1 Sustainability in Waupun Continuing the goal of 25% renewable energy by 2025 Renee Henning 2012 Wisconsin Sustainability Intern Program

2 Projects Immediately Implemented Energy Miser Museum Boiler Pipes City Hall Attic Insulation Museum Attic Insulation Building Light Upgrade Street and Park Light Upgrade Greenhouse Gas Reduction

3 Turn Down City Hall Break Room Water Heater The 6 gallon water heater in the break room was heating water to 140 °F. Turned down to 120 °F Conserve 6-10% of water heating costs (EPA) Prevent burns

4 Unplug Appliances Except for refrigerators, unplug energy consumers that are not being used. They may consume energy even when turned off.

5 Project Priority by Payback

6 Energy Miser Reduces electrical use Uses Passive Infrared Occupancy Sensor to turn off Monitors ambient temperature to ensure cold product Reduces compressor cycles to prolong life of machine In unoccupied 90 °F test chamber, reduced electricity by nearly 50% while not affecting drink temperature Photo courtesy of EnergyMiserStore.com

8 Energy Miser Payback Device Cost Annual Cost Savings at $.10/kW FOE * Incentive Payback in Years Yearly Savings for 8 machines Minimal savings with load manager$184$64.24$601.9$ with load manager and delamping$184$148.92$600.8$1, Average savings with load manager$184$96.36$601.3$ with load manager and delamping$184$163.52$600.8$1, There are 7 soda machines at parks and 1 at city hall The total cost is $992 * Focus on Energy

9 Museum Boiler Pipe Insulation Heat from the steam conducts onto the pipe and then conducts into the surrounding air Insulation will keep the heat in the steam Heat lost from the pipe can overheat an area, and waste energy Heat may not reach where it is needed because it dissipates into the air Insulation can reduce the energy lost from the system by 90% 2

10 Museum Boiler Pipe Insulation The pipes are not insulated

11 Museum Boiler Pipe Insulation Boiler room pipes are patched in all cases Yearly savings based on reduced insulating values and smaller pipes on average Added insulationCost FOE * Incentive Yearly SavingsPayback 1" main pipes$2,067$735$1, " main pipes$2,407$735$1, " main pipes and runouts$2,919$1,178$1, " main pipes and 1" runouts$3,259$1,178$1, * Focus on Energy

12 Insulate City Hall and Museum Attic EPA estimates that 20% of heating and cooling costs, or 10% of the electrical costs, can be saved through sealing and insulating a typical house 1.

13 City Hall Attic Insulation City Hall has no insulation

14 City Hall Attic Insulation Using Average Cost of Bids Using Lowest Bid Cost Additional R Total R Cost FOE * Incentive Savings per Year Payback in Years Payback after Incentive in Years 40 $5,000.00$1,186$1, $6,221.67$1,213$2, $7,525.00$1,232$2, Additional R Total R Cost FOE * Incentive Savings per Year Payback in Years Payback after Incentive in Years 40 $3,500$1,186$1, $4,340$1,213$2, $5,375$1,232$2, * Focus on Energy

15 Museum Attic Insulation Museum has initial insulation of R9 due to its condition

18 Alliant Shared Savings Program A loan that is paid back with the energy savings over a maximum of 5 years 3% Administration Fee Can combine the City Hall and Museum projects for a larger contract amount It can be paid off early with no penalty Allows “shared savings” when the loan payment is less than the energy savings
