A Brighter Tomorrow ! Advancing LED Lighting in Buildings October 15, 2013

Toronto Community Housing

slide2
Municipal Housing Company - An Ontario Business Corporation - Sole Shareholder: City of Toronto.

58,600 units, home to 164,000 low and moderate-income tenants

Over 200 high-rise and mid-rise apartments , 1,000 townhouse complexes and 1,000 scattered houses , average age of the housing stock over 35 years

Annual Utility and Water cost around $120 Million

Strategic Energy Plan: Energy Management Action Plan

Energy Strategy

Demand Side Mgt.

Supply Side Mgt.

Reduce Amount of

Energy Purchased

Reduce Avoidable Energy

Waste

Reduce Unit Cost of Energy

(Gas, Electricity and Water)

Energy Audit

Improve Efficiency

  • Replace or modify

Equipment to more

energy efficient

Find & Eliminate

  • Recurring waste

e.g. poor practice

Reduce Unexpected

Waste

  • Through monitoring
  • And targeting

Effective Procurement

  • Ensure energy commodities
  • bought at best value and billing
  • errors corrected
slide10
For the LED lights, power usage was reduced by 74% which will result in annual energy savings of $61 per fixture*.

For the florescent T8 lights, power usage was reduced by 70% which will result in annual energy savings of $58 per fixture*.

An estimated 20 year lifespan with minimal maintenance requirements is expected to result in significant maintenance savings.

The greenhouse gas emissions avoided will be approximately 197 kg eCO2/LED fixture/yr and 187 kg eCO2/T8 fixture/yr**.*Assumes $0.10/kWh **Based on 0.242 kg eCO2/kWh

Results of Pilot Project

slide13
Resident reaction to Pilot was undertaken through four focus groups sessions and questionnaires were completed and analysed

Sense of Personal Safety goes up

Reduced vandalism noted

Perceived the new LED lights to be brighter than T8 and old HPS

Motion sensors enhanced sense of personal safety

Residents Feedback and Perception

led trials to scale up projects
LED Trials to Scale Up Projects

2010-2011 LED lighting Program- completed 15 sites , 4ft LED tubes and 2x4 ft LED fixtures with tubes , total investment over $1.5 M

2012 LED lighting Program – completed 9 sites over $2 M

2013-4 LED Lighting Program – expand to include 80 sites with targeted investment of $ 7 M

slide15
Escalating utility and operating costs : 9 % per annum

Ageing facilities and equipment: 40 years old and capital backlog

Investment opportunity : financing and debt service

Technology breakthrough : SSL and Controls

Safety and security concerns: residents issues

Environmental attributes: green goal 40% CO2 reduction by 2020

Investment Grade Feasibility Study – technical and financial

Options Appraisals – life cycle cost analysis

Competitive pricing for retrofit LED tubes and controls

Government incentives and goals

Risk Assessment : technology , safety and health hazard, financial

Code compliance and changes: adaptive lighting and controls

Business Case Drivers

how projects are financed
How Projects are financed

Government grants: NRCan, CMHC, FMC, OPA, City Sustainable Energy Fund, TAF

Low-interest Loan: Infrastructure Ontario, FMC, City of Toronto

Bond and loan from commercial banks

Utility incentives : Toronto Hydro ( OPA)

Reduced Operating , fuel and maintenance costs – life cycle cost analysis

ESCO Model : Performance Contracting , ESPA

slide17
Technology maturing : SSL and controls

Standards : national and local codes ( cUL,CSA, Energy Star rating )

Competitive pricing : $1000 to $300 and below installed cost

Adaptive lighting controls : City of Toronto Municipal Codes and property standards now permit the use in common corridors, garage, laundry rooms and storage rooms ( but not in stairwells and lobby )

Key Barriers Overcome

slide18
Ongoing performance monitoring and measurement

Further development needed in Adaptive lighting technology and controls application

Further Technology advances to maintain and extend LED useable life span

Outdoor LED lighting and retrofit challenges for cost effectiveness

Government support and leadership

New Challenges
