FMS- Peak Demand Electricity Management Event – July 16, 2013

 

To: All Carnegie Mellon University Pittsburgh Students, Faculty and Staff

From: Facilities Management Services

Subject Line: Peak Demand Electricity Management Event – July 16, 2013

 

 

Dear Members of the University Community:

 

Carnegie Mellon University has been asked to reduce electricity demand from 3:00 PM until 6:00 PM today, Tuesday, July 16, 2013.  FMS actions in support of this request will affect only main campus buildings south of Forbes Avenue and east of Junction Hollow and the hill dormitories.

 

During this period FMS personnel will be turning off air conditioning systems in unoccupied spaces and will allow temperatures to vary more widely than usual in non-critical occupied spaces.

 

We ask for your cooperation in this effort by:

Turning off lights and equipment such as window air conditioners and computers if you can manage to continue your normal tasks without them and when you leave for the day.

Not open windows, let us know if you are too cold by calling 8-2910 and FMS will make adjustments (reduce air flow first, then raise discharge temps)

And we are asking for you to call or e-mail if your department’s large rooms are not occupied during this time and FMS AC mechanics will program the thermostats to reduce the cooling.

Our goal is to keep load below 13 MW.  Although maintaining reliability on the electric grid is our major driver in participating in this test, there are also financial and environmental incentives for minimizing our impact during peak periods.

 

For further information, or if you have any questions, please contact me at ma3q@andrew.cmu.edu or 412-268-2529 or Kyle Tomer at kt2n@andrew.cmu.edu . Thank you for your cooperation.

 

Sincerely,

Marty Altschul
