• This incentive is available for HVAC sequence of operation to be set to utilize the existing building automation system (BAS) to determine the length of time required to bring each zone from current unoccupied temperature to within 2˚F of the occupied setpoint temperature in the shortest period of time right before occupied mode

o This is accomplished by using the difference between the actual zone temperature and occupied setpoint and outdoor air (OA)

• During optimal start morning warm-up, the supply fan shall run continuously and the heating or cooling shall be energized but the OA damper shall remain closed unless in economizer mode

• Optimal stop shall use historical difference between zone temperature and outdoor air

2015 Custom Project Specifications

All custom projects must be facility improvements that result in a permanent reduction in natural gas energy usage due to an increase in a systems efficiency. Projects that result in reduction of energy consumption without an improvement in system efficiency are not eligible for a custom incentive. However, projects involving automated control technology may be eligible for incentives. All equipment purchased for custom projects must be new. Projects that entail measures covered by the prescriptive incentive program are not eligible for custom incentives.

The annual gas savings must be calculated for all custom projects using industry accepted engineering algorithms and/or simulation models. Calculations must be completed for both the existing and proposed equipment/systems based on the current operation of the facility. If the equipment has reached the end of its useful life, the existing system must be substituted with equipment that would meet the applicable federal and local energy codes when calculating the annual energy savings.

All calculations, metered data, equations, and assumptions must be submitted with the application along with their sources if applicable. Efficiency UNITED is solely responsible for the final determination of the annual energy savings to be used in calculating the incentive amount. Preliminary and post inspections are required to verify equipment and operation conditions. Efficiency UNITED reserves the right to require specific measurements and verification measures, including monitoring both before and after the completion of the project. The incentive payment will be based on the result of the above-mentioned activities.

Project payback is equal to the ratio of the project cost divided by the annual energy bill savings. To qualify for a custom project, the project payback must be at least one year and no more than eight years. A pre-application is required for all custom projects while the existing equipment is still in operation in order to allow Efficiency UNITED the opportunity to verify the existing equipment.

The following types of projects do not qualify for energy efficiency incentives: • On-Site electricity generation

• Renewable energy

• Fuel switching (i.e. natural gas to electric, electric to natural gas)

• Changes in operational and or/maintenance practices, or simple control modification that do not involve capital cost • Projects that involve peak-shifting and not actual Therms reduction

Joint Energy Efficiency Plan

CUSTOMER NAME:

Customer Address:

Electric Utility: Natural Gas Utility:

The intent of this document is to assist customers in identifying future energy reduction projects within the next three years. Doing so gives Efficiency UNITED the opportunity to assist in the development and implementation of a Joint Energy Efficiency Plan (JEEP) with customers. The customer is to develop an action plan to implement the identified project in the set timeframe.

Table 1 below summarizes the identified potential energy reduction projects identified.

Based on Table 1, the customer has set a goal to reduce its existing electric usage by _______% and/or natural gas use by ________% within the next three years.

Commencement Date

By choosing to develop a JEEP, the date of this Agreement will become the commencement date for the projects identified in Table 1. This commencement date for projects will be indicative of when Efficiency UNITED and the customer acknowledged the projects were under consideration and verified the incorporation of energy efficiency options into equipment purchases.

This can serve as a conditional preapproval date for technical opportunities that may be considered for Efficiency UNITED customized incentives. This eliminates a situation in which the preapproval occurs after equipment is ordered or purchased, thus avoiding the possibility of not receiving an incentive. This however does not guarantee the project will qualify for an incentive, nor does it guarantee implementing the project will result in energy savings. All projects identified in this Agreement will still need to go through the preapproval process to determine if the project will qualify for an incentive, the incentive amount and to reserve appropriate funding.

Technical opportunities identified and scoped through work performed as part of one of the studies included in this plan will be subject to this date of influence.

Access to Utility Data

In order to assist the customer with the development and implementation of a JEEP, the customer agrees to provide Efficiency UNITED with the 12 most-recent months of electric and natural gas cost and consumption information. This information can be provided in the form of copies of utility bills or in a spreadsheet summary.
