1 Transformational Energy Management Process ™

2 Program’s Primary Goals What it is …  A proven process that changes consumption behavior to reduce energy use It’s a lot like teaching and involves …  Assessment and Planning (Pre-testing and Developing a Plan)  Coordination and Communication (Teaching the Lesson, Supplying Information)  Leadership and Focus (Guiding the Process towards the Lesson’s Objective)  Measurement and Verification (Checking for Understanding and Post-testing) How implemented …  By auditing sites to identify energy-saving opportunities  By informing staff at all levels of energy-saving procedures  By helping staff to understand and move in a direction towards conservation  By maintaining a data base of bills/usage and auditing to ensure energy-saving habits are followed daily and are commonplace  By acting as a resource for energy awareness through Web site, and personal contact Transformational Energy Management

3 Program’s Primary Goals Eliminate Energy Waste …  Maintain energy policy and guidelines  Audit buildings during unoccupied times  Monitor building usage during occupied times  Track and analyze consumption for building efficiency  Use audits, software and data loggers to track waste Save Dollars …  Minimize consumption and demand charges  Monitor utility bills and meters for errors or overcharges  Evaluate usage trends for abnormalities  Investigate rebate and grant programs Maintain Occupied Area Comfort and Safety …  Ensure a comfortable and safe learning environment  Identify occupied periods in buildings Program’s Primary Goals

4 Measurement &Verification* We use an industry-standard software program, Energy CAP, to measure and verify SVUSD’s cost avoidance... Energy CAP meets International M&V Standards …  The U.S. Department of Energy headed an effort to develop a written standard that became the International Performance Measurement & Verification Protocol (U.S. DOE Document #DOE/GO ) To account for changes in energy usage, this standard prescribes that certain usage adjustments be made for …  Changes in weather  Added/removed mechanical systems and other energy consuming technology  Changes in building square footage, including the addition or removal of portables  Differences in the length of monthly billing cycles between the base period and current reporting period Cost Avoidance is determined by applying the current energy unit cost to the difference between the adjusted, estimated usage and actual usage for each meter * The practice of measuring energy savings and verifying cost avoidance. Measurement and Verification*

5 Changes to Our Energy Use/Costs* Energy Unit Costs (during reporting period, Sep ’08 thru Oct ‘09) …  Electrical+ 6%  Natural Gas- 26%  Water, Water & Sewer and Irrigation+ 10% Weather & Temperatures (compared to our base period) …  Winter ‘07-’08 was 47% colder than Winter ‘08-’09  Summer ‘08 was 5% cooler than Summer ’09 * Factors which we do not have control over or are outside the scope of the energy program. Changes to Our Energy Use/Costs

6 Changes to Our Energy Use/Costs* Adjustments to Date (during and since base year) …  New classroom building and parking structure additions at Trabuco Hills HS  New gym additions at La Paz, Los Alisos and Serrano  New MPR or MUB additions Glen Yermo, Olivewood and Valencia  Portable adjustments at De Portola, Del Cerro, Del Lago, Laguna Hills HS, Lomarena, Portola Hills, Trabuco, Trabuco Hills HS, Trabuco Mesa  Square footage adjustment at Portola Hills  Mechanical change-outs and modernization at Montevideo and San Joaquin  Summer school site usage changes from ‘08 to ‘09  New parking lot and lights at La Paz *Adjustments include square footage, lights, air/heating units and occupancy Changes to Our Energy Use (cont.)

7 Total Savings *Electricity – HVAC, lighting, equipment, anything plugged in *Natural Gas – HVAC (heating), pools, gas water heaters *Water – Pools, domestic, irrigation and sewer Breakdown in Utility Costs

8 Total Savings Our Energy Savings to Date: $1,448,340 * or 19.4% from Sep ‘08 thru Oct ‘09 (14 months) ITP (6 months): $365,202 or 12.8% PY1 (8 months): $1,033,827 or 23.8% * Includes $49,309 of special savings for SCE Summer Discount Plan Total Cost Avoidance

9 Electric Comparison (PY1 - 8 Months, Mar ’09 thru Oct ‘09) Average Unit Cost increased 6% Total Avoided Use = 4,273,588 kWh (kilowatt-hours) Expected Costs minus Actual Costs = $910,751 (savings) Baseline Actual Expected BaselineActualExpected Electricity Comparison (PY months, Mar ‘09 – Oct ‘09)

10 Natural Gas Comparison (PY1 - 8 Months, Mar ’09 thru Oct ‘09) Average Unit Cost decreased 26% Total Avoided Use = 11,794 therms Expected Costs minus Actual Costs = $14,813 (savings) Baseline Actual Expected Baseline Actual Expected Natural Gas Comparison (PY months, Mar ‘09 – Oct ‘09)

11 Water Comparison* (PY1 - 8 Months, Mar ’09 thru Oct ‘09) Average Unit Cost increased 10% Total Avoided Use = 35,113 KGal (thousands of gallons) Expected Costs minus Actual Costs = $108,264 (savings) * Includes water, water & sewer, and irrigation. Baseline Actual Expected Baseline Actual Expected Water Comparison (PY months, Mar ‘09 – Oct ‘09) Baseline Actual Expected

12 Month-to-Month Avoided Expense Mar 09 - Start of Performance Year #1Sep ‘08 - Start of Initial Training Period Month-to-Month Avoided Costs

13 Cumulative Savings (PY1 - 8 Months, Mar ’09 thru Oct ’09) Initial Training Period (ITP)Performance Year #1 (PY1) Cumulative Avoided Costs

14 Environmental Benefits Per the EPA, the following levels of Greenhouse Gas Emissions are produced by our energy suppliers: pounds of carbon dioxide per kilowatt-hour (kWh) of Electricity 11.7 pounds of carbon dioxide per therm of Natural Gas During the past 14 months, SVUSD has saved … 6,057,703 kWh of Electricity 32,339 therms of Natural Gas These savings are equal to … 2,130 Metric Tons of carbon dioxide emissions being prevented, or 382 Automobiles being removed from the highways annually, or 54,491 Tree Seedlings planted and grown for 10-years. Environmental Benefits

15 In Closing … Our goals for the next 6 months are to:  Strive to maintain overall savings at or above 20%  Increase water conservation efforts  Focus on improving daily shutdowns, district wide  Submit high performing schools for Energy Star recognition  Increase awareness and visibility of the Energy Program in the community The success of our Energy Conservation Program is due to the participation of our custodians, faculty, kitchen staff and administration. A special thanks to…  Jim Simone and the entire maintenance staff  Dan Dutcher and Jeff Lueskow for their outstanding EMS support  Kurt Labbe, for his graphic design support  Our principals, especially Facilities Assistant Principals Jan Carroll and Dave Elkins for their ongoing efforts at the site level  Our teachers, who go above and beyond to help us conserve  Dr. Fish and Steve McMahon, for their leadership and support In Closing …
