University of Idaho

In the spring of 2005, McKinstry was selected as the ESCO for the University of Idaho.  Competition for this project was significant and included Siemens, Johnson Controls, Chevron, and other ESCOs.

McKinstry’s focus during the audit was on several key systems, including central heating, chilled water, lighting, and building HVAC systems. In addition, we explored opportunities for renewable energy technology. We had been in preliminary discussions with the U of I around several specific solutions to some of their current challenges regarding these systems and look forward to a long term successful relationship.
