This paper presents the implementation of energy efficiency measures in a building that consists of office, lab and clean room area. Total Performance Oriented Optimization and Retrofits (TPORs) were implemented. 594 kW solar panels were installed on the roof and connected to the electrical grid during the optimization process. Ten power meters were installed throughout the building to measure the total building electricity demand, solar generated electricity demand, HVAC and non-HVAC-equipment demand to quantify the energy savings from the implementation of the energy efficiency measures and savings from the solar panels. The electricity savings from optimization on the HVAC system is about..
