Award Description: Municipal Buildings Energy Audit: The citywide municipal energy audit program will provide baseline data to allow the city to target specific energy efficiency projects. Testing will include a blower door test, which measures the extent of leaks in the building envelope; infrared cameras, which reveal hard to detect areas of air infiltration and missing insulation; and duct leakage tests. The audit also includes an evaluation of past utility bills and projected energy savings. A final evaluation report provides a summary of problem areas and recommended energy improvements with expected savings. The Arizona Energy Office will help facilitate energy audit protocol on municipal buildings. Community Energy Audit Rebate Program: The energy audit rebate program will be made available for residential and small commercial buildings less than 5,000 square feet. Testing will include a blower door test, which measures the extent of leaks in the building envelope; infrared cameras, which reveal hard to detect areas of air infiltration and missing insulation; and duct leakage tests. Funds will be made available to the homeowner or small business owner for an energy audit of their home or business completed by certified energy auditors trained through the Southwest Building Science Training Center and Arizona Home Performance with Energy Star program. The energy audit criteria will follow the protocol established by the Arizona Energy Office. The final audit report will include an evaluation of past utility bills, project energy saving projects and estimate payback periods for the suggested modifications. Reclamation Facilities Blower Replacements: The purpose of this project is to replace existing blowers at the Water Campus Water Reclamation Facility and existing blowers at the Gainey Ranch Water Reclamation Facility with the more efficient blower technology. LED Roadway Lighting Retrofit: The scope of this project is to replace existing high pressure sodium street light fixtures along main arterial streets with LED street light fixtures.
