Branford Board of Education Conservation Report Efforts and Results 2001-Present Mark Deming Facilities Director Branford Board of Education November 19, 2007
Purpose The following slides are a culmination of our past and current efforts to conserve fossil fuels and reduce our electrical consumption. In 2001 we set goals to reduce our energy consumption by 20% Total of $120, in capital cost to date
Walsh Intermediate HVAC renovation scope Replace 31 year old equipment PACT agreement with Trane 2 new boilers, with DHW New 600 ton centrifugal chiller New cooling tower Motor replacements/New VFD’s New filter Racks New Tracer Summit Energy Mgt System
Walsh Intermediate HVAC Results Electric 2001 used 2,780,160 KWH 2006 used 1,384,320 KWH 2001 electrical costs $235, electrical costs $222, KWH cost $ KWH cost $
Walsh Intermediate HVAC Results Oil 2001 used 80,472 Gallons 2006 used 46,859 Gallons 2001 Fuel oil costs $80, per gallon cost $ Fuel oil costs $89, per gallon cost $1.915
Annual Cost Avoidance at WIS Average Heating Season before HVAC renovation was 80,000 gallons Average Heating Season since HVAC renovation is 38,500 gallons Annual avg Savings in Gallons 41,500 Cost Avoidance at 2007 prices $549, fuel price calculated at $2.65 per gallon Based on past five heating seasons
Walsh Intermediate Energy Star During Retro-commissioning audit of WIS during summer of 2007 it was found that the efforts and results of the WIS heating and cooling renovation, lighting retrofit program made WIS eligible for an “Energy Star Rating” Received in January 2008 scoring 100 of a possible 100.
Branford High School Tri-Generation Installation of Micro-Turbines and Absorption chiller to produce electricity, utilize the waste heat to heat the school in the winter months and chilled water for cooling in the summer months. Project completed with commissioning scheduled for February 28, k sq ft facility
On Site Power Generation CCHP (Combined Cooling / Heating and Power) 4 Micro Turbines 1 Absorption Chiller Net Generation capacity 227kW Net Heating capacity 1,313,000 BTU Heating and Domestic Hot Water Net Cooling capacity tons
Projected Benefits of Tri-Generation Provides the Town with a standalone power system for use as a shelter in the event of electrical power outage. Will provide small amount of savings (40k- 80k) while paying for equipment and additional savings once equipment is paid for. Reduce Town of Branford’s Carbon footprint by over 40 tons.
Economic Factors Considered Renewable energy credits Energy efficiency credits No capital costs Utility Incentives (Natural Gas distribution charges waived) DPUC grant
Other Energy Initiatives Municipal Lighting Program (CEEF) Bon Aqua treatment (magnetic water treatment) Retro Commissioning program Expanded Tracer Summit BAS to other schools Demand response participation Solar Roofing (In Process) Dual Fuel
District Overview High School 1100 students Intermediate School 1200 students 3 Elementary Schools 800 students 3 additional buildings, preschool, SACC, Special Ed and Administrative
Results of Conservation Work District Wide Oil 2001 Consumption at 2006 cost $432, Consumption at 2006 cost $324, Annual Cost Avoidance $107, Life Cycle Savings $1,619, Life Cycle of 15 years Oil savings based on today’s cost $2.65
Results of Conservation Work Electric 2001 Consumption at 2006 cost $1,131, Consumption at 2006 cost $767, Annual cost Avoidance $363, Life Cycle Savings $5,457, Life Cycle of 15 years
Budget Impact Electric 2001 BOE Electrical Cost $650, BOE Electrical Cost $792,416 Due to conservation efforts Electrical cost increases have only impacted our budget by 22% over 6 years or just over 3.6% annually Without these efforts we would be budgeting $1,300,342. for electric instead of the current budget of $792,416.
Budget Impact Oil 2001 Budgeted 210,000 gallons of fuel at $ 0.88 or $184, Budgeted 140,000 gallons of fuel at approx $2.37 or $355, Without these efforts we would have had to budget $497,700. Since 2001 oil costs have increased more than 169%.
