  • Regional Grid Greenhouse Gases: How much greenhouse gas does this facility’s local electrical grid emit while generating electricity?  (Useful for Location-based greenhouse gas reporting)
Greenhouse Gases 2004 2007 2012 2016 2018
MTCO2/MWh 0.497 0.480 0.389 0.344 0.325
  • The carbon-intensity of the grid has improved about 2.7% points per year over the last 14 years of published data. Reported by the US EPA eGRID for the RFC East subregion (RFCE).
  • Regional Grid Renewables: What percentage of this facility’s local electrical grid is from renewable sources (wind, solar, biomass, hydro, and geothermal)?
Grid Renewables 2004 2007 2012 2016 2018
Percent from renewable sources 3.0% 2.3% 3.4% 4.2% 5.2%

This has been increasing about 0.1% points per year over the last 14 years of published data.  Based on US EPA eGRID data for the RFC East subregion (RFCE).

  • Other Efficiency Measures: Totowa uses efficient Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) in CRAH units, pumps, and air handlers. These VFDs allow the fans and pumps to blow at the minimum speed needed (as opposed to traditional on-or-off units).  In addition, it has heat exchangers to take advantage of “free cooling” from cooler fall and winter outdoor air temperatures.
