AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           May 10, 2010

 

From:                          Paul Kalv, Electric Director

 

Subject:                      Resolution Authorizing Assistance Agreement with the State of Florida, Executive Office of the Governor, Florida Energy and Climate Commission for an Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the Assistance Agreement with the State of Florida, Executive Office of the Governor, Florida Energy and Climate Commission for an Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) for a total project amount of $1,240,000.00, with a State share of $1,240,000.00 and without a Leesburg Cost Share.  The period of performance for data collection and reporting activities will be from May 10, 2010 through August 31, 2011.

 

Analysis:

On February 12, 2010, staff submitted Leesburg’s application to the Florida Energy and Climate Commission as one of 167 applications submitted.  Leesburg’s application was reviewed by a panel of three industry experts and was ranked number seven of thirty-seven applications favorably considered for funding.  Leesburg’s application was unique in that it was the only application focused toward reducing the need for less efficient peaking generation and the only application focused on providing utility consumers with the technology to enable demand reduction.

 

This project will provide in-home technology for 3,100 additional locations to compliment the 750 locations provided for in the Smart Grid Investment Grant project. The technologies proposed consist of in-home displays, load management devices and other elements required to empower Leesburg electric consumers, reward energy efficiency and conservation, and work as energy partners to reduce Leesburg’s wholesale power supply expenses by reducing the monthly peak demand cost and gain the operational efficiencies that the new technology will offer.

 

Options:

1.  Approve the Agreement with the State of Florida as presented; or,

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

None.  This project will be managed as part of the Smart Grid Investment Grant project.
