Rama Road Elem. School
1035 Rama Road
Charlotte, NC 28211
Rama Road Elementary was constructed in 1964 with additions in 1981, 1992, and 2000. It is a single-floor facility totaling 87,454 square feet. It has two air-cooled chillers, one water-tube boiler, and two pipe-unit ventilators.
Energy use peaked in 2003-2004 for both electricity and natural gas. We started looking at controls and maintenance procedures and operations. We have reduced both electrical consumption and natural gas consumption by changing the control schemes and completing preventive maintenance on a schedule.
This facility's energy use has declined 9.8 percent in the last 2 years, thanks to a district-wide focus on conservation and to a strong commitment by students and staff to save energy. We believe we can reduce consumption even more this year through some identified opportunities.
