EECBG Program Success 2012

  1. 1. EECBG Program SuccessPresented by the Michigan Energy Office
  2. 2. EECBG funds were distributed through the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) The State of Michigan received $19,599,600. RFPs were issued in 2009 for competitive energy efficiency grants for local governments - $17.44 million. Some funding went to regional Technical Assistance Grantees - $195,600.
  3. 3. Michigan’s EECBG Grantees are located throughout the State and include: Counties Townships Cities Villages Non-profits (for Technical Assistance only)
  4. 4. 2010 Multi-Purpose & LED Demonstration Awards
  5. 5. 2011 Advanced Lighting Technology Demonstration Awards
  6. 6. Types of Funded Projects:Energy auditsBuilding retrofitsStreet lighting (LED & Induction)Sidewalks, walkways, pathwaysRenewable energy demonstrationsRecyclingOther
  7. 7. Energy AuditsMany grantees began their projects withenergy audits. This helped to determinethe direction and scope of their projects.Eaton County and Saginaw County wereamong the grantees that used grant fundsfor energy audits.
  8. 8. Building RetrofitsBuildings retrofits constituted a majority offunded projects and included HVAC systemsand controls, energy efficient lighting andenvelope improvements in public buildings.Calhoun County, Laketown Township, MonroeCounty and the City of Sault Ste. Marie wereamong the grantees that completed retrofits.
  9. 9. Calhoun County received $351,450 for this Multi-Purpose project, whichincluded replacing chillers and installing a new, better insulated roof.
  10. 10. Laketown Township retrofitted the historic Felt Mansion with an energy efficientHVAC and hot water system with the assistance of an EECBG grant of $52,811.
  11. 11. The Felt Mansion is on National and State Registers of Historic Places and is locatedin Holland, Michigan near Saugatuck Dunes State Park by Lake Michigan.
  12. 12. Monroe County’s project replaced a chiller and boiler; also, they upgraded alighting and energy management system and funded school recycling demos.
  13. 13. New boilers were installed in the Sault Ste. Marie City/County Building.
  14. 14. LightingMany EECBG grantees took on interiorand/or exterior lighting projects to increaseefficiency and decrease lighting costs.The following cities are among thecommunities with lighting projects:Detroit, Southgate, East Lansing and Livonia.
  15. 15. The City of Detroit received EECBG grants totaling $500,000 toreplace street lights in redevelopment areas throughout the city.
  16. 16. The City of Southgates outdoor LED lighting was installed throughouttheir government campus with the help of an EECBG grant.
  17. 17. One of East Lansings new historical light poles with LED lighting.
  18. 18. The City of Livonia installed several types of LED lighting on theirmunicipal campus for their Advanced Lighting Technology Demo grant.
  19. 19. Sidewalks, walkways & pathwaysSome communities chose to use their EECBG funds forprojects to build or connect sidewalks, walkways orpathways. These types of projects promote non-motorized transportation options for their residentsand decrease greenhouse gases. Among the granteescompleting these types of projects were threetownships – Delta, Cannon and Oshtemo.
  20. 20. Delta Township has completed building this beautiful walkway with theassistance of an EECBG Grant of $128,202. Delta Township residents cannow enjoy the new Eastbury Pathway.
  21. 21. Cannon Township completed a pedestrian sidewalk loop connecting threeneighborhoods with the Town Square Village unit, the Cannon Township Center,and the Cannon Trail with the assistance of an EECBG Grant of $64,144.
  22. 22. Oshtemo Township connected seven segments of sidewalk alongWest Main Street in Kalamazoo, increasing pedestrian walking options.
  23. 23. Renewable EnergyA few EECBG grantees completed renewableenergy demonstration projects involving solarenergy, wind energy and geothermal.Examples of these projects are found in TuscolaCounty, Genoa Township and WilliamstownTownship.
  24. 24. The Village of Mayville installed solar panels as part of Tuscola CountysEECBG Grant Project. Tuscola County used $484,245 in State grant funds.
  25. 25. Genoa Township installed five Windspire wind/solar hybrid turbines with help froman EECBG grant of $94,919. These small scale turbines are made in Michigan.
  26. 26. New Geothermal heating system installed at the Williamstown Township office withthe assistance of EECBG funding.
  27. 27. Multi-PurposeSome grantees undertook projects that were diverse,multi-jurisdictional and designed to accomplish multiplegoals.For an example, we will look at Grand Traverse County.
  28. 28. Solar hot water heaters on roof of the Grand Traverse County Civic Center.
  29. 29. • LED lighting upgrades in the Grand Traverse County Civic Center. Indoor lighting upgrades in the Grand Traverse County Civic Center.
  30. 30. Variable Frequency Drive (on left) in Wastewater Treatment Plant.
  31. 31. LED lighting upgrades in a Municipal Building.
  32. 32. Additional ProjectsSome projects did not fit into the previouscategories or had a different focus orelement to them.Let’s look at a few examples.
  33. 33. The Eaton County Department of Resource Recovery, as part of their EECBGproject, installed a solar tracking array to provide an educational component to thecommunity.
  34. 34. Other Projects• Newaygo County – Their Grant bought Energy Star Office IT equipment for a Telecommuters’ Satellite Office and Educational Center called “The Stream.”• City of Grand Haven -- Grant funds were used to assess the feasibility of using vegetable oil as fuel in a back-up diesel generator.• Ishpeming Township -- Grant funds were used to buy a Truck Mounted Auger Mixer and a Dry Compost Screener to compost waste from a WWT plant, reduce landfill use and dumping costs while saving energy.• Saginaw County – Their Grant funded 34 energy audits. They then issued $2 million qualified clean energy bonds to fund recommended energy efficiency measures. The County arranged for a third-party to administer a $162,000 revolving loan fund for additional retrofits in smaller communities’ commercial buildings in future years.

  42. 42. Energy Efficiency Financing Options:The Energy Office maintains a list of EnergyEfficiency Financing opportunities and resourcesincluding:  Grants or Loans Available  Resources for Energy Savings Performance Contracting  Other Resources for Finding and Gaining Access to EE Financing
  43. 43. Energy Savings Performance Contracting • Offers an innovative way to finance energy efficiency projects with little to no up-front cost to the clients. • Project will essentially pay for itself with the energy saved from the installation of energy conservations measures. • Energy Service Companies (ESCOs) will scope project, install ECMs, and monitor performance. • Many times, savings are guaranteed and if not met, the ESCO will pay out-of-pocket to make-up the difference to the client.
  44. 44. Other Resources/OptionsConsider joining the Michigan Green Communities Networkwhere communities share information on best practices relatedto many different types of conservation initiatives.
