A TES System provides increases efficiency and dehumidification, which allows for less energy consumption. The chiller plants were designed with highly-reliable Trane® air- and water-cooled chillers, ranging from 600 to 1200 tons, to accommodate the varied needs of the sites. Running at cooler temperatures, the chiller plants provide better dehumidification, an important benefit in the humid Florida climate, and operate more efficiently, with less pumping and fan energy consumption. After comparing options, the district selected the superior design and operation of the CALMAC® IceBank® energy storage tanks for the plants combined with a Trane TRACER® control system complete with advanced Intelligent Services. In one of the locations, the chiller plants at three schools, situated in close proximity of each other, were replaced with a centralized chiller plant built in-between them. The centralized plant, which includes over two miles of underground piping to connect the schools to the plant, allowed the district to reduce chiller capacity by 300 tons which cut cost and significantly provided the overall efficiency of all three schools.
