today
Today
  • Energy Resources – where are those kWhs? - “IRP”
  • New ownership on the horizon
  • Energy FinAnswer Program
  • FinAnswer Express Program
  • Self-Direction Program
why energy efficiency
Why Energy Efficiency?
  • To Utah Power, energy efficiency is a resource
    • Just like a generating plant (savings need to be there)
    • Utah Power has goals/targets for acquiring energy efficiency – part of a ten-year least-cost resource plan
    • Traders, schedulers, originators, analysts and economists (and DSM) working together to keep the lights on
  • In addition, energy efficiency programs
    • Benefit customers’ bottom line - help local businesses in Utah Power’s communities remain competitive
    • Have positive customer service impacts for Utah Power
    • Are part of a sustainable energy portfolio
how much do we need the irp
How Much Do We Need – The “IRP”
  • IRP is an Integrated Resource Plan
  • Planning model – how much new generation, how much DSM, etc.
  • 10 year plan highlights:
    • The least-cost, risk-adjusted approach proposed in a diverse portfolio of resources includes renewables, thermal baseload peaking units, and large quantities of DSM:
      • 2600 MW of baseload capacity
      • 1400 MW of renewables (not counted towards capacity requirements)
      • 1200 MW of peaking capacity
      • 1200 MW of shaped resource contracts
      • Up to 450 MWa of DSM and 117 MW of direct load control
new ownership
New Ownership
  • Pending sale to Mid American Energy Holding Company (MEHC)
  • Mid-American Energy (the utility) has robust suite of DSM programs for all customer sectors
  • Many of the same program types, prescriptive incentives, custom/ comprehensive, new construction focus, load management, etc.
  • Know the MEHC counterparts, exchange information. Continue the process, meet, exchange more specific information, collaborate on best practices, etc.
  • Both are local utilities with solid local DSM plans and results!
overview of new enhancements
Overview Of New Enhancements
  • Recommissioning
    • Designed to optimize building energy use
    • Designed to complement existing incentive programs
  • Load Lightener
    • Lighting load controller
    • Free installation
energy finanswer
Energy FinAnswer
  • Targets customers interested in comprehensive new construction or retrofit projects
  • Utah Power pays for energy engineering services
    • Identify energy efficiency options with high likelihood of implementation
    • Vendor neutral, investment-grade, independent assessment
  • Measure incentives based on energy savings and customer costs
    • Sign incentive agreement before signing purchase orders
    • Commissioning required for some measures
  • Most measures that save energy qualify – lighting limited to 50% of savings
energy finanswer commercial baseline
Energy FinAnswer - Commercial Baseline
  • Pre-set baseline for commercial new construction/major renovation
    • Pre-set baseline = current energy code
    • Code version dictated by building permit application date
    • Beat code by 10% on a whole building electric basis to qualify for incentives
    • Incentives based on savings and costs compared to baseline (code)
    • Major renovations – code applicability? Consultants tells us if code applies
  • Industrial (code doesn’t apply) remains the same.
    • Baseline checklist + plans determine the baseline
    • No 10% for industrial
energy finanswer design team honorarium
Energy FinAnswer – Design Team Honorarium
  • Design team honorariums for early involvement - designed to increase new construction activity
  • Honorarium of $1,500 - one honorarium per project
  • Requirements for honorarium payment
    • For project where we don’t already have a signed Letter of Intent. Get our Letter of Intent signed
    • Apply before completion of schematic design
    • New construction or major renovation project
    • Applicant has contract with owner for design services –paid even if not built
  • See handout
finanswer express new construction
FinAnswer Express – New Construction
  • For lighting
    • Beat code by 10% to qualify for new construction incentives
    • Lighting Power Density (LPD) for all areas of facility covered by code
    • Certain measures not eligible for new const: LED exit signs, regular T-8s, de-lamping, screw in CFLs
  • Consultant determines if code compliance required
  • For motors and HVAC
finanswer express lighting new measures
FinAnswer Express Lighting - New Measures
