1 Energy Efficiency Upgrades and Retrofits Hans SchreffProgram ManagerChief of Giving Money Away
2 Wake up time…The provincial government has “promised” that electrical rates will rise by 46 % over the next five years
3 Electricity Pricing … The Future Section 7, Electricity Prices:“Over the next five years, residential electricity prices are expected to rise by about 7.9 per cent annually (or 46 per cent over five years). This increase will help pay for critical improvements to the electricity capacity in nuclear and gas, transmission and distribution (accounting for about 44 per cent of the price increase) and investment in new, clean renewable energy generation (56 per cent of the increase)” (Ontario’s Long-Term Energy Plan, 59).In November 2010, the government of Ontario released their long-term energy document. Within that document is the government’s own projection that electricity prices are expected to rise by 46 percent over five years.
4 Con$ervation: We’re good at it…. 7th largest utility in OntarioLargest promoter of MURB retrofitsOn electricity, anywayChill Out refrigerator upgrade program13,000 fridges and $ 1,600,000 +CFL Exchange program500,000 + CFLs and $ 1,000,000Great opportunities; and we’re getting better at giving you moneyEven if you’re not good at taking it...
5 Follow the money…..Ontario Power Authority and your local Electrical Distributor have new incentive programs that workThere is a limitless amount of dollars that you can apply for and actually receiveOnly cap is how much you’re willing, or able, to invest on your endIt can be fast, easy, and rewarding
6 What makes sense for you Not sure if your building is efficientSure your building is NOT efficientPretty sure your building is efficientHaven't a darn clueWho's got the time to figure it out?I have to update my suitesMy common areas need updatingMy appliances are oldMy lighting looks like it did 25 years agoMy HVAC system works just as good as it did when I last replaced itAudit FundingRetrofit Funding
7 Energy Audit Funding…. Why do I need an audit? You need to know what you don’t knowDetermine a real building assessment for now and the futureDetermine what incentives make sense to go afterPrioritize capital expendituresPrioritize maintenance activitiesIt’s a report cardDon’t be afraid to find out what’s bad and maybe you’ll find out what’s good
8 Audit Funding in Ontario… Ontario Power Authority portal for information and applicationsYour local LDC will be able to help you navigate the watersLDC’s need you to do retrofits, so it is in their interest to helpUp to 50% funding availableOn sale now: buy two and save twice as muchIn the long run, it’s a bargain
10 Retrofit: The Real Money…. There is $$$$$ for any electrical saving upgrade that reduces demand on the electrical systemLightingEvery fixture can be upgraded in your buildingAppliancesFridges, dishwasher, washing machines, temp controlsHVACUnitary Rooftop, chillers,MotorsPumps
11 Lighting upgrades throughout.. Garage lightingTypical old T12 - 4’ or 8’ StripsReplace with new high performance T5 or T8 vapor proof fixturesAdd sensors for day lighting and occupancy*Reduce energy by 30% + and increase qualityCommon areas, hallways, stairwellsPL is typical old fluorescent technologyReplace with GU pin fixturesNot much energy saving, but better quality and longer life of lamps (reduces lamp stock, more later)
12 In Suite lighting…cha-ching! Bulk metered buildingsToo good to be true…but it isn’tYou don’t control asset usageYou control the assetSo put in the best product you can to help control the consumption of energy
13 GU24 fixtures…Low cost upgrade that can lead to a reduction of ~75% of your lighting costsGuaranteedPin fixtures prevent the tenant from taking out the CFL you installed and putting in a 60 watt incandescent or 100 watt2 pin configuration available in storesCFL with a different baseOne lamp for everythingAll fixtures including the hallways, stairwells etc
14 Show me the money… Typical 2 bedroom apartment 2 hallway fixtures ( 1 or 2 lamps)1 kitchen fixture ( 2 or three lamps, 100 watts)Range hood, aka nightlight (1 lamp)Dining room fixture (3 to 5 lamps)2 bedroom fixtures ( 4 lamps)1 or 2 bath fixtures (4 to 6 lamps)Storage, closet, other (1 lamp)Let’s say watt lamps (probably more)

18 Project Success: Defined Quality of ExperienceTenantMaintenanceEfficiencyPM$
19 What makes a good project… You’re not quite as good as you thinkYou’re too busyYou don’t quite understand the complexity of the paperworkYou buy on price rather than qualityYou find the cheapest labour, not the best project managerYou’re going to pay, one way or anotherYou’re a property manager, not an electricianbureaucratenergyspecialist
20 Take-aways from here… Use a contractor that has done this before By thousands; not by the dozenThe guy you're using now probably is not the one you want to useDon’t buy on price onlyGreat product is actually only a few cents moreReduce call backsGuarantee a better tenant experienceGet a proper building audit or a thorough count and schedule of replacement fixturesIf you fail to follow above principlesTypically 30% loss of opportunityIncentivesOngoing energy cost reductions
