Measure 9: Savings Calculations for Electrical Submetering Energy Conservation Measure: Install individual electric meters in apartments Building electrical consumption after subtracting the savings from the replacement of refrigerators and the apartment lighting upgrade: 2,646 MWh Potential Savings: 15% of the building consumption Expected Savings: 50% of the potential savings since the residents will get as a rebate only 50% of the savings achieved Energy Savings: 50% X 15% X 2,646 MWh/year= 198 MWh/year Billing management cost: \$3.00 per meter per month \$ Savings: 198 MWh/year X \$136/MWh - \$3 X 12 months X 384 units= \$ 13,104/year Capital Cost \$5,000 plus \$450/meter. NYSERDA provides a subsidy of 50 % of the cost of the meter Capital Cost: \$5,000 + \$225 X 384= \$91,400 Simple Payback: \$ 91,400 / (\$13,104/year) = 7 years

Measure 10: Savings Calculations for Replacing Elevator Motors Energy Conservation Measure: Replace the MG sets of the elevators with Silicon Control Rectifier (SCR) power supplies for DC motors of elevators. Motors Power: Existing motor efficiency: Moving load factor: Idling load factor: # hours of operation moving: # hours of operation idling: Current annual usage while moving: (#motors)x(0.746 kW/HP)x(HP)x(annual hours moving)x(moving load factor)/efficiency Current annual usage while idling: (#motors)x(0.746kW/HP)x(HP)x(annual hours idling)x(idling load factor)/efficiency Energy Savings (replacing MG sets with SCRs): \$ Savings: ( Capital Cost: Simple Payback:

Measure 11: Savings Calculation for installing timers on bathroom ventilators: Energy Conservation Measure: Install timers on approximately 20 bathroom ventilation fans currently running 24 hours per day to reduce running time to 18 hours per day. Fan motor horsepower: 1/8 HP Motor efficiency: 65% The motor draws: (1/8 HP) X (.746 kW/HP)/ (65%) = .14 kW Energy savings: = (.14 kW) X (6 hours/day) X (365 days/year) X ( \$ .136/ kWh) X (20 fans) = \$ 835 /year Capital cost: \$ 1,000 Simple payback = (\$1,000)/ (\$835/year) = 1.2
