights in 74 intersections to provide the community with new, more energy efficient lighting. In addition, the City Hall will receive new heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment.

As TAC’s first city performance contract in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, the installation is anticipated to take 12 months to complete. Annual projected savings resulting from the energy conservation measures range from $130,696 in each of the first five years to $115,196 during each of the following 10 years.
