“The jacket designed by Thermaxx Jackets for the DA tank has made it so much cooler in the area already.”
Energy Management, American University
American University is a leader in the education sector, both in Washington, DC and worldwide. In 2011, AU was awarded the Gold rating (the highest) by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE). They are also #2 on The Sierra Club’s list of “Top 10 Greenest Colleges.” So, it was an easy choice for them to partner with ThermaXX and the DC Sustainable Energy Utility (DCSEU) to improve energy efficiency even further on campus.
In an effort to make operations more sustainable, American University took advantage of DCSEU’s custom incentive program, which provides lucrative rebates for high-efficiency retrofits of lighting, HVAC, and other energy systems within commercial facilities.
