Cover Story: Reducing energy consumption and carbon footprint, P2S Engineer James Valiensi, discusses CSUN project in PM Engineer Magazine

Featured on the cover and interviewed in the April 2011 issue of PME (PM Engineering) Magazine, P2S Engineer James Valiensi, P.E., LEED GA, discusses how P2S worked with California State University Northridge to develop and design an efficient solution that would accommodate student water needs and space heating in four student apartment buildings on the university campus.


The solution, eight tankless water heaters, not only reduces energy requirements, but saved the university engineering and construction costs it would’ve incurred to restructure the roof to support a traditional boiler and take system.
“Many people don’t realize just how much hot water these tankless water systems can deliver over a given time span,” said Valiensi in the article, “Eight is Enough” written by Bob Hitchner.

A survey of student residents conducted after the installation of the new heaters in August 2010, showed that 77% were content with the new hot water service. Plus, an energy-savings analysis showed that the university has reduced energy consumption by 60%.
