  1. Energy Efficiency Victoria Adams Stephanie Cogswell Daureen Lingley Emily Werner

  2. Energy Efficiency Topics 1 Designing & Remodeling 2 Energy Efficient Mortgages 3 Incentives & Rebates 4 Appliances & Home Electronics Page 2

  3. Designing & Remodeling a Home • Passive Solar • Cool Roofs • Whole-House Design • Ultra-Efficient Homes • Log Homes • Manufactured Homes • Earth-Sheltered Homes Page 3

  4. Passive Solar Home Design Five Elements of Passive Solar Home • Aperture (Collector) • Absorber • Thermal Mass • Distribution • Control Page 4

  5. How Passive Solar Home Design Works Heat Movement Mechanisms • Conduction • Convection • Radiation • Thermal Capacitance Page 5

  6. Passive Solar Home Energy Rankings Page 6

  7. Passive Solar Home Thermogram Page 7

  8. Cool Roofs Benefits of Cool Roofs • Reduce energy bills by decreasing air condition needs • Improve indoor comfort for spaces that are not air conditioned • Decrease roof operating temperature, which may extend roof service life. • Reduce local air temperatures • Lower peak electricity demand • Reduce power plant emissions Page 8

  9. Whole House Design Systems Approach Elements of Your Home • Appliances & Home Electronics • Insulation and air sealing • Lighting and daylighting • Space and cooling • Water Heating • Windows, doors & skylights Page 9

  10. Why Become a SunBuilt Builder? Energy Advantages • Beginning March 2009, the Florida Energy Code will become 15% more stringent. • Solar water heaters can provide a significant reduction in Energy Code points. • If you’re looking to be green, solar water heaters are now a line item on the FGBC checklist. Page 10

  11. Energy Code Improvements – Ways to Reach 15% Reduction Measure Measure Effect Energy Savings Page 11

  12. SunBuilt Builder Program How it Works • Solar contractor installs solar water heater and builder submits rebate application. • Builder receives rebate and client educational materials for model or Parade home(s). • Builder agrees to participate at gold or silver level by signing pledge. Page 12

  13. Gold Builder – 100% of Homes with Solar Water Heaters • Sign Gold Builder Pledge. • Fillout and submit system voucher application. • Receive approval from SunBuilt Program to install free system. • Install system. • Receive materials for Model Home(s). • Submit rebate application after each installation.

  16. Appliances and Home Electronics • 20% of household energy bills come from appliances and electronics such as: • Clothes washers and dryers • Computers • Dishwashers • Audio equipment • Refrigerators and freezers • Air conditioners • Televisions and DVD players • Water heaters Page 16

  17. ENERGY STAR • If product costs more than non-efficient competitors, investors can recover investment in a reasonable amount of time Government-backed symbol Easy to identify and purchase energy-efficient products Save on energy bills without sacrificing on performance or features Page 17

  18. Using ENERGY STAR Page 18

  19. American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, $300 million Rebates towards new ENERGY STAR qualified appliances MA allocated $6,235,000 to 39,000 residents in 3 hours on April 22, 2010 December 31, 2010: $207 million was distributed to 1.4 million customers. This equates to annual energy savings of 1.4 trillion Btu Program still open in 22 states Page 19

  20. ENERGY STAR Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs (CFLs) Pay for themselves in about 6 months Designed to last 6,000 hours (more than 5 years based on typical use) Average household has 30 bulbs 30 x $30 savings= $900 total savings Page 20

  21. ENERGY STAR Light Bulbs: Something to think about… • If every American home replaced 1 old light bulb with new 1 ENERGY STAR light bulb… • Save enough energy to power 3 million homes for a year • $600 million in annual energy costs • Prevent greenhouse gas emissions of equivalent of 800,000 cars Page 21
