Abstract

Using National Grid data for Nantucket, we constructed a baseline model of electricity use showing the diurnal, seasonal and annual consumption patterns for five municipal facilities, including the Solid Waste Treatment Facility, Waste Water Treatment Facility, Airport, High School, and Elementary School. In addition we conducted energy audits of five small businesses and identified several cost effective options to reduce electricity consumption. These results provide the Town's Energy Studies Committee a scientific basis for formulating actionable plans energy reduction plans.
