3 Utilities of Concern Water Water Sewer Sewer Electrical Electrical Heating systems Heating systems Natural gas Natural gas Petroleum Petroleum Electrical Electrical

4 Water Usage KGALS/Year Down 34% Since 02/03

5 Makeup Feedwater KGALS/Year Down 40.5% Since 02/03

6 Savings Makeup feed water is heated from 50 degrees to 331 degrees to make 90# steam. Makeup feed water is heated from 50 degrees to 331 degrees to make 90# steam. Each gallon of water saved equals 2343 BTU’s that are not required. From 02-03, makeup feed use has decreased by 571 KGAL (= 1,337,232 BTU = 9,035 GALS per year = $13,372/year. From 02-03, makeup feed use has decreased by 571 KGAL (= 1,337,232 BTU = 9,035 GALS per year = $13,372/year. Overall 40.5% reduction in makeup feed= water that is not “heated, treated and pumped” into the ground.

7 Electrical Consumption All campus buildings are metered All campus buildings are metered Campus has its own substation Campus has its own substation We pay higher rates during peak load periods We pay higher rates during peak load periods Normally 10 AM – 2 PM Normally 10 AM – 2 PM Major electrical conservation measures have been enacted: Major electrical conservation measures have been enacted: Retrofitting with fluorescent bulbs Retrofitting with fluorescent bulbs HVAC retrofits HVAC retrofits Energy management system Energy management system Conversion to gas cooking Conversion to gas cooking Auto shutdowns of computer lab screens Auto shutdowns of computer lab screens

8 “Good News/Bad News” Every year, SUNY adds the equivalent of a SUNY Geneseo in electrical load to the grid. Every year, SUNY adds the equivalent of a SUNY Geneseo in electrical load to the grid. Despite the significant measures taken, campus electrical loading has not dramatically decreased Despite the significant measures taken, campus electrical loading has not dramatically decreased Field House, Higgins Hall Field House, Higgins Hall Track lights Track lights

9 “Good News, Bad News” (in the “it all adds up” category) Computers Computers Site lighting Site lighting Parking (lighting, storm water runoff) Parking (lighting, storm water runoff) In 1991, there were 1983 parking stalls. Today there are In 1991, there were 1983 parking stalls.

13 Heating Systems Most buildings heated from the central plant (~Higgins, Hunt, MOC, Fitzelle, Bugbee) Most buildings heated from the central plant (~Higgins, Hunt, MOC, Fitzelle, Bugbee) Campus has a “dual fuel” system Campus has a “dual fuel” system We “play the market” We “play the market” “Interruptible rate” on natural gas “Interruptible rate” on natural gas 430,000 + GAL on site storage of #6 430,000 + GAL on site storage of #6 These tanks are re-filled in JUN/JUL These tanks are re-filled in JUN/JUL

14 SUNY Wide Measures SUNY Oneonta ranks 9 th out of 32 campuses in EBTU/OSF fuel usage (includes Ag and Tech Colleges with barns, etc.) SUNY Oneonta ranks 9 th out of 32 campuses in EBTU/OSF fuel usage (includes Ag and Tech Colleges with barns, etc.) SUNY Oneonta has reduced EBTU/SF consumption by % since FY 89/90. SUNY Oneonta has reduced EBTU/SF consumption by % since FY 89/90.

15 Fuel Usage by “Degree Day” and Gallon Equivalent/Degree Day Down 3% Since 02/03

16 Fuel Usage by FTE Down 8.6%
