  1. Welcome Home to Savings Building Revolutionaries Renewable Energy in Subsidized Multifamily Housing

  2. Agenda • Challenge • Solution • One-stop shop • Six-step action plan • Hypothetical case-study impact • Conclusion

  3. Challenge 100 MW of renewable energy in federally subsidized housing by 2020 Overcome the split incentive Streamline financing and installation process

  4. Solution • Building Assessment • Energy Audit • Comprehensive HUD database • Streamlined process • Easy decisions for owner • Hassle- and worry-free financing • Encourages participation • Improves transparency • Establishes trust and relationships • One stop shop • Clean energy alternatives • Incentives • Financing

  5. Six-Step Action Plan • Eligibility Criteria • Energy Audit • Financing • Optimum Solutions • Follow-up • Education, Awareness & Outreach

  6. Six-Step Action Plan, continued 2 Creation of a comprehensive database for HUD • Privately Owned • Existing multifamily units • HUD subsidized • Eligibility Criteria • Projects not refinancing • 40-80 units • >30 years old • Not PHAs (public housing agency) Multifamily family housing with 40 – 80 units

  7. Six-Step Action Plan, continued 3 • Privately Owned • Existing multifamily units • HUD subsidized • Eligibility Criteria • Projects not refinancing • 40-80 units • >30 years old • Not PHAs (public housing agency) Multifamily Inventory of units for the elderly and Persons with Disabilities, CA 2014

  8. Six-Step Action Plan, continued 4 • Goal: • Hassle-free decision making • Analyze data for owner • Offer design alternatives • Based on Price • Based on payback • Based on project length

  9. Six-Step Action Plan, continued 5 • Zip code • Climate data • Available rooftop sq. ft. • (for solar panels) • Available grounds sq. ft. • (for ground source heat pumps) • Total # of units • Unit Sizes • Total # occupants

  10. Six-Step Action Plan, continued 6 • Natural Gas Usage data • Electric Usage data • Water Utility Usage data • Party responsible for utility bill: * Assumed owner pays for common area utilities

  11. Six-Step Action Plan, continued 7 • Primary heating fuel • Natural gas • Electric • Other • Type of Heating System • Central boiler • Individual forced air • Individual electric • Type of Air Conditioning • Central A/C • Window Units (#:___) • None

  12. Six-Step Action Plan, continued 8 • Energy efficiency rating* of: • Refrigerator/freezer:__ • Dishwasher:__ • Oven:__ • Microwave:__ • Interior lights:__ • *As listed when new • Age of: • Refrigerator/freezer:__ • Dishwasher:__ • Oven:__ • Microwave:__ • Interior lights:__

  13. Six-Step Action Plan, continued 9 • Hire certified weatherization auditor • Check for leaks and thermal bridges • Walls • Attic • Basement • Doors • Windows

  14. Optimum Solutions Strategy:

  15. Optimum Solutions, continued 2 Solar energy Ground source heat pump Weatherization Additional renewable energy? Future solution?

  16. Optimum Solutions, continued 3 On Bill Repayment (OBR)+ Incentives+ Policies Provides upfront costs Flexibility Public vs. Private Loan vs. tariff Win – win situation for all

  17. Optimum Solutions, continued 4 Avoid bill neutrality

  18. Six-Step Action Plan, continued 10 • Compare utility bills pre- and post- clean energy project installation • Verify that money is being saved so bills can be paid • Provision of reserve funding for projects not realizing expected savings

  19. Six-Step Action Plan, continued 11 • Partner with local building owner and manager associations • Form local advisory committees • Free on-site assessments • Multiple pathways for participation • Owners use HUD website • HUD contacts owners • Multiple pathways for execution • Prescriptive rebates vs. performance-based incentives • Variable program intensity • Fast-tracking smaller projects

  20. Hypothetical Case study Project Details: Location: Fresno, Ca Units:61 Area(rooftop): 15,000 sq. ft. Source: http://www.solarenergy.org/solar-calculator

  21. Hypothetical Case study, continued 2 • Potential renewable energy production • 15kW/61 units • 6 MW for California alone

  22. Conclusion • One-stop shop • Six-step process • Customizable projects • Simplified decisions • Savings for all parties
