    • Energy efficient
    • Renewable
  • If standards are not met, AEP pays penalties
  • Renewable Energy Credits (RECs)
  • Energy Green Requirements by SB 221
    • 2009: .3% incremental energy savings = 140 gig watt hours
    • 2010: .5%
    • 2011: .7%
    • 2018: .75%
  • Penalty is based on REC cost
    • 7 cents per kw
  • Duke, 1st Energy, AEP must follow SB 221
  • Savings that happen during peak demands (3 months of summer) can be counted.
  • Mark down to of CFL to retailers
  • www.gridSMARTohio.com – web site for programs
    • $25.00 for turning in 2nd refrigerator
    • Free low income home energy audits
  • Once implementing an Energy Incentive Program reduce your AEP bill will be reduced.
  • More programs coming in the future: HVAC, motors, small business.
  • Current Program for 2009, most likely 2010. Unknown until future.
  • Should apply when the project is a go for construction.
  • Lighting
    • Information on www.gridSMARTohio.com.

        • Lighting occupancy Sensor
          • By amount of wattage not number of sensors
          • 400 watt metal Halide to T8/T5 Fixture
          • New construction is by lighting density.
    • Funds are distributed to the customer by a check.
    • Incentive covers the entire building, based on lamps.
    • LEDs are only on the Custom Program
    • Things that saving energy that is not lighting is under the Custom Program.
  • Custom Program
    • Retrofit and new applications
    • Non-Residential
    • Incentive Level
      • $.8 /kWh + $100/kW PDR (peak demand: 3 months in summer)
      • Range of payback 1 to 7 years
      • Max 50% of total project cost of the part of the project.
    • Solar Panels and Wind do not count for saving of energy efficiency. Only counted as RECs.
      • This program lowers the load to help the use of PV.
    • May be tiered base on project size.
  • Self-Direct Program
    • Non-residential
    • Greater than 700,000kWh/year from AEP
    • Experienced staff to manage, implement and verify energy management.
    • Can include multiple facilities under a single account.
    • Proposed
      • Option 1: Customer commits their energy efficiency and peak demand reduction; and pay the rider with incentive payments.
      • Option 2: Customer commits their energy efficiency and peak demand reduction; and exempt from rider. Cannot get future incentives.
    • Customer has already done the energy efficiencies.
  • Selling to Client
    • Must
      • Connect to the Stakeholders
      • Educate the Energy Team
      • Design the Lighting Upgrade
      • Sell you Project – comfortable and understanding
      • Project Implementation
    • Every watt saved is $0.40 / per year in electricity ($0.10/kwh; 4,000)
    • Electricity is the major cost compared to bulbs.
    • Savings
      • 25w T8 relamping
      • 15w CFL Reflector
      • Regular T8 to high efficient T8
      • Long life lamps
      • Occupancy sensors
      • Architectural elements and design integrity
    • Follow IESNA lighting levels.
