1 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Understanding what Idahoans think about Energy Codes PRESENTER Sharon Grant, Eco Edge April 30, Idaho Homeowner Energy Code Survey

2 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N THANK YOU 2 Jennifer Pope, Office of Energy Resources David Eberle, Boise State University Rebecca Elmore-Yalch, Northwest Research Group, LLC Nathan Wiggin, Northwest Research Group, LLC The Team

3 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N Notable  Top drivers for supporting energy codes include lower monthly costs and a belief that they have a right to a new home purchase that meets energy standards.  Idahoans agree that the State should adopt a state energy code consistent with national standards. However, less than half say that they trust the State to adopt the right energy codes.  A payback period of 7 years is acceptable. 3

4 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N 4  Objectives  Methodology  Results  Lessons Learned TODAY’S AGENDA

5 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N OBJECTIVES Determine if Idahoans value energy efficiency Establish a priority of value Determine if Idaho homeowners value statewide standards for energy efficiency Determine how much Idaho homeowners are willing to pay for energy efficiency

6 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N METHODOLOGY Random Digit Dial surveys 13 minutes each 30% wireless Homeowners and renters, over age 18.

7 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N METHODOLOGY 7

8 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N METHODOLOGY  Pre-tested n=30 respondents  ISO 20252:2012 Market Research Standards  December 12-December 22, 2013  Demographics monitored 8 +/- 4% variance 95% confidence level

9 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N 9 RESULTS Home Energy Consumption Attitudes towards Energy Codes Key Drivers Idaho Energy Standards Willingness to Pay Energy Consumption Attitudes Education / Sources of Information

10 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N 65% favor energy codes 10

11 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N 11 Key Drivers Financial Considerations Individual Attitudes Base: Random selection respondents (weighted n= / unweighted n=300) Arrows indicate statistically significant difference at 95% confidence level Bolding indicates statistically significant difference at 90% confidence level Northwest Research Group, February 2014

12 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N 12 Key Drivers Individual Attitudes Base: All respondents (n=600) Arrows indicate statistically significant difference at 95% confidence level Bolding indicates statistically significant difference at 90% confidence level Northwest Research Group, February 2014

13 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N 13 Attitudes toward Energy Codes Idahoans strongly agree that energy efficient homes have a higher resale value and also increase the purchase price of a home. Arrows indicate statistically significant difference at 95% confidence level Bolding indicates statistically significant difference at 90% confidence level Northwest Research Group, February 2014 Base: Random selection respondents (weighted n= / unweighted n=300)

14 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N 14 Idaho Energy Standards Nearly 2 out of 3 Idahoans agree that the State should adopt a state energy code consistent with national standards; however, less than half say that they trust the State to adopt the right energy codes. Arrows indicate statistically significant difference at 95% confidence level Bolding indicates statistically significant difference at 90% confidence level Northwest Research Group, February 2014 Base: All respondents (n=600)

15 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N 15 Willingness to Pay Idahoans appear to be willing to pay as much as $10 per month in additional rent or mortgage costs to save $16 per month on energy bills. Those living in Southwest Idaho are willing to pay more per month in rent or mortgage costs to save money on energy while those living in Northern Idaho are willing to pay less. $10 payment to save $16 per month Idahoans appear to be willing to accept a payback period of about 7 years to build a more energy-efficient home. 7 year simple payback

16 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N 16 Home Energy Consumption Arrows indicate statistically significant difference at 95% confidence level Bolding indicates statistically significant difference at 90% confidence level Northwest Research Group, February 2014 Nearly 4 out of 5 Idahoans feel their home is at least somewhat energy efficient. Base: All respondents (n=600)

17 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N 17 Energy Consumption Attitudes More than three quarters of respondents (77%) agree that they can make a real impact if everyone conserves energy. Base: All respondents (n=600) Arrows indicate statistically significant difference at 95% confidence level Bolding indicates statistically significant difference at 90% confidence level Northwest Research Group, February 2014

18 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N 18 Disagreement with Energy Codes

19 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N 19 Education / Sources of Information Base: All respondents (n=600) Just under half of the respondents are interested in learning how their homes compare to others. Arrows indicate statistically significant difference at 95% confidence level Bolding indicates statistically significant difference at 90% confidence level Northwest Research Group, February 2014

20 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N 20 Education / Sources of Information The most believable information sources would be local people such as an architect, a local building inspector, or their local utility. Arrows indicate statistically significant difference at 95% confidence level Bolding indicates statistically significant difference at 90% confidence level Northwest Research Group, February 2014 Base: All respondents (n=600)

21 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N LESSONS LEARNED 21  Idahoans perceive their homes as energy efficient but need education on what makes it energy efficient.  Emphasize financials such as resale value and monthly savings.  Don’t step on rights; recognize them.  Idahoans agree that Idaho should adopt a state energy code consistent with national standards.  Communicate how much it will cost and how much it will save within a 7 year payback.

22 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N NEXT STEPS Revise the marketing and outreach plan for Idaho, reflecting the 2013 survey results. 2. Explore opportunities to share the results. 3. Apply the insights gained from the survey results and make an impact in Idaho and beyond.

23 B O N N E V I L L E P O W E R A D M I N I S T R A T I O N ADDITIONAL OPPORTUNITIES Future presentations of results (Eco Edge at EEBA Green Building Conference and Idaho Building Code Board). 2. Other data analysis-GIS maps etc. 3. Results and documents to be made available on and future energy publications. Questions? Sharon Grant
