Desert Sands Unified School District, CA.

Preliminary Engineering Audit of DSUSD Schools

Imperial Irrigation District, one of the public utility companies serving the Imperial and Coachella valley areas in the south eastern part of California, requested the service of Lincus engineers to provide a preliminary energy engineering audit of nearly 25 school buildings. These buildings owned and maintained by the Desert Sands Unified School District (DSUSD) consists of a about (14) Elementary, (6) Middle, and (5) High School buildings that exceed a total of ~2.4 million square feet with an estimated annual electric cost of approximately $ 2.975 million.

Lincus engineers performed the following tasks towards the completion of this project:

Estimated total worth of proposed energy projects were about $ 4,633,597 which in turn translated to about 7.1 years of time in average payback period including utility incentives of about $ 336,237 from IID.
