TELLERENERGY.COM Teller County – Asset Management FACILITES Parks Wind and Solar at Hayden Divide Community Park – First county facility using alternative energy Programmable sprinkler system at Hayden Divide decreased water usage

5 Energy Efficiency in Southern Teller County TELLERENERGY.COM

6 City of Cripple Creek TELLERENERGY.COM Audits of municipal buildings and facilities, and subsequent conversion to high- efficiency lighting Experimenting with new induction technology for high-efficiency street lighting alternatives

7 City of Victor TELLERENERGY.COM Recent energy audit of all municipal buildings and facilities Upgrades to high-efficiency heating equipment in City’s garage and Fire Station facilities Conversion from propane to higher efficiency natural gas in municipal, commercial and residential buildings

8 Cripple Creek Victor Re-1 TELLERENERGY.COM High school HVAC units and control upgrades, new windows and proximity detectors for lighting Board-approved Power Purchase Agreement for 200 kW PV system to reduce energy needs, while providing curriculum opportunities for studying renewable energies Grant-funded geodesic greenhouse

9 Cripple Creek & Victor Gold Mining Company Long-term wind anemometer studies to determine wind power feasibility, spurring Mariah Energy to develop Vertical Axis Wind Turbine “Wind to Hydrogen” project in the Gold Camp area Household recycling programs for employees Motion sensor and natural lighting improvements to save energy Heating upgrades to reduce evaporation and thereby conserve water resources Infrastructure upgrades E-Waste Recycling Earth Day event at area schools (30,000 lbs. of electronic materials were recycled at this event last year) TELLERENERGY.COM

10 Energy Efficiency Successes in Southern Teller County Community of Caring Southern Teller County Transportation Committee Low Income Weatherization Program in collaboration with LEAP and Social Services Refrigerator Swap Program with Black Hills Energy TELLERENERGY.COM Aspen Mine Center

11 Recycling in the Region TELLERENERGY.COM

12 Waste Management Recycling at Wal-Mart ADD DIVIDE First “single-stream” recycling provider in our region, providing for an additional 30% more recycling for consumers Their firm provides for 21 jobs in this community Newspaper, Cardboard and Plastics #1-7 are recycled most often TELLERENERGY.COM

13 Aluminum and Tin Cans Brown Paper Bags Empty Aerosol cans Glass bottles & jars Junk Mail & Magazines Newspapers Office Paper Paperboard (cereal & tissue boxes) Plastics ( #1-7) ONLY Started offering recycling to customers in 2009

14 City of Woodland Park – Recent Projects Currently replacing / Retrofitting “EXIT “ signs with LED application (2010-2011) Retrofitting fluorescent tubes with LED replacements in areas where lighting is necessary 24/7 (2010-2011) Converted to LED outdoor directional lighting at Teen Center behind City Hall, night- time-sky-friendly (2009) TELLERENERGY.COM

15 City of Woodland Park – Upcoming Projects Conducting a conversion analysis for other City facilities to switch out to LED lighting where appropriate Researching options for similar LED application for use in Police Operations Center and Dispatch facility Developing a funding strategy to add insulation to City Hall and Police Operations Center and Dispatch Facility TELLERENERGY.COM

16 City of Woodland Park – Energy Savings Electrical usage in City facilities was 9.5% below 2009, but due to a rate hike, these costs increased by over 17% … similar data for usage savings on water?? Natural Gas usage in City facilities during 2010 was 7.8% less than 2009, yielding a $9,131 savings Fuels usage is a little harder to calibrate, given that so many of these expenses are weather driven ( i.e., how often the grass needs to be cut given how wet or dry the summer months are, how often the snowplows run, etc.) These costs were reduced by 2% from 2009 to 2010.

17 Teller County Energy Advisory Board Highlights from Communities Plans TELLERENERGY.COM

18 POLICY STATEMENT / IMPLEMENTATION STRATEGY NO. 1A-4 – Encourage the full utilization of the environmental review mechanisms of the county, regional, state and federal agencies to ensure that all public and private development will not exceed the carrying capacity of the land or resource, degradation lands, or threaten the availability of the resource. POLICY STATEMENT / IMPLEMENTATION STRATEGY NO. 1C-31 – Encourage the identification of locations and construction techniques supportive of energy conservation. POLICY STATEMENT / IMPLEMENTATION STRATEGY NO. 1C-33 – Encourage the identification and use of alternative sources of energy, i.e. wind, water, solar, etc. From the Teller County Action Plan: TELLERENERGY.COM

19 OBJECTIVE NO. 2-B To identify methods for the minimization of pollution of land, air, soil, and water through proper location of industries, disposal sites, other activities, and planning to minimize inappropriate energy use and encourage conservation. POLICY STATEMENT / IMPLEMENTATION STRATEGY NO. 2B-45 – Encourage the support of and actively pursue programs to promote energy conservation and to encourage the use of alternative forms of energy, i.e. solar, water, geothermal, and wind sources. From the Teller County Action Plan: POLICY STATEMENT / IMPLEMENTATION STRATEGY NO. 2B-46 – Encourage the identification of methods to promote the efficient use and conservation of energy resources. TELLERENERGY.COM

20 COMMUNITY DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT PRINCIPLES Consider each building’s solar access and encourage energy conservation measures (e.g., use landscaping to provide summer shade and wind protection, minimize heat islands, construct energy- efficient structures). From the Woodland Park Comp Plan: COMMUNITY DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT PRINCIPLES Promote the use of rapidly renewable materials and regional materials in building construction and renovation to save resources and to support local businesses. SUSTAINABLE ENVIRONMENT ACTION 1.2.1 Advocate for and encourage energy-efficient technology (such as Energy Star appliances and fluorescent lighting) and the use of renewable energy (e.g., solar, geothermal and wind power) in public buildings, homes, businesses and for transportation. Evaluate the modification of building codes to require specific energy- efficient technologies. TELLERENERGY.COM

21 From the Woodland Park Comp Plan: SUSTAINABLE ENVIRONMENT ACTION 2.1.1 Develop an environmental sustainability outreach campaign that: - Uses a variety of communication tools to keep the public informed about the community’s progress and opportunities to become involved (such as the City website, mass e-mails and text messaging); - Promotes the community’s sustainability efforts at public events; - Creates partnerships among the City, Teller County, local media, interested organizations and residents to support and expand the campaign - Partners with Catamount Institute and local colleges to find volunteers to do free energy audits; and - Encourages City employees, residents and visitors to use alternative methods of transportation (walk, bike, carpool, etc.) SUSTAINABLE ENVIRONMENT OBJECTIVE 2.1 Create opportunities for community members to learn about and participate in efforts that promote environmental sustainability and encourage stewardship. SUSTAINABLE ENVIRONMENT ACTION 1.2.7 Educate residents about how to become more energy efficient TELLERENERGY.COM
