Attachment 2 - Example Water & Energy Savings Excel Spreadsheet http://www.water.ca.gov/waterenergygrant/docs/ Attachment2_Worksheet.xlsx
Consider this a $1.12 million toilet rebate program, drip irrigation program, or a leak repair project. Step 1: The applicant determines the water use prior to program implementation to be 226 MG/year. Step 2: The applicant approximates the water use after program implementation to be 113 MG/year. Step 3 & 4: All savings will be from cold water. As a result there will be no hot water savings. Step 5: The applicant determines a useful life of 20 years from available product model information. Attachment 2 Proposal A Project #1 (Cold Water)
Step 6: The water-users in the system do not consume imported water. Step 7: The applicant sums the EI values for water distribution (1 kWh/700 gallons) + wastewater treatment (1 kWh/700 gallons), for a total of 2 kWh/700 gallons. This converts to 2,857 kWh/MG. Step 8: The total output emission in CAMX sub- region (EPA eGRID, 2014) is 0.278 kg CO 2 e/kWh Step 9: The water-users in the system do not consume imported water. Step 10: The applicant determines no EE/RE savings Attachment 2 Proposal A Project #1 (Cold Water) cont.
Consider this project a $2 million comprehensive conservation program. Step 1: The applicant determines the water use prior to program implementation to be 180,638 MG/year. Step 2: The applicant approximates the water use after program implementation to be 178,832 MG/year. Step 3 & 4: From water savings (1,806 MG/year) the applicant researches and finds that 15% (271 MG/year) is from hot water uses. In addition, it is determined the hot water uses are roughly evenly split between electric (135 MG/year) and natural gas (136 MG/year). Step 5: The applicant determines a useful life of 10 years from available product model information. Attachment 2 Proposal B Project #1
Step 6: The applicant verifies that 50% of system’s total water supply is made up of imported water Step 7: The applicant researches and determines the EI value is the sum of treatment (61 kWh/AF) + distribution (196 kWh/AF) + wastewater collection and treatment (1284 kWh/AF) = 1541 kWh/AF = 4,731 kWh/MG* Step 8: The total output emission in CAMX sub-region (EPA eGRID, 2014) is 0.278 kg CO 2 e/kWh Step 9: From Table 6 (PSP), the applicant concludes that the imported EI value is 1,976 kWh/AF = 6,066 kWh/MG** Step 10: The applicant determines no EE/RE savings * Energy Intensity (EI) values are determined by the energy consumed divided by the corresponding volume of water consumed over one year. Applicants are encouraged to use system specific values. ** Table 6 provides the EI values for incremental energy consumption of the SWP and are from the upstream station to the local station. In the absence of actual data, find the total imported EI value in Step 9 by summing the upstream station(s) together with the local station values found in Table 6. Attachment 2 Proposal B Project #1 (Hot Water) cont.
Consider this project a $20,000 clothes washer rebate program (100 units). Step 1: The applicant determines the water use prior to program implementation to be 0.69 MG/year. Step 2: The applicant approximates the water use after program implementation to be 0.45 MG/year. Step 3 & 4: From water savings (0.24 MG/year) the applicant researches and finds that 50% (0.12 MG/year) is from hot water uses. In addition, it is determined the electric hot water use is 1/3 (0.04 MG/year) and natural gas use is 2/3 (0.08 MG/year). Step 5: The applicant determines a useful life of 11.25 years from available product model information. Attachment 2 Proposal B Project #2 (Hot Water)
Step 6: The applicant verifies that 50% of system’s total water supply is made up of imported water Step 7: The applicant researches and determines the regional EI value is the sum of treatment (61 kWh/AF) + distribution (196 kWh/AF) + wastewater collection and treatment (1284 kWh/AF) = 1541 kWh/AF = 4,731 kWh/MG* Step 8: The total output emission in CAMX sub- region (EPA eGRID, 2014) is 0.278 kg CO 2 e/kWh Step 9: From Table 6 (PSP), the applicant concludes that the imported EI value is 1,976 kWh/AF = 6,066 kWh/MG** Step 10: The applicant determines the EE/RE savings to be 6,750 kWh/year Attachment 2 Proposal B Project #2 (Hot Water) cont.
