Merced Siemens projectCompany: Siemens Building Technologies Division

Customer: City of Merced, Calif.

Installation: Siemens APOGEE® Building Automation System

Completion: Completed

Objective: To help the city reduce its energy consumption while supporting local jobs by hiring local subcontractors to deliver the project.

Work Completed: Siemens, acting as an ESCO, is systematically upgrading building systems across the city’s portfolio of facilities, replacing inefficient HVAC systems and updating controls with Siemens APOGEE® Building Automation System. Merced’s energy efficiency upgrades and equipment retrofits cover 17 main city buildings, seven city parks, and the Merced Regional Airport. The new building control technology will provide Merced facility managers with unprecedented system transparency and a greater degree of control to ensure the continued energy efficiency of the city’s buildings. A streetlight retrofit program will replace the city’s 6,000 sodium vapor lamps with induction lamps, a proven efficient and reliable technology. Overall, when completed, the project is expected to help Merced save a guaranteed 3.3 million kilowatts of electricity annually.
