Texas State University-San Marcos has cancelled Utility Manager Pro and replaced it with EnergyCAP energy management software. The University’s Facilities Utilities Operations department made the switch in order to use newer technology that better met their energy management needs.

The search for new software was headed by Utilities Analyst Brittany McCullar, who researched software with more advanced features that are integral to the university’s requirements such as:

  •     tracking submeters and creating chargebacks to bill tenants for energy usage
  •     calculating the savings attributed to energy management projects
  •     interfacing utility billing data with the university’s SAP accounts payable system
  •     receiving building energy ratings from ENERGY STAR’s Portfolio Manager system
  •     accessing utility bill and energy data across the web

McCullar stated, “After extensive research, we concluded the total energy management software package in EnergyCAP would meet our needs and goals. It will bring immediate benefits for automating our data entry and audit process with sophisticated benchmarking, reporting, and project measurement and verification tools. We are very excited to add another tool to provide sustainable utility management improvement for our University.”

After researching energy tracking options, McCullar recommended EnergyCAP for the university. Thanks to a previous Request for Proposal (RFP) by the University of Texas at San Antonio that was awarded to EnergyCAP, Texas State University-San Marcos was able to piggyback on that award, and purchase EnergyCAP quickly. The entire process from research to acquisition took less than three months.

The university is currently implementing EnergyCAP and plans to go live in September 2012 with the project completed in October 2012. EnergyCAP will track 60 buildings and 500 meters for the university.

Texas State University-San Marcos is a public, student-centered, doctoral-granting institution dedicated to excellence in serving the educational needs of the diverse population of Texas and the world beyond, serving over 34,000 students located in Central Texas.

With this contract award, the University joins 100 colleges and universities that use EnergyCAP, including the entire State University of New York system, the entire University of California system, George Mason, Kansas, Yale, Las Vegas, Colorado, Alabama, and Georgia Tech.

EnergyCAP comes in two versions to meet various energy management needs.
