2 Sustainability Committee Presidents’ Climate Commitment ~ By January 15, 2011 : Climate Action Plan ~ ~ Dmitry Liapitch '10 ~ Caroline Bates '10 ~ Danine Dibble ~ Steve Gilchrist ~ Tom Gunderson ~ ~ Milene Morfei ~ Niamh O'Leary ~ Ann Rollo ~ Elly Ventura ~ Sharon Vitello '12 ~ Includes a target date and interim milestones for achieving climate neutrality The American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment is a high-visibility effort to make campuses more sustainable and address global warming by garnering institutional commitments to reduce and ultimately neutralize greenhouse gas emissions on campus and to accelerate the research and educational efforts of higher education… ~ Measure Greenhouse Gas Emissions ~ O’ Brian & Gere – Thermal Energy Audit & Emissions Analysis ~ Select tangible actions to be completed ~ While climate action plan is being developed (within two years.)

3 Wells College Energy Usage Data Analysis of COST & ENERGY USAGE ~ LEACH - Main 14 buildings on Wells Campus ~ POWER HOUSE – 7 inferior energy consuming buildings Cost & Energy Reduction Strategies Sustainability & Wells College ~ Energy Sources & Emissions ~ Motion Sensor Installations ~ Efficient Light Installations ~ SAVING & PROFIT ~ Potential Photovoltaic System The Future of Wells College ~ Presidents’ Climate Commitment

4 Wells College Electric Meters Additional Information LEACH – 14 Buildings ~ Barler ~ Bellinzoni ~ Cambell ~ Dining Hall ~ Dogde ~ Glen Park ~ Golf Course ~ Macmillian ~ Main Building ~ Stratton Science Building ~ Long Library ~ Weld ~ Leach ~ Schwartz Athletic Center ~ Athletic Fields ~ POWER HOUSE – 7 Buildings Boathouse ~ Cleveland ~ Maintenance ~ Morgan~ Pettibone ~ Smith (Sommer Center) ~ Zabriskie AURORA – Several Buildings ~ Aurora Inn ~ Bet the Farm ~ Dories ~ Fargo ~ Market ~ Apartments ~ Over 20 Houses ~ Each year starts in July and ends in June. ( means July 2008 – June 2009) ~ Aurora will NOT be included in the analysis Energy Usage Analysis ~ Energy Usage Information Was Provided by Tom Gunderson

5 ~ Average spent on LEACH electric bill from = $30, a month Monthly Energy Usage for LEACH Buildings

6 LEACH Energy Usage & Cost for ~ Clearly Energy Usage & Cost is Annually Increasing!

7 POWER HOUSE Cost & Usage for Boathouse ~ Cleveland ~ Maintenance ~ Morgan ~ Pettibone ~ Smith (Sommer Center) ~ Zabriskie Boathouse ~ Cleveland ~ Maintenance ~ Morgan ~ Pettibone ~ Smith (Sommer Center) ~ Zabriskie ~ Increase due to use of the Zabriskie and additional generator!

8 ~ Currently Wells College Has Over 600 Students Energy & Cost Increase For Additional Students ~ If 600 students were responsible for half of the energy usage: Wells Students Wells Students Energy Usage (kWh) Students 4,159,296$483, Per Student 3,466$ Students 5,545,728$644, ~ Each student uses approximately 3,466 kWh of energy! ~ If Wells increases its size to 800 students, The annual energy bill will increase approximately $161,191!

9 Energy Reduction Strategies Power Usage Comparison (Watts) IncandescentCFLLED ~ CFLs are 75% more efficient ~ ~ CFLs, on average, 9 time life span ~ ~ LEDs are 90% more efficient ~ ~ LEDs can last up to 25 times~ ~ CFLs contain mercury vapor ~ ~ LEDs are currently very expensive ~

10 Energy Reduction Strategies Comparison for 120 Outdoor Light Installations for 12 Hour Day Type HP Sodium CFLLED Watt Usage Cost Per Light $14.00$12.00$ Energy (kWh) Daily Cost $25.06$7.02$4.18 Annual Cost $9,145.44$2,560.72$1, Annual Savings 0$6,584.72$7, Light Cost $1,680.00$1,440.00$12, st Year Savings 0$5, $4, ~ There will be immediate savings with CFLs! ~ LEDs will save more money in the long run!

11 Energy Reduction Strategies Comparison for 120 Light Installations for a 12 Hour Day Type HP Sodium CFLLED Watt Usage Cost Per Light $0.50$3.00$10.00 Energy (kWh) Daily Cost $10.02$2.51$1.00 Annual Cost $3,658.18$914.54$ Annual Savings 0$2,743.63$3, Light Cost $60.00$360.00$1, st Year Savings 0$2,383.63$2, ~ There will be immediate savings with simple changes!

13 Sustainability Committee Presidents’ Climate Commitment ~ By January 15, 2011 : Climate Action Plan ~ ~ Dmitry Liapitch '10 ~ Caroline Bates '10 ~ Danine Dibble ~ Steve Gilchrist ~ Tom Gunderson ~ ~ Milene Morfei ~ Niamh O'Leary ~ Ann Rollo ~ Elly Ventura ~ Sharon Vitello '12 ~ Includes a target date and interim milestones for achieving climate neutrality The American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment is a high-visibility effort to make campuses more sustainable and address global warming by garnering institutional commitments to reduce and ultimately neutralize greenhouse gas emissions on campus and to accelerate the research and educational efforts of higher education… ~ Measure Greenhouse Gas Emissions ~ O’ Brian & Gere – Thermal Energy Audit & Emissions Analysis ~ Select tangible actions to be completed ~ While climate action plan is being developed (within two years.)

14 ~ One of the potential requirements that can be fulfilled for the President’s Climate Commitment is to ensure that at 15% of our energy comes from a renewable source. Commitment is to ensure that at 15% of our energy comes from a renewable source. ~ If 15% of our energy came from Solar energy, for example, it would fulfill all of the energy needs for the POWER HOUSE buildings, allowing for over 30% of of the energy needs for the POWER HOUSE buildings, allowing for over 30% of Wells College buildings to be powered by a renewable energy source! Wells College buildings to be powered by a renewable energy source!

15 ~ According to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) Irradiance Data, Upstate New York receives approximately 4 hours of daily prime sunlight from Upstate New York receives approximately 4 hours of daily prime sunlight from (10kW Photovoltaic System will generate 40kWh a day, kWh annually) ~ To fulfill 15% of Wells College energy usage requires a 428 kW system. (428 kW * 4 hrs* 365 days) = kWh ~ Assuming that it costs $8 a Watt (Renovus Price), A 428 kW system would cost approximately $3,424,000 before any incentives. Potential Solar System for 15% of Wells Energy Usage ~ NYSERDA Incentives can provide up to 40% of initial investment
