01 Project Overview

Located 70 miles west of Washington, D.C. in the scenic countryside of Front Royal, Virginia, Randolph-Macon Academy (RMA) is a leading co-educational day and boarding school for students in grades six through 12. Aiming to do more than prepare students for college, the academy focuses on providing student with a solid foundation in knowledge, leadership, and character.

PROBLEM

Many of the building systems across RMA’s 135-acre campus were quickly becoming antiquated, resulting in inadequate cooling and heating, along with excessive water usage.

SOLUTION

Southland Energy began with a detailed energy audit of the RMA campus, which identified inefficient systems and equipment in myriad classrooms, dorms, offices, worship spaces, meeting rooms, and athletic facilities. By teaming with the school’s finance, facilities, and operations staff, Southland Energy then developed and implemented a self-funded, bundled energy and facility renewal program to replace over $1.5 million in end-of-life equipment and increase the school’s energy efficiency. Because the project costs were offset by the energy and operational savings, Southland Energy was able to provide RMA with new cooling, heating and water conservation technology across its entire campus at essentially no cost.
