October 2015

Our next meeting is October 5th which will be a tour of Black & Veatch’s new, 30,000-square-foot Rodman Innovation Pavilion and their new Microgrid which was commissioned this spring. It features the integration of Microturbine, geothermal, solar and Smart Analytic technologies. It is also Student Night, please consider sponsoring a student when you register.

Our September 14th luncheon with ASPE had a great turnout. The attendance was 152 (138 ASHRAE and 14 ASPE members). The subject was ASHRAE Standard 188, the standard for legionellosis risk management in building water systems.
