Markham Energy Management Projects: 2014

Markham’s Energy Management Projects 2014

Project: 555 Miller Lighting and Motion Sensor Retrofit

Completion Date: May 2014

Present Situation: 555 Miller Avenue has three main high bay areas with 50 inefficient metal halide fixtures.

Proposal: Replace the inefficient lighting with more efficient high output T8 fixtures.

Advantages: Savings of $9,500 between energy and maintenance reductions.

Project Team: Laurie Canning, Amanda Martin

Project: Mount Joy, Centennial CC, Varley Art Gallery, Rouge River CC, Armadale CC, and Crosby CC Exit Sign Upgrade

Completion Date: June 2014

Present Situation: All of the facilities listed above had older incandescent exit signs which operate 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.

Proposal: Replace incandescent exit signs with photoluminescent (glow-in-the-dark) exit signs. The photoluminescent exit signs absorb light from surrounding areas and glow in the dark when the lights go out.

Advantages: Energy and maintenance annual cost savings of $9,000, are designed to last over 40 years (lifetime warranty), require zero maintenance, contains no toxic products, use multi-cultural pictograms, and can be easily installed since they require no electrical connections.

Project: Angus Glen and Markham Village Arena Lighting Upgrade

Completion Date: July 2014

Present Situation: Both arenas had less efficient lighting that were nearing the end of its lifecycle.

Proposal: Replace arena lighting with more efficient LEDs

Advantages: Annual energy and maintenance savings of $58,000, quick ROI, improved light amount and colour for occupants and safety, reduce heat load on AC, instant- on technology for operational savings, and longer lifespan.

Project: Corporate Energy Management Plan (CEMP)

Completion Date: July 2014

Present Situation: Markham did not have a long-term strategy for energy savings.

Proposal: Develop a 5-year Corporate Energy Management Plan to use as a strategy guide for project planning and implementation.

Advantages: Expected annual cost and savings for energy projects are forecasted, the CEMP will meet the requirements for the Green Energy Act, Partners in Climate Protection Milestones 2 and 3, and the City has a strong plan for next 5 years.

Project: Rouge River Upgraded Golf Course Irrigation System

Completion Date: August 2014

Present Situation: Pumps were nearing end of lifespan and were oversized.

Proposal: Right-size pumps to demand and add improved control systems.

Advantages: Annual energy and maintenance savings of $2,000, quick ROI, improved control and pumps sizing was reduced to operate more efficiently.

Project: Angus Glen Hallway and Pool Lighting Upgrade

Completion Date: September 2014

Present Situation: Both areas had less efficient lighting that were nearing the end of its lifecycle.

Proposal: Replace the lighting with more efficient LEDs

Advantages: Annual energy and maintenance savings of $8,000, quick ROI, improved light amount and colour for occupants and safety, instant- on technology for operational savings, and longer lifespan.

Project: Milliken Mills Pool Lighting Retrofit

Completion Date: October 2014

Present Situation: The pool had less efficient lighting that was not producing enough light in most of the pool and was nearing the end of its lifecycle.

Proposal: Replace the lighting with more efficient LEDs, which also increase light output

Advantages: Annual energy and maintenance savings of over $13,000, quick ROI, improved light amount and colour for occupants and safety, instant- on technology for operational savings, and longer lifespan.

Project: Energy Management Information System

Completion Date: December 2014

Present Situation: Facility staff is not sure how much energy they use month to month or how to compare versus outside variables and other similar buildings (such as weather).

Proposal: Use a web-based database that can normalize data, compare similar buildings, and create reports to increase facility energy use awareness.

Advantages: Increased awareness on facility use patterns, benchmarking capability of similar buildings, convenient location to access data, historical trends.
