Texas Tech’s eSight Energy Management Program Expands as Energy Costs Shrink


Colleges and universities in the US, in general use an average of 18.9 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity and 17 cubic feet of natural gas per square foot (ft2) of floorspace each year. That means that for the average US higher-education buildings sized around 50,000 ft2, energy consumption can cost more than $100,000 each year.

Space heating accounts for most of the natural gas use, while ventilation, lighting and cooling equipment consume the most electricity. As a result, education institutions look to energy management software to track and monitor energy consumption and reduce energy costs.

Our experience

eSight Energy works with several colleges and universities and are pleased to share this case study illustrating our successful work with Texas Tech University.

Download this case study and see how Texas Tech managed to significantly reduce its energy consumption and decrease its energy budget by $6 million. This is despite the campus size increasing by two million ft2 and its student population growing by 63%.
