14 14 Energy Quiz – Could I answer these? Do I understand why they are important? My company spent $________ for electricity last year and used ______ kWh My company spent $________ for natural gas last year and used ______ MCF The cost and use figures are ___%, ___%, ___%, and ___% higher or lower than the prior year If asked, I could readily develop an energy budget, by utility meter, for next year Y/N In this FY we are currently ___% over/under budget for natural gas, and ____% over/under for electric The temperature forecast for the next 14 days calls for ______ HDD and ______ CDD The forecast mentioned above will cause my company to use ____% more gas ____% electric The top three drivers of my natural gas use are _______________________________________________________ The top three drivers of my electric use are __________________________________________________________ Natural gas in storage is ____BCF. That is ____% higher or lower than last year and ____% from the 5-yr average The upcoming U.S. hurricane season is expected to be worse, better or equal to the 100-year average Natural gas and electric prices are correlated Y/N If so, which commodity drives the other? If I have a choice of heating fuels, I would know how to value and select the least cost alternative? My electric utility charges me a penalty for low power factor? If so, it is costing me $_______/month. Last month I paid multiple utility bills and I am confident each amount was correct Y/N ? I am confident a faulty utility meter (water, electric, gas) would be promptly identified by our maintenance staff? I received literature talking about energy conservation measures (ECM) for lighting, ventilation, motors, etc. I am confident were doing all we can to identify ECMs and I would be able to perform a cost/benefit analysis on the same?

17 17 Kalahari Involvement – Next Steps

18 18 Sample Testimonial It has been my pleasure to work with Mark Burns in developing Green's electric and gas aggregation programs. Green was one of the first municipalities to initiate an aggregation program and Mr. Burns' knowledge and drive were instrumental in getting this accomplished in a timely and cost efficient manner. The city of Green has saved its residents literally millions of dollars in reduced costs for both power and natural gas. Given Mr. Burns extensive knowledge and customer responsiveness, I would recommend him unconditionally to coordinate any utility based study. Dan Croghan, Mayor, City of Green, Ohio
