Non-Profit Case Study

Newhouse

 The building on site is 33,000 sq ft and includes office, common hallways, resident rooms, building security , and parking lot lights. New House faced significant challenges in achieving its energy goals, especially because of their non profit status, and their budgets relying on donors . Couple that with outdated past its life cycle existing lighting . The primary objective of this project was to help New House achieve its goals for reducing energy usage, while not impacting their cash flow. A second and equally important goal was to obtain much-needed infrastructure improvements. Aging buildings and facility infrastructure impose significant costs and maintenance and repair burdens on New House’s facilities staff.


1.Project size, investment, cycle time from proposal meeting to task order award date to completion

The project that Aleo Prime proposed entailed a total investment of $36,218 with estimated annual energy savings of $12,935 and an annual maintenance savings of $1,250. This project received a rebate from KCPL in the amount of $36,218 which offset the cost 100% through their Low Income rebate program. The project took 2 months from proposal to award and another 1 month from product ordered to project complete.


2. Additional Metrics

New House is saving on average 129,353 kWh of energy annually which will amount to a 75% reduction compared to their existing usage. 


3. Project improvements

The major energy conservation measure was for replacing and retrofitting old office florescence, incandescent, and HID exterior fixtures to 10 year warranty LED lighting. This upgraded the existing equipment to provide adequate lighting, low maintenance costs, and up to 75% on savings on their lighting .

McCrite Plaza

The building on site is 84,000 sq ft and includes office, common hallways, resident rooms, common recreation, gym, building security , and parking lot lights. This project was a ground up new construction project , and Aleo Prime was awarded the job to value engineer the lighting package, procure the lighting equipment, and execute all rebates that were available for this project for the lighting , HVAC, and even televisions .  The original lighting package was estimated at around $350,000. After Aleo Prime was able to negotiate product pricing down by $160,000 dollars and added an additional savings in rebate of  $90,000 . Aleo Prime was able to get the project cost down by 72%.


1.Project size, investment, cycle time from proposal meeting to task order award date to completion

The project that Aleo Prime proposed entailed a total investment of $190,000 with estimated annual energy savings on there lighting of $42,756 and an annual maintenance savings of $7,500 in comparison to if they used traditional T8, CFL, and HID lighting. This project received a rebate from KCPL in the amount of $90,000 . The project took 8 months from awarded contract to customer receipt of final rebate, which is standard for new construction projects of this variety.


2. Additional Metrics

McCrite Plaza is saving on average 427,564 kWh of energy annually which will amount to a 60% reduction compared to if they used older antiquated technology . 


3. Project improvements

The major energy conservation measure was for installing high efficiency LED in lieu of  old fluorescent, incandescent, CFL, and/ or HID fixtures . Furthermore, the HVAC, and televisions used for this project were of the highest energy efficiency rating , to the point that they were able to capture additional rebates and incentives for that said equipment.
