mobile home decommissioning measure
Mobile Home Decommissioning measure
  • Selected by S/R subcommittee for part of 2013 work plan at the June 11, 2013 meeting
  • RTF staff subsequently received requests to scope the feasibility of this measure and discuss with the S/R subcommittee before pursuing a contractor
mobile home decommissioning
Mobile Home Decommissioning

History

  • Pre 1976 – “Mobile Home” – structures did not need to comply with building standards
  • 1976 – HUD standard: Federal standards on design, construction, installation, and performance of homes: Mobile home >> “Manufactured Home”
  • EE standards in the NW and Nationally
    • 1992 – 1995 Manufactured Homes Acquisition Program (MAP).
    • 1995 – present: Super Good Cents, NEEM (MAP specifications), Energy Star, Earth Advantage, Eco-rated

Mobile Home Decommissioning

Regional Program Findings

  • PNL 1995 – Impact Evaluation of Manufactured Housing Acquisition Program
    • Billing analysis of pre-MAP (baseline) and MAP (efficient case) homes
    • Straight comparison of bills: 200 – 2,300 kWh/year savings
    • Regression analysis: 2,900 to 5,270 kWh/year, after controlling for size, secondary fuels, and heat pump presence
    • Baseline homes:
      • Were smaller
      • Used more supplemental fuel
      • Had more heat pumps
  • Savings will depend on specifically what new home replaces specifically what old home.

Regional Program Findings

  • Ecotope for Northwest Energy Efficient Manufactured Homes and Oregon Energy Department, “Draft: Summary of NEEM Manufactured Home Field Data and Billing Analysis”.
    • Treatment group only. Baseline = simulation of sampled homes with scaled down energy performance characteristics
    • 3,584 to 7,615 kWh/year

RTF Analysis

  • Savings calculator for MH, ~2002
    • 2,000 – 6,000 kWh/year from building shell
      • even assuming new home is larger than existing home
    • More savings from upgraded HVAC equipment and MH EE specified equipment (e.g. lights, water heater)

2012 RBSA

  • 321 MH sampled across the NW
  • Site audit and billing analysis
  • ~25% of MH are pre-HUD (1976). About half of these are pre-1970.
  • Observations
    • MH have gotten a lot bigger (from 1,000 ft2 to 1,700 ft2)
    • Heat loss rates decreased dramatically (from 0.52 UA/ft2 to 0.17 UA/ft2)
    • Homes are tighter (16.5 ACH50 to 4.8 ACH50)
    • Electricity is the primary heating fuel in 2/3 to ¾ of MH, except in Montana (17%)
    • About 10% of MH receive electric utility bill assistance
    • Energy consumption of pre-HUD and 1995-present HUD homes is comparable: improved energy efficiency has balanced increase in home size.

mh decommissioning costs
MH Decommissioning - Costs
  • Average MH Cost in 2012, PNW States
    • Single Wide – $31K to $48K
    • Double Wide - $75K to $81K
    • Source: U.S. Census Bureau http://www.census.gov/construction/mhs/xls/stavg12.xls
  • Incremental cost of Energy Star +
    • Source: Washington State University Energy Program and Habitat for Humanity, “Cost Implications of Retrofit vs. Replacement of Manufactured Housing“
      • http://www.energy.wsu.edu/Documents/RetrofitvsReplacementPNNLReport.pdf
      • Survey of manufacturers
      • Single wide - $5,500
      • Double wide - $6,400
    • Source: RTF Energy Star and Eco-rated MH UES
      • Build-up cost estimates
      • $1,400 to $2,100
  • Cost to decommission a mobile home:
    • Single-wide: $4,000, Double-wide: $6,000
    • ~30% cheaper if several MHs in same area are done at the same time
    • Asbestos: Even in older homes, it’s usually not an issue
      • When it is, it can add $700 to $1000 to the cost. In the worst cases, it doubles the cost.
    • Source: Interview with WA vendor
mh decommissioning remaining useful life
MH Decommissioning – Remaining Useful Life
  • RUL of existing MH:
    • Would these homes have been replaced naturally within the measure lifetime?
      • This would affect measure cost considerably (full vs. incremental cost)
    • Research required to determine the decay rate of older mobile homes
      • U.S. Census Bureau data exists, but is difficult to navigate/access

mh decommissioning making this measure work
MH Decommissioning - Making this measure work
  • This measure would require significant funding support from other agencies
  • Access to credit has been a large barrier to new MH purchasing
    • This measure would need to include considerable attention to financing
mh decommissioning discussion
MH Decommissioning - Discussion
  • Should the S/R subcommittee pursue this measure?
    • If so, proposed scope:
      • Planning UES measure
        • Measure assessment with the following components
          • Savings – use high performance MH values
          • Cost – confirm scoping data compiled by RTF staff
          • Non-energy costs and benefits – identify and estimate quantifiable, monetizable costs and benefits
          • RUL – Use U.S. Census Bureau or other data to estimate the natural decay rate of older mobile homes.
        • Research plan
          • Data collection requirements necessary to develop a proven UES or Standard Protocol
2013 work plan priorities
2013 Work Plan Priorities
  • Pursue Schools lighting UES measures?
  • Pursue Mobile Home Decommissioning measure?
  • [see 2013 priority list]
2014 work plan
2014 Work Plan
  • Current allocation in DRAFT workplan set at $40,000
    • May increase or decrease depending on scope
  • Continue following on priority list of UES measures identified in 2013?
  • Are there additional measures to consider?
  • Should finalize prior to December S/R meeting
    • RTF Work plan set to be final in November
rtf analysis of rbsa data
RTF Analysis of RBSA Data
  • EUI has gone down, but home size has gone up.
  • Not much change in kWh from pre-HUD to 1995+ HUD.
    • For planning purposed, the RTF MH EnergyStar and Eco-rated measure savings may suffice.
