Minimum project size: 10kW.
Program Services Benchmarking. Compare facility energy usage by square footage, type, vintage, etc. Provides a starting point (if needed) to set energy management goals. Energy Master Planning. Convene decision makers to set energy management criteria and goals. Set the path and take control of your own energy destiny.
2013 Budget & Goals Program Demand Savings (kW) Energy Savings (kWh/yr) Available Incentives ($) SCORE/ CitySmart 2,300 kW5,439,960 kWh$488,299 Commercial Solutions 2,200 kW9,257,000 kWh$570,140
2013 Changes from the PUCT Winter peak (outdoor lighting). Deemed savings for chillers Deemed savings for Solar PV Deemed savings for AHU VFDs. Peak kW savings for lighting controls. New refrigeration and commercial kitchen measures.
Winter Peak Energy efficiency savings measures that affect peak demand. Eligible timeframe: M-F 6 p.m. – 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. – 10 a.m. Dec 1 – Feb 28. Excludes weekends and Federal Holidays.
Outdoor Lighting (Winter Peak) Defined as lighting that is controlled by dusk/dawn sensor or timer. These lights must remain ON throughout the night to qualify as deemed savings. Outdoor lighting with occupancy controls must be measured and verified
Early Retirement for Chillers and PTAC Units Early Retirement, ROB, NC requirements now apply to chillers and PTAC units. Deemed savings baseline is a sliding scale based on age of existing HVAC system. Demand and energy coefficients have been updated. 1-5% drop in kW, 5 – 16% increase in kWh. New building types for HVAC have been added.
Deemed Saving for AHU VFDs Deemed savings VFD installed on AHU motors from 1 – 100hp. In order to qualify for deemed savings, the building must have an existing variable-air- volume (VAV) system. The conditioned air volume must be controlled by either outlet dampers, inlet dampers, or inlet guide vanes.
2013 Refrigeration Deemed Savings Measures Solid & glass door reach-ins. Electronic defrost controls. ECM evaporator fan motors. Evaporator fan controls. Cooler night covers. Strip curtains. Zero-energy doors. Door heater controls.
2013 Food Service Deemed Savings Measures Electric convection ovens. Electric combination ovens. ENERGY STAR dishwashers. ENERGY STAR steam cookers. ENERGY STAR fryers. ENERGY STAR hot food cabinets. Vending machine controls. Pre-rinse spray valves.
2013 Lighting Deemed Savings High Performance T8 Lighting. Lamp/ballast combination MUST be on the Consortium for Energy Efficiency list. www.CEE1.org. www.CEE1.org T5 Lighting. Does not adhere to CEE qualifications. LEDs. All LEDs MUST be on either the Energy Star List or the Design Lights Consortium List. www.designlights.org and www.energystar.gov. www.designlights.orgwww.energystar.gov
Participating in 2013, Deemed Savings Update to occupancy sensor/daylight control measure: Peak demand (kW) savings will be available soon. No changes to the existing energy savings (kWh). New measure added for guestroom, dorm and multi-family occupancy controls. Master card key control.
Geothermal Heating & Cooling Russell V. Buras – President / CEO
How it works? Ground Source Heat Pump Unit U.S. EPA has stated: Geothermal systems are the most energy- efficient, environmentally clean and cost- effective space conditioning system available today.
e BENEFITS OF GEO Save energy and operational costs. Architectural flexibility. No towers, boilers, strip heat, dual fuel. No outside vandalism or theft. Simple and solid design. Low maintenance. No outside noise. Highest efficiency ratings. Long loop field life cycle. LEED points / ENERGY STAR ®. Federal tax incentives. Qualifies for EE programs. Micro utility options available. Loops
