Transcript and Presenter's Notes

Title: PHAACO


1
  • PHAACO
  • Public Housing Authority Aggregation Consortium

2
What is PHAACO?
  • PHAACO is a loosely held organization made up
    primarily of Public Housing Authorities (PHAs)
  • We banded together under the HUD guidelines
    to be able to provide services for one another,
    specifically in the area of energy.

3
Why was PHAACO formed?
  • On November 29, 2000, HUD sent out a notification
    that stated that if PHAs wanted to join together
    to provide services, and/or secure services that
    would ultimately benefit the PHAs and save
    money, they were free to do so without the worry
    of the procurement policies that normally bound
    PHAs.

4
What PHAACO is about
  • PHAACO follows procurement policy guidelines in
    the establishment of the initial service. The
    members are then covered under the PHAACO
    umbrella.
  • PHAACO works with PHAs, and other organizations,
    both large and small, to provide the maximum
    benefit of any service that we choose to provide
    or develop.

5
Tell me more about PHAACO!
  • We have been in existence for seven years.
  • There is no formal board.
  • Every housing authority has an equal say.
  • Everything that is done is done through a voting
    process, and every member organization has equal
    weight with regard to their vote.
  • It does not matter whether the organization is
    large or small, each has one vote.

6
How many PHAs are currently participating?
  • Currently, Fourteen PHAs are participating in
    PHAACO. The fourteen housing authorities are
    Stark, Portage, Lucas, Zanesville, Jefferson,
    Lorain, Cuyahoga, Cincinnati, DeKalb, Amsterdam,
    Gallia, Geauga, Akron and Harrison.

7
What services has PHAACO provided?
  • We have given advice about topics such as,
    Performance Contracting.

8
Performance Contracting is a way to save PHAs
money regarding energy-related capital
improvements. A Performance Contract is an
agreement that HUD has to approve that may allow
you to replace doors, windows, lights,
appliances, and other energy related items.
What is Performance Contracting ?
9
PERFORMANCE CONTRACTING (CONT)
  • The rolling base is frozen to pre-renovation
    levels. Savings and paybacks are calculated to
    show how much consumption and costs are being
    accrued. The savings are used to pay for the
    equipment, and associated costs.

10
THE ADD-ON METHOD
  • There is also the Add-On Method (similar to
    performance contracting) that Stark has used four
    times successfully. With the Add-On Method, you
    get your energy saving equipment at no cost.

11
We have held conferences on Energy and other
issues that concern organizations.
  • We have partnered with organizations such as

The Office of Energy Efficiency (OEE)
Housing Urban Development (HUD)
Rebuild America (RBA)
Dominion East Ohio Gas
The National Center for Appropriate Technology
(NCAT)
Columbia Gas
Key Bank
Affordable Comfort
First Merit Bank
Oakridge National Labs (ONL)
Ohio Edison
and a multitude of other organizations, both
public and private.
12
Utility Purchasing
  • We are purchasing our gas from an independent
    company, and we purchase electricity in New York
    for our members there.

13
What other types of services does PHAACO provide?
  • Some of the services that PHAACO has been asked
    to provide are
  • energy auditing,
  • utility tracking software,
  • utility rate and tariff analysis,
  • energy software,
  • ESCO advice, and
  • energy service contract negotiation company
    advice.

14
What other types of services can PHAACO provide?
(cont)
  • Purchase of Natural Gas and Electricity
  • Engineering Services (HVAC, Electrical)
  • Resident Training
  • Staff Training
  • Presentations
  • Electronic Forms Conversion
  • Monitoring and Verification Services
  • PHAACO can provide assistance relative to
    performance contracting, general consulting for
    various subjects, and regulation advice

15
  • Because PHAACO consists of different size HAs,
    various needs can be addressed.

16
Some of the other services that we would like to
provide will be Cost Analyses, and General
Contracting Services.
  • We are considering putting a utility tracking
    system on the Web with security features. This
    will accomplish 2 objectives

It will make completing the required HUD forms
easier.
Organizations would have instant access to
detailed energy data and reports.
17
How can you join PHAACO?
18
There is an application that must be filled out
and signed by the Executive Director or the
person designated to make such decisions.
19
Once the application is signed, you are
automatically included into the group. There are
no obligations or requirements that have to be in
place.
  • You can end your membership by giving a 30 day
    written notice.

20
ARE THERE FUNDING REQUIREMENTS?
  • There are no funding requirements regarding
    membership. It is a free organization. We do not
    foresee any membership costs.

21
How often does PHAACO meet?
  • We meet on a quarterly basis. In the past, we
    have written grants, to cover the cost of
    transportation for those who attend meetings.

22
How does PHAACO secure funding?
  • We have written grants to the Office of Energy
    Efficiency.
  • Another way that we are generating funding is by
    receiving reimbursements from new accounts from
    our energy broker.

23
  • Since partnering with such diverse groups, we
    have learned that there are loans available
    through the Ohio Department of Development (ODOD)
    with zero to 2 interest rates. Funding is also
    available for weatherization efforts.
  • These resources could aid in improving housing
    stock in residences, PHAs, Colleges and
    Universities.

24
What are PHAACOs goals?
  • PHAACO wants to positively impact perceptions the
    public has about PHAs.
  • We want to partner with other organizations who
    share our concerns regarding high energy costs,
    and are committed to improving efficiency as a
    means to a more cost effective, comfortable
    environment for its constituents.
  • We want to improve fiscal accountability by
    providing solutions to energy problems.

25
  • We are looking to grow and we are pleased with
    our progress so far. We have saved lots of money
    for the housing authorities that have
    participated in PHAACO. Reports are available to
    show our savings.
