Title
2009-10 Energy Conservation Plan - Phase 2 Capital Projects

Discussion

Strategy 2.3.1 in the 2009-10 Strategic Plan establishes a 10% reduction in energy consumption as a goal for 2009-10.  In order to achieve this goal, it is necessary to increase the operating efficiencies of our physical plant with capital projects in addition to a continued emphasis on behavioral modifications.  

On 10/13/09, the Board approved the Phase 1 Energy Conservation Projects in the amount of $737,707 with a projected annual savings of $330,892 for a payback of 2.23 years.  The Phase 1 projects were funded from remaining funds in the current capital projects. 

The Phase 2 Energy Conservation Projects will apply one or more of five Resource Conservation Measures (RCM) to 69 schools and 2 ancillary facilities. 

Cost:  The total estimated cost is $703,704.

Savings:  The total estimated annual savings is $227,039.

Payback:  The estimated payback is 3.10 years.

Schedule:  The work will begin on 4/1/10 and be completed  by 10/31/10.

Funding:  Funding is from FPL rebates either previously received or pending (applications approved / rebates in process).
