Chilled-Water Production Efficiency

Production Efficiency Graph

TECO's goal is to produce chilled water using the least amount of energy – the fewest kilowatts per ton – possible. With few exceptions, TECO has steadily reduced kilowatts per ton each year. (Flooding from Tropical Storm Allison affected results in 2001.)

The keys to success are efficient design; use of efficient components; and proper installation, commissioning and operation. The most notable improvement was between 2011 and 2012 when TECO started operating the new variable-speed chillers, pumps and cooling tower fans and initiated an energy optimization system. Greater efficiency = lower costs and fewer emissions.
