  4. 80th Texas Legislature - 2007 HB3693 (Summary by SECO) SECTION 1 GOAL TO REDUCE CONSUMPTION OF ELECTRIC ENERGY The board of trustees of a school district shall establish a goal to reduce the school district's annual electric consumption by five percent each state fiscal year for six years beginning September 1, 2007. SECTION 2 EFFICIENT LIGHT BULBS IN INSTRUCTIONAL FACILITIES School districts shall purchase for use in each type of light fixture in an instructional facility the commercially available model of light bulb that: (1) uses the fewest watts for the necessary luminous flux or light output; (2) is compatible with the light fixture; and (3) is the most cost-effective, considering the factors described by Subdivisions (1) and (2). SECTION 8 REQUIRED PUBLICATION AND REPORTING BY GOVERNMENTAL ENTITIES A governmental entity responsible for payments for electric, water, or natural gas utility services shall record in an electronic repository the governmental entity's metered amount of electricity, water, or natural gas consumed for which it is responsible to pay and the aggregate costs for those utility services. The governmental entity shall report the recorded information on a publicly accessible Internet website with an interface designed for ease of navigation if available, or at another publicly accessible location. SECTION 24 CREDIT FOR SURPLUS SOLAR GENERATION BY PUBLIC SCHOOLS An electric utility or retail electric provider shall provide for net metering and contract with an independent school district.

  5. House Bill 3693 Key Provisions: • ESTABLISH a Goal • SECTION 1 - GOAL TO REDUCE CONSUMPTION OF ELECTRIC ENERGY • RECORD monthly utility consumption and REPORT this information on a publicly accessible website. • SECTION 8 - REQUIRED PUBLICATION AND REPORTING BY GOVERNMENTAL ENTITIES

  6. SECTION 8 REQUIRED PUBLICATION AND REPORTING BY GOVERNMENTAL ENTITIES Government Code, Subtitle F, Title 10, Chapter 2264: • Recording and Reporting of Electricity, Water and Natural Gas Consumption by Governmental Entities • Definition of Governmental Entity: • “A board, commission, or department of the state or a political subdivision of the state, including a municipality, a county, or any kind of district; or…” • Slide Source: Jim Brown, ESA Energy Systems Associates

  7. SECTION 8 REQUIRED PUBLICATION AND REPORTING BY GOVERNMENTAL ENTITIES Record and Report Utility Data • “…shall RECORD in an electronic repository the governmental entity’s metered amount of electricity, water or natural gas consumed for which it is responsible to pay and the aggregate costs for those utility services. • “…shall REPORT the recorded information on a publicly accessible Internet website with an interface designed for ease of navigation if available, or at another publicly accessible location.” • Slide Source: Jim Brown, ESA Energy Systems Associates

  8. SECTION 8 REQUIRED PUBLICATION AND REPORTING BY GOVERNMENTAL ENTITIES Record and Report Utility Data • “How do I “report” it: • An easy way is to record the data on a program such as Microsoft Excel, then upload the worksheet to your website. • Generate a report from you utility management system and export to Excel or into a “pdf” file. • Then add the file to your FTP site (or online website server), then create a hyperlink to the file on the website you want to use for posting it. • Slide Source: Jim Brown, ESA Energy Systems Associates

  11. House Bill 3693 Key Provisions: • ESTABLISH a Goal • SECTION 1 - GOAL TO REDUCE CONSUMPTION OF ELECTRIC ENERGY • RECORD monthly utility consumption and REPORT this information on a publicly accessible website. • SECTION 8 - REQUIRED PUBLICATION AND REPORTING BY GOVERNMENTAL ENTITIES

  12. SECTION 1 GOAL TO REDUCE CONSUMPTION OF ELECTRIC ENERGY Education Code Amendment Subchapter Z, Chapter 44, Section 44.902: • Establish a Goal • The board of trustees of a school district shall establish a goal to reduce the school district’s annual electric consumption by 5% each state fiscal year for 6 years beginning September 1, 2007. • Slide Source: Jim Brown, ESA Energy Systems Associates

  13. SECTION 1 GOAL TO REDUCE CONSUMPTION OF ELECTRIC ENERGY Two interpretations: 1 – Use 2006-07 School Year as a Base Year and try to cut 30% by August 2013. 2 – Suggested (not Mandated) Method • Use 2006-07 School Year as Base Year • Create Plan of Action for Improved Efficiency Implementation • Annually Re-Calculate Base Year in light of Actual Electric Consumption, Cooling Degree Days (CDD) and District Student Population Growth • Compare Electric kWh/sf or kWh/student • Slide Source: Jim Brown, ESA Energy Systems Associates

  14. SECTION 1 GOAL TO REDUCE CONSUMPTION OF ELECTRIC ENERGY • Current Cooling Degree Day (CDD) information may be found at: http://www.cpc.necp.noaa.gov/products/predictions/experimental/ddtest/ddcurstats.txt • Slide Source: Jim Brown, ESA Energy Systems Associates

  15. SECTION 1 GOAL TO REDUCE CONSUMPTION OF ELECTRIC ENERGY • Example Calculation: 2006-07 1,000,000 kWh / 1,000,000 sf = 1 kWh/sf 2007-08 [1,400,000 kWh Current Year / (1.2 % students x 1.05 % CDD)] / 1,200,000 sf = 0.926 kWh / sf • Slide Source: Jim Brown, ESA Energy Systems Associates

  16. SECTION 1 GOAL TO REDUCE CONSUMPTION OF ELECTRIC ENERGY Reaching the Goal • Evaluation • Find inefficient facilities & usage issues • Validation • Find billings errors • Motivation • Circulate data to those within the facilities • Setup training seminars for staff and faculty • Conservation • Implement a program to save energy & $ • Slide Source: Jim Brown, ESA Energy Systems Associates

  20. SECTION 1 GOAL TO REDUCE CONSUMPTION OF ELECTRIC ENERGY Resources to Reach the Goal • Utility Management System – Utility Bill Auditing • Talk to your Peers (what are other schools doing) • Request a SECO Audit • Engineered Projects • Performance Contract • Implement Behavioral Measures (Operational) • Maintenance & Preventive Maintenance • Students and Faculty Incentives • Slide Source: Jim Brown, ESA Energy Systems Associates

  21. Best Practices Guidebook • This Best Practices Guidebook was funded by a grant from and prepared for the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy http://www.ase.org/uploaded_files/greenschools/School%20Energy%20Guidebook_9-04.pdf

  22. Economic Justification of Analyzing Utilities • Dept. of Energy states 10-15% reduction in costs can be found with good analysis and management • Rebuild America states 5% reduction in costs • Accountability; defend against outsiders if you wish to keep analysis and management internal • Look professional to your management and your building occupants!

  23. Best Practices Guidebook • Offers strategies for maintaining facilities, but also opportunities for reducing energy costs and increasing energy efficiency at existing schools • Provides detailed and practical guidance on how school districts can plan and implement enhancements to their current O&M programs to successfully maintain facilities while also reducing energy costs up to 20% • Most energy management strategies detailed entail limited capital costs and produce rapid paybacks, in most cases, of less than two years • Intended for school district facilities management staff and school business staff who have the authority to implement such a program. • School-based maintenance and custodial managers may also use this resource to help them identify and understand program details and to see the contribution they can make to the new O&M effort.

  24. Best Practices Guidebook There are a variety of energy-efficient M&O program options available, including: 1) Energy Tracking & Accounting 2) Voluntary Energy Awareness 3) Performance Contract 4) Quick and Low-Cost Strategies And include the following: • defining a district-wide energy policy • developing a program staff and budget • recognizing and monitoring staff members

  25. Best Practices Guidebook • The M&O program and program managers must be visible to Superintendent, School Boards, and other staff, program objectives and progress should be reported periodically • Energy savings are not immediate, but develop over time • Distribution of school-specific information to building staff is essential • Problems must be recognized and "tweaks" made to ensure success of your program • External support is vital • Detailed energy policy should provide guidelines for M&O program and define broad cost and performance objectives You should be cognizant of these six critical factors when implementing your new energy-efficient program:

  26. There’s Gold in Those Energy Bills! Correcting Utility Bill Mistakes What are some things that can go wrong and what causes it? • Meter and/or Meter Reading Problems – Malfunctions, inability to reach meter • Calculation Errors – new systems with different formats • Wrong Rates – utilities cannot always spot-check for best rates against a bill Source: FASBO Education Energy Managers

  27. Audit Your Data For “Red Flags”

  28. Other billing errors or meter problems
