Title: Moving to Affordable Housing with ENERGY STAR


1
Moving to Affordable Housing with ENERGY STAR?
2
QUESTION ?
  • Is a home affordable if it...
  • has higher operating and maintenance costs?
  • increases default risk under homeownership?
  • doesnt provide a comfortable indoor environment?
  • doesnt maintain future value?

3
Affordable Housing
  • Utility costs in public and assisted housing are
    more than a quarter of operating costs
  • Maintenance is more than a third

4
Affordable Housing
  • As utility rates rise, affordable owners are
    pinched between debt service requirements and
    rising operating costs
  • Allowances are adjusted after rate increases,
    leaving tenants paying higher costs until
    allowances catch up

5
ENERGY STAR
  • National brand representing energy, financial
    environmental performance
  • Over 40 product categories covering appliances,
    residential lighting, consumer electronics
    office equipment
  • Certification of top energy performance for homes
    buildings

6
Why ENERGY STAR Works
  • ENERGY STAR symbol adds value to products and
    services
  • Simple, consistent national platform
  • Flexible, so partners can take ownership
  • Builds on existing market structures

7
Why Choose ENERGY STAR?
  • Lower utility costs
  • Lower maintenance costs
  • Improved durability and comfort
  • Streamlined procurement
  • Increased property value
  • Reduced air pollution / improved environment

Energy Star Options
  • Products
  • Homes (New) and Home Performance (Existing)
  • Business (Office, retail, etc.)

10
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING
  • Existing Housing
  • Specify ENERGY STAR products
  • Implement Home Performance w/ENERGY STAR (where
    available)

  • Specify homes/units meet ENERGY STAR (3 stories
    or less)

11
Products
  • Easy. Specify ENERGY STAR in modernization and
    maintenance purchases
  • Sample procurement language and calculators
    available
  • see energystar.gov, then Products, then
    Purchasing and Procurement

13
ENERGY STAR Specification Development
  • Product Selection
  • Based on national energy savings potential,
    ability of label to influence consumers
  • Recommendations from internal analysis or
    partners
  • Specifications
  • Must be significant improvement over national
    average
  • Developed with stakeholder (industry, utilities,
    and efficiency advocates) input

14
ENERGY STAR Product avings
  • Refrigerators At least 15 more efficient than
    the minimum federal efficiency standard.
  • Clothes Washers -- Compared to a model
    manufactured before 1994, an ENERGY STAR
    qualified clothes washer can save up to 110 per
    year on your utility bills.
  • Dishwashers - Use a minimum of 25 less energy
    than the federal minimum standard for energy
    consumption.
  • Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFLs) - Use 2/3 less
    energy than a standard incandescent bulb and last
    6-10 times longer.
  • Furnaces - Offer a rating of 90 AFUE or greater,
    which is about 15 more efficient than the
    minimum federal efficiency standard.
