Measurement and Verification

Location: Roanoke, AL
Owner: Dixie Group Company

SEA was contracted by The Dixie Group to perform measurement and verification of 5 energy conservation measures. The deliverable includes 5 reports provided annually. Each report summarizes the measurement and verification baseline and then details the testing and quantification of the validity of the energy conservation measures.

Overall, this project achieves energy and cost savings through retrofit of the lighting system, boiler replacement, air compressor replacement, unit heater replacement and power-heat-set heat treating tunnel replacement.

SEA and The Dixie Group achieved financing for this program through the ADECA Alabama Saves Program. Alabama Saves is a new and innovative program designed to save energy and boost employment. The Dixie Group is the first business approved to participate in the AlabamaSaves program.
