2015 Annual Conservation Report 1.0 Introduction

1.0 Introduction

In accordance with Rule 25-17.0021, Florida Administrative Code, the Florida Public

Service Commission (FPSC) must establish numeric conservation goals for the Orlando Utilities

Commission (OUC) at least once every five years. In addition, OUC must file an annual report showing the status of its numeric conservation goals.

1.1 Background of OUC’s Current Numeric Conservation Goals

OUC’s residential and commercial/industrial numeric conservation goals for the 2010 through 2019 period were established by the FPSC in the Final Order Approving Numeric

Conservation Goals (Order No. PSC-09-0855-FOF-EG, issued December 30, 2009). On March

30, 2010, OUC filed a petition requesting FPSC approval of OUC’s DSM Plan, which was subsequently approved pursuant to the FPSC Order issued September 3, 2010 (Order No. PSC-

10-0554-PAA-EG), with Consummating Order issued September 28, 2010 (Order No. PSC-10-

0595-CO-EG). OUC’s DSM Plan sets forth the programs that OUC anticipated offering to achieve the numeric conservation goals established by the FPSC. The approved numeric conservation goals are summarized in Section 2.0 of this report.

1.2 OUC’s Conservation and DSM Programs

OUC has been increasingly emphasizing its DSM and conservation programs to increase customer awareness of such programs. Not only do these programs help customers save money by saving energy, the programs help OUC reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and better position OUC to meet possible future greenhouse gas regulations. It should be noted that government mandates have forced manufacturers to increase their efficiency standards, thereby decreasing the incremental amount of energy savings achievable. In addition, the efficiency of new generation has increased. These appliance and generating unit efficiency improvements have mitigated to some degree the effectiveness of DSM and conservation programs, as the incremental benefit of such programs is partially offset by overall efficiency increases in the marketplace as a whole.

The following two sections of this report provide more specific details concerning the

DSM and conservation programs offered by OUC in calendar year 2014, (Section 2.0), and present the participation levels and associated numeric savings for each of OUC’s quantifiable conservation programs which were offered in 2014 (Section 3.0) and were consistent with

OUC’s submitted DSM Plan. The quantifiable DSM Plan’s conservation programs offered to

OUC’s customers in 2014 included the following:

1.3 OUC’s Renewable Energy and Sustainability Initiatives and Community Involvement

The remainder of this section discusses OUC’s recent renewable energy and sustainability initiatives, as well as OUC’s recent activities in the community.

1.3.1 OUC Renewable Energy – Solar

In addition to continuing to promote DSM and conservation, OUC is actively working to promote customer awareness of opportunities to increase the role of renewable energy. One such initiative is OUC’s Green Pricing Program. Participation in this program helps add renewable energy to OUC’s generation portfolio, improves regional air and water quality, and assists OUC in developing additional renewable energy resources. Program participants may pay an additional $5.00 on their monthly utility bills for each 200 kWh block blend of local bio-energy

(75 percent), local solar energy (20 percent) and purchased wind power (5 percent); or $10.00 for each 200 kWh block of 100 percent solar energy. There is no limit to the number of 200 kWh blocks that a participant may acquire to support funding of additional renewable energy to

OUC’s portfolio. Participation helps OUC develop cleaner alternative energy resources, such as solar, wind, and biomass. The annual per customer participation of 2,400 kWh is equivalent to the environmental benefit of planting 3 acres of forest, taking three cars off the road, preventing the use of 27 barrels of oil, or bicycling more than 30,575 miles instead of driving.

Further examples of OUC’s commitment to renewable energy are OUC’s environmentally friendly solar programs, which are available to both residential and commercial customers. These programs include the Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Net Metering and PV

Production Incentive Programs, which produce electricity and the Solar Thermal program, which generates heat for domestic water heating systems. Customers that participate in the Solar PV

Program receive the benefit of net metering, which provides the customers with a monthly production credit on their utility bills for energy produced in excess of what the home or business can use. Any excess electricity generated and delivered by the solar PV systems back to OUC’s

March 2015 1-3 Black & Veatch

Orlando Utilities Commission

2015 Annual Conservation Report 1.0 Introduction

electric grid is credited at the customer’s retail electric rate. Participating customers in the PV

Production Incentive Program can install a solar PV system on their homes or business and sign an agreement allowing OUC to retain the rights to the environmental benefits or attributes.

Customers participating in the Solar PV Credit program receive a monthly credit of $0.05 for each kWh produced from their system. Commercial Solar Thermal Program participants receive a monthly credit of $0.03 for each kWh equivalent produced by their solar hot water system and a one-time $250 rebate. Customers participating in the Residential Solar Thermal Program receive a rebate of up to $1,000 for installing a solar hot water system and can finance their solar hot water system for as low as zero percent over 36 months. Residential customers may also benefit from OUC’s partnership with the Orlando Federal Credit Union to provide low interest loan options for solar thermal and PV installations, helping to keep the net monthly cost low..

Additional federal tax credits may also be available to help minimize costs.

To further facilitate development of solar energy, OUC supported Orange County in its efforts to obtain a $2.5 million grant from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to install a 1 MW solar array on the Orange County Convention Center. The project “went live” in

May 2009 and is currently producing clean, green power. In 2008, Orlando was designated a

“Solar American City” by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The ongoing partnership between OUC, City of Orlando and Orange County received $450,000 in funding and technical expertise to help develop solar projects in OUC’s service area that can be replicated across the country.

In September 2009, OUC and clean energy company Petra Solar teamed up to launch the first utility pole-mounted solar photovoltaic system in Florida. Ten of Petra Solar’s SunWave™ intelligent photovoltaic solar systems have been installed on OUC utility poles along Curry Ford

Road. Together the panels can generate up to 2 KW, about enough to power a small home. The innovative solar panel demonstration project is expected to help enhance the Smart Grid capabilities and reliability of the electric distribution grid. Petra Solar worked in collaboration with the University of Central Florida in developing the pole-mounted approach to clean energy generation. The SunWave systems not only turn street light and utility poles into solar generators, they also communicate with the electric grid and can offer smart grid capabilities.

The systems can improve grid reliability through real-time communications between solar generators in the field and the utility control center. In addition, the systems enhance electric distribution grid reliability through a host of capabilities such as voltage and frequency monitoring and reactive power compensation.

During 2010, OUC invested $100,000 in an educational partnership with the Orlando

Science Center to build a 31.5 kW PV array atop the Science Center’s observatory. The system provides about 42,660 kWh of electricity per year, or enough power to serve about four homes.

The PV installation not only provides green power to the Science Center but also an educational

March 2015 1-4 Black & Veatch

Orlando Utilities Commission

2015 Annual Conservation Report 1.0 Introduction

experience on the science of solar energy for the thousands of children who visit the center each year.

OUC has added solar to its fleet of natural gas, coal, and landfill gas generation already on site at Stanton Energy Center. Duke Energy owns and maintains the Stanton Solar Farm, which produces about 6 MW, or enough power for about 600 homes. Brought on-line in late

2011, the Stanton Solar Farm consists of more than 25,000 modules featuring solar panels with a patented single-axis tracking system design that can withstand Category 4 hurricane winds while increasing electricity output by 30 percent. OUC plans to purchase the output of this installation, which is the first solar farm in Orange County, for 20 years.

In 2013 OUC built the first Community Solar Farm in Central Florida. This innovative project allowed customers to “buy a piece of the sun” and receive the benefits of solar without having to install it on their own roof. The 400 KW system sold out in six days and had a total of

39 customers sign up.

1.3.2

OUC Renewable Energy – Landfill Gas(LFG)

The gas produced by the biological breakdown of organic matter in landfill is known as methane or landfill gas. It is created by the decomposition of wet organic waste under anaerobic, or oxygen-less, conditions in a landfill. This gas is considered a renewable energy source because the anaerobic digestion process continues as waste materials are constantly added to the landfill. In partnership with Orange County, OUC captures methane gas emissions from county landfill cells, and pipes it to the Stanton Energy center where it is co-fired with coal. In addition to helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, this project has the potential to displace more than 2 percent of the coal burned at the Stanton Energy Center. It will be capable of producing in excess of 100,000 MWh of reduced-emissions power and up to a total of 27 MW by 2018 – offsetting about 44,000 tons of coal each year.

OUC has signed a 20-year renewable energy purchase power agreement for approximately 16,000 MWh of energy generated from landfill gas in Port Charlotte, and a 20year renewable energy purchase power agreement for approximately 39,000 MWh of energy generated from landfill gas (the Shaw project). OUC is also exploring a landfill gas project in

Osceola County.

1.3.3 OUC Carbon Reduction

With more than 775 vehicles – ranging from plug-in hybrids to bucket trucks – OUC’s fleet logs more than 4.7 million miles annually. OUC reduces their carbon footprint by using alternative fuels, purchasing more hybrids and recycling automotive products to help our environment. As part of an overall plan to reduce emissions in fleet, OUC uses“B20” – a blend of 80 percent petroleum diesel and 20 percent biodiesel – a clean-burning alternative fuel made

March 2015 1-5 Black & Veatch

Orlando Utilities Commission

2015 Annual Conservation Report 1.0 Introduction

from new or used vegetables oils and animal fats, including recycled cooking grease. Compared to petroleum diesel, biodiesel produces lower emissions, so it is better for the environment. B20 has been integrated seamlessly into the fueling system without any changes to vehicles or fuel storage and distribution equipment. OUC uses biodiesel at the Pershing Fleet Center and the

Gardenia site. As a result of a $2.5 million grant from the Florida Department of Environment

Protection, Central Florida’s LYNX transit system plans to open a biodiesel blending facility and fueling station at its Orlando Operations Center that will be used by both OUC and Orange

County.

Embracing fuel-efficient technology as a commitment to green initiatives, OUC was the first municipal utility in Florida to acquire a plug-in hybrid that gets up to 99 miles per gallon. In addition to 6 fully electric vehicles and 6 plug-in electric vehicles, OUC has 32 other traditional hybrids in the fleet. Additionally, OUC has installed 32 fleet/employee electric vehicle (EV) charging stations to meet the needs of its growing electric fleet.

OUC now has four hybrid bucket trucks and one auxiliary battery system to operate the aerial tower hydraulics. Bucket trucks are a promising application for hybrid technology since much of the vehicle’s work is done when stationary. The hybrid diesel-electric system allows the main engine to be turned off while crews operate entirely off the battery.

OUC’s Fleet Division has incorporated a number of eco-conscious policies, including the use of earth-friendly products and special care taken to dispose contaminated fuels according to environmental standards. Tires, batteries and oil filters are recycled through vendors, while freon, antifreeze and motor oil are handled on site. OUC also has a vehicle idling policy that requires the engine to be turned off after five minutes. Diesel engines use about one gallon of fuel per hour when idling, so this policy saves about $4 per hour per vehicle.

As part of OUC’s commitment to alternative fuels and efficient transportation, three of the three of the 32 electric-vehicle charging stations at Reliable Plaza are powered by the sun.

Located in the parking garage, the 16-panel solar array provides a total of 2.8 kW of power to charge the vehicles. At night or on a cloudy day when the sun is not shining, the power is drawn from Reliable Plaza. When the sun is shining but no car is charging, the power is fed back into the building. OUC can access a special website to track real time info and total system usage for its charging stations. A full charge takes about four hours for a Nissan Leaf. OUC recently also installed five Direct Current (DC) Fast Chargers in Orlando, which charge up to 80 percent of an

EV's battery capacity in 30 minutes or less. Users have a key fob for the charging station and supply their own power cord. Plug-in drivers can go to mychargepoint.net to locate available charging stations nationwide. Users register with Chargepoint to set up an account that links to their credit card. The power is billed through a third-party agreement with Chargepoint, which remits the electricity fees back to OUC each month.

March 2015 1-6 Black & Veatch

Orlando Utilities Commission

2015 Annual Conservation Report 1.0 Introduction

To help prepare Central Florida to support plug-ins, OUC partnered with the City of

Orlando, Orange County, and others as part of a national non-profit initiative called Project Get

Ready. OUC and the City of Orlando also hosted the national kickoff of the U.S. Department of

Energy ChargePoint America Grant, which has provided nearly 300 public charging stations to

Central Florida; 135 of these stations are located in OUC’s service territory. Additionally, OUC offers a rebate of $750 to commercial customers who install additional charging stations within its service territory.

1.3.4 OUC Energy Efficiency and Sustainability

OUC’s commitment to efficiency and sustainability is further demonstrated by Reliable

Plaza, OUC’s energy and water efficient center in south downtown that opened in 2008 and replaced OUC’s 40-year-old Administration Building on South Orange Avenue. Reliable Plaza earned Gold Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification in 2009, officially cementing the 10-story administration and customer service center as the "Greenest

Building in downtown Orlando." The non-profit U.S. Green Building Council awarded the Gold level certification after completing a review of the building's design and construction. Reliable

Plaza also holds a Florida Water Star certification, a voluntary program for new and existing construction that encourages water efficiency in appliances plumbing fixtures, irrigation systems and landscapes.

Reliable Plaza showcases a number of environmentally friendly features designed to use 28 percent less energy and 40 percent less water than a similarly sized facility.

One of the more innovative offerings at Reliable Plaza is the interactive conservation education center. With a live link to the building’s conservation systems, the center’s touch screen gives customers real time data on how Reliable Plaza uses – and saves – energy and water. The center provides information on green building ideas and conservation tips customers can use at home.

1.3.5 OUC’s Green Team

With the philosophy that changing an organization’s culture requires both corporate and individual accountability, OUC has established the Green Team – a dedicated group of employee volunteers who are working to implement practical, sustainable operations in their respective work areas.

In addition to setting benchmarks and establishing metrics, the Green Team identifies ways to improve energy and water efficiency in OUC buildings, reduce waste, use product inventories more efficiently, lower emissions from operations, and create a healthier, happier environment for employees and customers.

With the Gold LEED-certified Reliable Plaza setting the standard, other OUC facilities have followed suit, implementing a number of environmental efforts, including:

Retrofitting and upgrading light bulbs and ballasts

March 2015 1-7 Black & Veatch

Orlando Utilities Commission

2015 Annual Conservation Report 1.0 Introduction

Installing light sensors

Turning up thermostats

Cutting back on landscape and exterior building lighting

Purchasing Energy Star-rated appliances when replacements are needed

Using environmentally friendly cleaning products

Upgrading HVAC systems

Installing rain sensors on irrigation systems

Cutting grass less frequently at water plants, substations and areas not highly visible to the public

Going forward, OUC is planning a number of new green initiatives. OUC currently has single stream recycling at all of its facilities and also recycles industrial materials such as wood pallets, utility meters, wire reels and copper. It has also developed internal policies such as electronic document storage, online document review, double-sided printing and specifies the use of recycled paper and office products whenever practicable. In the coming months, OUC will be focused on reducing its energy and water usage with efficiency upgrades at its Pershing and Gardenia facilities.

1.3.6 OUC Community Activities

OUC participated in Project Care to help raise thousands of dollars each year for United

Way 2-1-1, a local, non-profit organization. Since its inception in 1994, Project care has raised more than $2 million, helping fund more than 18,000 households and thousands of families and individuals. For every $1 donated, OUC will contribute $2 to the program. In addition, The

Proud Volunteer program encourages and rewards employees for their volunteer work in the community. Employees volunteer more than 10,000 hours every year and helps support a variety of non-profit organizations in the community. The annual OUC Charity Golf Tournament also has raised more than $410,000 for local non-profits since its inception in 1995.

In 2014, Conservation specialists conducted presentations, provided face-to face consultations, scheduled audits, and disseminated information on conservation programs. Below is a list of events OUC has participated in:

Orange County Environmental Education Expo

Blood Centers blood drives

IOA Corporate 5k

Hispanic Business and Consumer Expo

St. Cloud Life Expo and Extravaganza [Orlando or Central Florida] Home and

Garden Show

Specific examples of community activities in which OUC was involved during 2014 are outlined below.

1.3.6.1 Believe in Conservation. OUC partnered up with Nemours Children hospital to celebrate the hospitals grand opening by giving the elementary school children the change to participate in the special light ceremony. The winning schools received $1,000 to be used to teach children the importance of conservation and efficiency; knowledge which will help their families reduce their utility bills by making good decisions. Nemours also is going green. In fact, 90 percent of the hospital’s construction waste has been recycled, and reclaimed water is being used for more than

60,000 square feet of garden space.

1.3.6.2 Water Color Project. For the eighth year in a row, OUC hosted the Water Color

Project, a conservation-themed art program that encourages students to showcase the importance of saving water through their artwork. More than 2,700 students from 29 schools competed to have their artwork featured in an annual calendar, while middle and high school students decorate rain barrels that become a traveling exhibit that is displayed throughout the community.

1.3.6.3 Project AWESOME. OUC and the Orlando Science Center delivered energy and water conservation workshops to fifth grade classrooms throughout OUC’s service territory via Project

AWESOME (Alternative Water & Energy Supply; Observation, Methods & Education). It was the fifth year of the educational program that promotes both water and energy conservation through a hands-on curriculum using content approved by OUC and meeting Sunshine State

Standards. Projects included allowing students to make an aquifer, build a solar-powered car, and test low flow showerheads and compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) against traditional fixtures as part of an electric and water conservation and alternative sources educational program. Project A.W.E.S.O.M.E., which launched in 2009, delivers two 90-minute classroom workshops as well as hands-on labs and pre and post classroom activities—energy in the fall and water in the spring—to students in support of their Science FCAT preparation. A total of 5,500 students went through the curriculum.

1.3.7 Customer Education Initiatives

From providing better online access to their consumption history to designing convenient and effective conservation programs, OUC is arming customers with the information and tools they need to optimize the efficiency of their homes and businesses. While the tools and technologies we use might have changed, OUC’s commitment to conservation has not.

1.3.7.1 Mobile Site. OUC continued to offer a mobile version of its website for handheld devices. The mobile site lets customers interact with OUC on the go. They can pay their bill,

March 2015 1-9 Black & Veatch

Orlando Utilities Commission

2015 Annual Conservation Report 1.0 Introduction

check their account, find a rebate or get conservation tips right from their cell phone. Customers have the same online access to OUC.com but in an easy-to-use mobile format.

1.3.7.2 Home Energy Reports Program. The Home Energy Reports Program, OUC’s largest conservation effort to date serving 86,000 customers, encourages customers to conserve by comparing their consumption to their efficient neighbors. Participants receive regular emails or printed reports showing how they rank along with tips and suggestions on how they can improve.

To administer the Home Energy Reports, OUC is working with Opower, a software company that helps utilities meet their efficiency goals through effective customer engagement.

1.3.7.3 Energy & Water Conservation DVD. OUC continued to offer a conservation video in an interactive DVD format in English or Spanish that walks customers through a “do-it-yourself” energy and water audit for their home that can help lower their utility bill. It is also available online at http://www.ouc.com/waystosave.

1.3.7.4 Media Overview. To reach the desired audience, OUC implemented a comprehensive media campaign that utilized print, online, television, radio, outdoor media and community partnerships. By diversifying their media, OUC is able to reach a broader range of customers and reinforce their commitment to showing customers how to reduce their energy and water use and ultimately their utility bills. See Appendix A for samples of marketing efforts.

1.3.7.5 Orlando Magic Partnership. After assisting with the energy and water efficiency features in the design phase of the Orlando Magic’s new LEED certified home, OUC has continued its green partnership with the Orlando Magic since the Amway Center opened in

October 2010:

The promotion of the facility’s LEED certification and its energy and water efficiency

 features

Sponsorship of the NBA Green Week (April 2013)

An interactive educational booth at home game Fan Fest events. For example “Fix a

Leak Week”

A public information campaign on www.orlandomagic.com.

With this partnership, OUC reaches many of its customers who attend Magic games or follow them on TV. In addition to the approximately 7,000 season ticket holders who reside in the OUC service territory, 87 corporations hold suites, loge boxes or legends suites at the arena.

These include many large and mid-size commercial businesses that can benefit from OUC’s commercial products and services.

1.3.7.6 Connections. Connections is a monthly newsletter sent to all OUC customers whether they receive a paper statement or e-bill. The Connections newsletters also are posted on http://www.OUC.com and feature information on OUC’s programs, events and energy and water saving tips. A sample Connections newsletter is included in Appendix A of this report.

March 2015 1-10 Black & Veatch

Orlando Utilities Commission

2015 Annual Conservation Report 1.0 Introduction

1.3.7.7 Social Media. Facebook and Twitter allow OUC to spotlight special events and programs in the community and provide a conservation tip of the day, consisting of 365 daily tips on how to save energy, water and money. OUC also utilizes OUC TV via YouTube to promote conservation and renewable initiatives.

1.3.8 Power Pass Program

OUC Power Pass is a program that allows customers to pay-as-you-go or pay in advance for utility services allowing the option of avoiding deposits, late fees and a monthly bill.

Statistics have shown that pay-before-consumption programs result in less electricity usage and water because the customer is more aware of how much they are using. Customers can check on their electric bill or water usage every day using the OUC Power Pass portal or receive alerts via text, email and/or phone.

1.3.9 Digital Meters

OUC’s entire service area is in the process of being upgraded to digital electric and water meters. The electric meters were completed at the end of 2013 and the water meters are expected to be done within the following 2 years. The digital meters are easier to read and provide detailed information about the customer’s daily energy and water use. Meters will also be able to be monitored remotely which will reduce costs and time while ensuring an accurate and timely reading for the customer. Remote monitoring also allows for OUC to better predict and prevent outages and restore power faster.

As shown in Table 2-1, the FPSC has established residential and commercial/industrial conservation goals for OUC for the 2010 through 2019 period. In response to this requirement,

OUC offered various programs during calendar year 2014 including programs that result in demand and/or energy reductions that were quantifiable, as well as programs that were not quantifiable but aided OUC’s customers in reliability, energy conservation, and education. Each of these programs is described further in the remainder of this section.

2.2.1 Quantifiable Conservation Programs

2.2.1.1 Residential Energy Survey Program.

OUC has been offering home energy surveys dating back to the late 1970’s. The home energy walk-through surveys were designed to provide residential customers with recommended energy efficiency measures and practices customers can implement. The Residential Energy Survey Program consists of three measures:

March 2015 2-1 Black & Veatch

Orlando Utilities Commission

2015 Annual Conservation Report

2.0 Conservation Goals and

Demand-Side Management Plan

the Residential Energy Walk-Through Survey, the Residential Energy Survey DVD, and an interactive Online Energy Survey. These measures are available to both single family and multifamily residential customers.

The Residential Energy Walk-Through Survey includes a complete examination of the attic; heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system; air duct and air returns; window caulking; weather stripping around doors; faucets and toilets; and lawn sprinkler systems. OUC provides participating customers specific tips on conserving electricity and water as well as details on customer rebate programs. OUC Conservation Specialists are using this walk-through type audit as a means of motivating OUC customers to participate in other conservation programs and qualify for appropriate rebates.

A Residential Energy Survey Video was first offered in 2000 by OUC and is now available to OUC customers in an interactive DVD format. The DVD is free and is distributed in

English and Spanish to OUC customers by request. The DVD was developed to further assist

OUC customers in surveying their homes for potential energy saving opportunities. The DVD walks the customer through a complete visual assessment of energy and water efficiency in his or her home. A checklist brochure to guide the customer through the audit accompanies the

DVD. The DVD has several benefits over the walk-through survey, including the convenience of viewing the DVD at any time without a scheduled appointment and the ability to watch the DVD numerous times. In addition to the Energy Walk-Through and the DVD Surveys, OUC offers customers an interactive Online Home Energy Audit. The interactive Online Home Energy Audit is available on OUC’s web sites at http://www.OUC.com

.

One of the primary benefits of the Residential Energy Survey Program is the education it provides to customers on energy conservation measures and ways their lifestyle can directly affect their energy use. Customers participating in the Energy Survey Program are informed about conservation measures that they can implement. Customers will benefit from the increased efficiency in their homes, and decreased electric and water bills.

Participation in the Walk-Through Energy Survey has been consistently strong over the past several years and interest in the Energy Survey DVD, as well as the interactive Online

Home Energy Audit, has been high since the measures were first introduced. Feedback from customers who have taken advantage of the surveys has been very positive.

OUC customers can participate in this program by requesting an appointment for a Walk-

Through Energy Survey by calling the OUC Customer Service Call Center or requesting an

Energy Survey DVD. OUC customers can also use the new Online Home Energy Audit at their convenience by visiting OUC’s websites. The Home Energy Audit rates how efficient a customer’s home energy use is and where one can make improvements to lower utility bills.

Participation is tracked through service orders that are produced when appointments are

2.2.1.10 Residential Efficiency Delivered Program. What was once referred to as the home energy fix-up program has now been revamped and expanded to allow for any OUC customer both Energy and Water to participate and renamed as the Efficiency Delivered program. The program is available to residential customers (single family homes) and provides up to $2,000 of energy and water efficiency upgrades based on the needs of the customer’s home. A Conservation Specialist from OUC performs a survey at the home and determines which home improvements have the potential of saving the customer the most money. The program is an income based program which is the basis for how much OUC will help contribute toward the cost of improvements and consists of three household income tiers: 1) $40,000 or less

OUC will contribute 85 percent of the total cost, 2) $40,001 to $60,000 OUC will contribute 50 percent of the total cost, and 3) greater than $60,000 OUC will contribute the rebate incentives

that apply toward the total cost. Each customer must request and complete a free Residential

Energy Survey. Ordinarily, Energy Survey recommendations require a customer to spend money replacing or adding energy conservation measures: however, customers may not have the discretionary income to implement these measures especially those in the lower income tier.

Under this program, OUC will arrange for a licensed, approved contractor to perform the necessary repairs based on a negotiated and contracted rate. The remaining portion of the cost the customer is responsible for, can be paid directly to OUC or over an interest-free 12-month period on the participant’s monthly electric bill. To be eligible for this program, the customer’s account must be in good credit standing with the exception of our low-income customers who are only required to have a current balance. Some of the improvements covered under this program include ceiling insulation, duct system repair, pipe insulation, window film, window caulk, door caulk, door weather stripping, door sweep, threshold plate, air filter replacement, toilet replacement, irrigation repairs, water flow restrictors and minor plumbing repairs.

The purpose of the program is to reduce the energy and water costs especially for lowincome households, particularly those households with elderly persons, disabled persons and children. Through this program, OUC helps to lower the bills of customers who may have difficulty paying their bills, thereby decreasing the potential for costly service disconnect fees and late charges. OUC believes that this program will help customers afford other essential living expenses. For others, this program offers a one-stop-shop to facilitate the implementation of a whole suite of conservation measures at reasonable costs and pre-screened qualified contractors.

Efficiency Delivered contractor(s) are selected through a Request For Proposal (RFP) process on a routine basis. Eligible customers are referred to the participating contractor after the

OUC Conservation Specialist inspection is complete. The Efficiency Delivered contractor then inspects the home and creates a proposal to install eligible measures. Once the customer accepts the proposal and signs the agreement the contractor calls the customer and schedules the work.

Typically the work is completed within 45 days. Upon receipt of notice of completion and customer acceptance, payment to the contractor is processed and the customer’s share of the conservation improvements is billed. Participation is tracked based on completed installations.

2.2.1.11 Residential Billed Solution Insulation Program. The billed solution insulation program was merged into the newly expanded Efficiency Delivered program in 2011 as described above. OUC is still providing interest free financing over 12 months through the

OUC bill for any remaining costs that exist not covered by OUC’s incentives, up to $2,000.

2.2.1.12 Residential New Home Rebate Program. Previously named The Residential

Gold Ring Home Program has been transformed into a more flexible “a la carte” program offering a variety of choices for the Builder or Home buyer. This transformation was based on feedback OUC received from the residential building community in order to increase the level of

2.2.1.13 Residential Compact Fluorescent Lighting Program. OUC will give away at least one compact fluorescent lamp to customers who participate in OUC’s in-home energy audit program. OUC will encourage their installation in fixtures that they use the most or at least operate four hours per day. This practice may be eliminated as incandescent lamps are curtailed from the market place due to legislation over the next few years. The loss of the energy savings will be made up through increases from other OUC programs.

2.2.1.14 Residential AC Proper Sizing with R-30 Attic Insulation Program. OUC offers this program to assist its customers in properly sizing their air conditioning (AC) units.

The program combines proper sizing of AC systems along with installation of R-30 insulation with the intent of reducing the size required by a half ton or more. OUC will provide the customer with a $40 rebate when provided with certified sizing documentation; the rebate increases to $85 when combined with participation in another OUC program such as the Heat

Pump, Block Wall Insulation, Ceiling Insulation Upgrade, Floor Insulation Upgrade, or Duct

Repair/Replacement programs.

2.2.1.15 Commercial Energy Audit Program. The commercial/industrial energy audit program has been offered for several years and is focused on increasing the energy efficiency and energy conservation of commercial buildings and includes a free survey comprised of a physical walk-through inspection of the commercial facility performed by highly trained and experienced energy experts. The survey will examine heating and air conditioning systems including duct work, refrigeration equipment, lighting, water heating, motors, process equipment, and the thermal characteristics of the building including insulation. Following the inspection the customer receives a written report detailing cost-effective recommendations to

Demand-Side Management Plan

make the facility more energy and water efficient. Participating customers are encouraged to participate in other OUC commercial programs and directly benefit from energy conservation, which decreases their electric and water bills.

OUC customers can participate by calling the OUC Customer Service Call Center and requesting an appointment for a Walk-Through Energy. Participation is tracked through service orders that are produced when appointments are scheduled and completed.

2.2.1.16 Commercial Indoor Lighting Retrofit Program. The indoor lighting retrofit program has been offered for several years and reduces energy consumption for the commercial customer through the replacement of older fluorescent and incandescent lighting with newer, more efficient lighting technologies. A special alliance between OUC and the lighting contractor enables OUC to offer the customer a discounted project cost. An additional feature of the program is a “cash-flow neutral billing solution” that allows the customer to pay for the retrofit through the monthly savings that the project generates. This removes the major participation barrier of lacking the upfront capital funding normally required to implement an impactful conservation measure. The project payment appears on the participating customer’s utility bill as a line-item and is typically offset by the energy savings. The Term is set to be equal to the payback period of the project. After the project has been completely paid for, the participating customer’s utility bill will decrease by the energy cost savings.

Lighting contractor(s) are selected through an RFP process. Eligible customers are referred to the lighting contractor typically after an energy survey or through other contacts generated by OUC’s Account Representatives. The Lighting contractor inspects the facility and creates a proposal to install eligible measures. Once the customer accepts the proposal and signs the payment agreement, the work is scheduled and completed. Upon receipt of notice of completion, customer acceptance and an OUC inspection, payment to the contractor is processed, and the customer is billed through their OUC bill based on the terms of the payment agreement. Participation is tracked based on completed installations.

As contemplated in OUC’s FPSC-approved DSM Plan, OUC has expanded its Indoor

Lighting retrofit program by offering the option of receiving a $150/kW rebate instead of the billed solution mentioned above. This expansion provides more options to encourage participation.

2.2.1.17 Commercial Heat Pump Rebate Program. The commercial heat pump rebate program provides rebates to qualifying customers in existing buildings who install heat pumps having a seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) of 14.0 or higher. Customers will obtain a rebate in the form of a credit on their bill ranging from $20 to $1,275, depending upon the SEER rating and capacity (tons) of the new heat pump. The following table illustrates the incentives available depending on the size and efficiency of the Heat Pump installed.

2.2.2 Additional Conservation Measures

The following measures are offered by OUC to its customers, resulting in energy savings and increased reliability. Although the measures were not included in OUC’s DSM Plan, they are initiatives OUC’s local board of Commissioners have elected to offer that provide additional benefits to OUC’s customers.

2.2.2.1 Residential Energy Conservation Rate Structure. Beginning in October 2002,

OUC modified its residential rate structure to a two-tiered block structure to encourage energy conservation. Residential customers using more than 1,000 kWh per month pay a higher rate for the additional energy usage. The purpose of this rate structure is to make OUC customers more energy-conscientious and to encourage conservation of energy resources.

2.2.2.2 Commercial OUConsumption Online. OUConsumption enables businesses to check their energy usage and demand from a desktop computer and manage their energy load.

Customers are able to analyze the metered interval load data for multiple locations, compare energy usage among facilities, and measure the effectiveness of various energy efficiency efforts.

The data can also be downloaded for further analysis. Participants must cover a one-time set-up fee of $45, a $45 monthly fee per meter is required. There is a minimum 12-month commitment to the program before it can be discontinued and up to $500 for a load profiling meter and the cost of additional infrastructure to provide connectivity to the meter.

2.2.2.3 Commercial OUConvenient Lighting. OUConvenient Lighting provides complete outdoor lighting services for commercial applications, including industrial parks, sports complexes, and residential developments. Each lighting package is customized for each participant, allowing the participant to choose among light fixtures and poles. OUC handles all of the upfront financial costs and maintenance. The participant then pays a low monthly fee for each fixture. OUC also retrofits existing fixtures to new light sources or higher output units, increasing efficiency as well as providing preventive and corrective maintenance. New interlocal agreements have allowed this OUConvenient Lighting to expand into neighboring communities like Clermont, Oviedo, and Brevard County.

2.2.2.4 OUCooling. Originally formed in 1997 as a partnership between OUC and Trigen-

Cinergy Solutions, OUCooling helps to lower air conditioning-related electric charges and reduce capital and operating costs. During 2004, OUC bought Trigen-Cinergy’s rights and is now the sole owner of OUCooling. OUCooling will fund, install, and maintain a central chiller plant for each business district participating in the program. The main benefits to the businesses are lower electric energy consumption, increased reliability, and the elimination of the environmental risks associated with the handling of chemicals. Other benefits for the businesses include avoided initial capital cost, lower maintenance costs, a smaller mechanical room

(therefore more rental space), no insurance requirements, improved property resale value, and availability of maintenance personnel for other duties.

OUC currently has five chilled water districts: downtown Orlando, the Mall at Millenia, the Starwood Resort, Lake Nona, and the Orange County Convention Center including Lockheed

Martin and neighboring hotels. OUC envisions building other chiller plants to serve commercial campuses, hotels, retail shopping centers, and tourist attractions. OUC recently added its fifth district at Lake Nona, with the potential to provide up to 50,000 tons of chilled water to the medical complexes and research facilities located in the area. At full build out, this central chilled water system may be one of the largest in the US. In addition, a 17.6 million gallon chilled water thermal storage tank serving the Orange County Convention Center among other facilities and hotels, is one of the largest in the world. The tank works in tandem with 18 water cooled chillers and feeds a chilled water loop that can handle more than 33,000 gallons of 37º F water per minute.

2.2.2.5 Small Business Efficiency Pilot Program.

OUC’s Small Business Efficiency

Program shows small business owners how to reduce energy and water consumption and improve overall business operations. The pilot focuses on providing essential services to entrepreneurial and small businesses, which include how to write a business plan, how to write contracts, proper accounting methods and other information necessary for a new business to succeed. After completion, small businesses receive a $250 credit on their utility bill.

For participation, customers are required to complete a Commercial Energy Survey or have had one completed in the past 12 months, fill an application form (downloadable from http://www.OUC.com), and attend a one-hour counseling session at the University of Central

Florida’s Small Business Development Center (SBDC). Validation of the application form by the

SBDC is necessary before turning it in to OUC for credit processing.

2.2.2.6 Residential Floor Insulation Upgrade Rebate Program. OUC added a Floor

Insulation rebate to incent customers to insulate wood floors over unconditioned spaces. This incentive is mostly geared towards older homes that were not built to today’s more energy efficient standards. The $0.07 per square foot incentive is for a minimum of R-11 floor insulation.

2.2.2.7 Energy Star Washing Machine Rebate Program. OUC added a $50 incentive for the purchase of Energy Star washing machines to bring customers’ attention to the benefits of these new machines. Not only do they use less electricity and water, but they also reduce the energy required to dry the clothes which accounts for the majority of the electric savings.

2.2.2.8 Solar Water Heating Rebate Program. OUC changed its previous incentive of

$0.03 per kWh equivalent production incentive to a one time upfront rebate of $1,000 to residential customers to purchase a Solar Water Heater. Commercial Customers receive a monthly credit on their OUC bill of $0.03 per kWh and also a one-time $250 credit towards the installation of the BTU meter on the OUC bill. OUC continues to partner with Orlando Federal

Credit Union (OFCU) to provide OUC’s residential customers with low interest loan options for installing Solar Thermal Systems up to 36 months. Below are the low interest loan rates and terms for the solar thermal program. Pool heating systems are not included in the program.

2.2.2.10 Commercial Custom Incentive Program.

OUC developed a program to accommodate the various other efficiency improvements possible in a commercial application that were not covered by an existing standard conservation program. It is impractical to have specific individual programs for all potential conservation measures especially when there are technological changes and improvements occurring all the time. With the Custom Incentive program, OUC can accommodate practically any measure that can reduce electric demand above code requirements that a commercial customer wants to implement. The incentive is $250 per kW up to $50,000 per project or up to $100,000 per customer provided it is a measure other than just an indoor lighting retrofit. The incentive for lighting improvements is $150 per KW.

Qualifying measures can include chillers, thermal storage systems, packaged cooling unit replacements, fan and pump motor efficiency upgrades, refrigeration equipment, etc. The program brochure is available at: http://www.ouc.com/business/business-rebatesprograms/custom-incentive-program

2.2.2.11 Community Solar Farm.

Part of OUC’s financial strength is having a diverse fleet of generation, including renewables. OUC is always looking for new ways to increase involvement from customers in its sustainability efforts, and in 2013, OUC built the first

Community Solar Farm in Central Florida. This innovative project allowed customers to “buy a piece of the sun” and receive the benefits of solar without having to install it on their own roof.

The program was so popular is sold out in six days. A total of 39 customers signed on and began receiving power in October 2013.

In addition, OUC worked with the City of Orlando and ESA to develop a 417.6-kW roofmounted PV solar array atop the City’s Fleet Maintenance Building that is expected to generate about 580,000 kWh annually, equivalent to powering about 45 average-sized Orlando homes and offsetting 2,375 vehicles’ gas emission per year.

2.2.2.12 Commercial Energy Star Windows Rebate Program. The Energy Star rebate was designed to minimize the customers heating, cooling and lighting costs. OUC will rebate customers at $2.00 per square foot for ENERGY STAR® Window, $1.00 per square foot for

Solar Screen, and $1.00 per square foot for Window Film. Windows must be ENERGY STAR®.

Customers can participate by submitting a rebate application form available online at http://www.OUC.com. Proofs of purchase and/or receipts are required to be attached to the application and repairs can be performed by a contractor. Participation is tracked based on the number of rebates processed. Typically these rebates are credited on the customer’s bill, or a check can be processed and sent to the property owner who may have paid for the improvement.

2.2.2.13 Commercial Block Wall Insulation Rebate Program. Air leakage and improperly installed insulation can waste 20 percent or more of the energy used to heat and cool

2.2.2.14 Commercial AC Proper Sizing with R-30 Attic Insulation Rebate Program.

OUC offers this program to assist its customers in properly sizing their air conditioning (AC) units for their businesses. The program combines proper sizing of AC systems along with installation of R-30 insulation with the intent of reducing the size required by a half ton or more.

OUC will provide the customer with a $40 alone rebate when provided with certified sizing documentation; the rebate increases to $85 when combined with participation in another OUC program such as the Heat Pump, Block Wall Insulation, Ceiling Insulation Upgrade, Floor

Insulation Upgrade, or Duct Repair/Replacement programs.

Customers can participate by submitting a rebate application form available online at http://www.OUC.com. Proofs of Manual J or comparable certified sizing documentation are required to be attached to the application and repairs can be performed by a contractor.

Participation is tracked based on the number of rebates processed. Typically these rebates are credited on the customer’s bill, or a check can be processed and sent to the property owner who may have paid for the improvement.

2.2.2.15 Commercial Energy Star Washing Machine Rebate Program. The Energy

Star Washing Machine rebate program is designed to encourage customers to purchase an

Energy Star-rate clothes washer. OUC will provide the customer with a $50 rebate per machine when provided with a certified documentation.

Customers can participate by submitting a rebate application form available online at http://www.OUC.com. Receipt and proof Energy Star qualification are required to be attached to the application and repairs can be performed by a contractor.

3.0 Status of OUC Approved Numeric Goals

This section presents the status of OUC’s actual demand and energy reduction versus the numeric peak demand and energy reduction approved by the FPSC. In all cases, OUC has exceeded the cumulative reductions set as goals established since 2010.

Tables 3-4 through 3-30 present the annual demand and energy savings for each of the directly quantifiable programs offered by OUC during calendar year 2014. Each table also includes the actual program costs and participation for 2014 and participation projections for years 2014 through 2019, unless otherwise noted. The utility costs associated with the programs have been updated based on actual costs incurred during calendar year 2014. Unless otherwise noted, actual cumulative penetration rates for each program reflect 2010 as the base year and do not consider customer participation prior to 2010.
