3 1 Background 1.1 Program Funding The Get Energy Smart Retrofit Program is the result of collaboration between Sarasota County and the Cities of North Port, Venice and Sarasota in their applications to the U.S. Department of Energy s Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant program. These jurisdictions were allocated funds according to their population size from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 and decided to collaborate on the community portion of the Program to maximize the impact on energy savings, and jobs as well as to reduce administrative costs. Each participating jurisdiction has allocated a certain amount of Program funding available for their citizens. Once that amount has been expended, homeowners in that jurisdiction will no longer be eligible to participate in the Program. The total funds available for the community energy incentives are listed below: Jurisdiction Amount Allocated Sarasota County $1,511,251 (Unincorporated Area) City of North Port $298,815 City of Sarasota $100,000 City of Venice $225, Program Benefits Homeowner Benefits The Get Energy Smart Retrofit Program was designed to help eligible homeowners in our community reduce the initial cost of implementing energy conservation measures in their homes to reduce utility bills. The Program aims to increase the energy efficiency of existing homes in Sarasota County through incentives and information on home energy retrofit strategies. Save Money: With rising energy costs, conserving energy makes more sense than ever. By reducing the energy required to operate your home, you will save money on your monthly utility bill. Reduce our Carbon and Energy Footprint: Energy use for the average Sarasota County household adds 10.6 tons of Carbon dioxide equivalents into the atmosphere per year. That is equal to the emissions created by burning over 22 barrels of oil. By reducing the use of energy in our homes, we can reduce our reliance on imported sources of energy and protect our environment from the impacts of traditional energy sources. 2

4 Take Advantage of Financial Incentives: In addition to the savings that you will receive in your monthly utility bill, additional federal, state, and electric utility financial incentives for home energy improvements are also available. The Get Energy Smart Retrofit Program aims to maximize the dollars available by providing rebates and loans for residential energy improvements that may also be the subject of other incentive programs Community Benefits The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 economic stimulus was intended to create jobs, promote investment, consumer spending, and economic recovery. At the community level, this ARRA funded Program will help create or retain jobs and create business opportunities in the sectors of residential building and renovation as well as energy-related specialties such as energy audits and solar water heating. It will also reduce the collective energy and carbon footprint of our residential sector, the largest contributor to local greenhouse gas emissions within our built environment. This Program is an important step to help move our community to a more sustainable and resilient economy and energy infrastructure, with benefits in terms of cost savings, energy independence, reduced air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. 1.3 Available Incentive Types The Get Energy Smart Retrofit Program can help you in making your home more energy efficient. Program participants may be eligible for the following incentives: Free home Do It ourself Energy Saving Kit that includes ENERG STAR compact fluorescent light bulbs, WaterSense faucet aerators, smart power strips that reduce the standby energy use of electronics, and other items. These kits are valued at up to $150 depending upon what is needed in your home as indicated in your application A rebate of up to $500 for a comprehensive home energy audit A series of rebates totaling up to $3,000 for eligible home energy improvements. A summary of the available energy improvement categories, restrictions and maximum amounts is included in Attachment A. The full details and specifications for each energy improvement category are included in Section 5 below. A loan of up to $5,000 for eligible home energy improvements (Income and location limitations apply; separate Program Guidelines are available on the program website or upon request) 3

11 3 Safety and Responsibility The Get Energy Smart Retrofit Program is designed to improve and benefit the health, safety and welfare of citizens of Sarasota County. Homeowners and Participating Contractors are responsible to ensure that all federal, state and local codes and ordinances are complied with and that safety is given the utmost importance. Codes such as the National Electrical Code must be followed; asbestos studies may be required in certain instances; exposed wiring and other fire hazards must be avoided, among other requirements. In addition, the new Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rules regarding lead paint must be complied with. As of April 22, 2010, the EPA lead renovation, repair and painting rule (Title 40 Code of Federal Regulations Part 745) is in effect. The rule requires EPA certification for specific lead safety work practices that must be followed by anyone disturbing more than 6 square feet of painted surface on the interior or 20 square feet on the exterior as part of work in pre-1978 homes, schools and other buildings. Contractors proposing to do such work must receive the proper prerenovation education requirements, training, certification and accreditation. The rule requires that contractors complete an EPA accredited 8-hour training course. The EPA may impose fines up to $37,500 per violation, per day for contractors and firms that do not comply with the rule. For more information on these requirements, please visit the EPA's website at Homeowners who are implementing energy improvements that would disturb more than the indicated square footages are encouraged to select Participating Contractors that have such a certification. Homeowners and contractors are urged to do whatever research is necessary to find out about these laws and ordinances and how to comply with them as well as to ensure that all safety precautions are taken in implementing improvements. 4 Participating Contractors 4.1 Homeowner Selection of Contractors The Get Energy Smart Retrofit Program has identified some energy improvement categories that are eligible to be installed directly by the homeowner. All other energy retrofits must be completed by a Participating Contractor that has been pre-screened by the Program to provide services on specific improvement categories based on the contractor s submission of their relevant licenses and insurance. Homeowners will only be eligible for Program funds if the work has been completed by a Participating Contractor pursuant to the specifications identified in the Program Guidelines. The rebate and loan funds will be paid directly to the homeowner. The Participating Contractors will work directly for the homeowners and receive payment 10

12 only from them. There will be no contractual or fiduciary relationship between the Program or the participating County and Cities and the Participating Contractors. Sarasota County and the Cities of Sarasota and North Port are providing information concerning these Participating Contractors to homeowners as a convenience only. The County and Cities make no representation or warrantees as to the performance or abilities of the Participating Contractors nor is the listing to be considered an endorsement of any such contractor. Homeowners are encouraged to get at least three quotes for each project and to make their own inquiries as to the reputation and reliability of a Participating Contractor before engaging their services. Homeowners should satisfy themselves as to any necessary warrantees or guarantees for products or services provided. The list of the Participating Contractors that are eligible to provide services under this program is available on the program website or in hard copy upon request. In order to maximize the impact of this program on our local economy, homeowners are encouraged to select a local contractor and purchase supplies from local retail establishments whenever possible. The Participating Contractors who completed the Local Business Affidavit are indicated on the program website. 4.2 Contractor Participation Application Contractors and Energy Raters interested in providing services to homeowners through the Get Energy Smart Retrofit Program must fill in the Request for Qualification form (Attachment B) and attach additional documentation as outlined in the Qualifications Requested section of the Request for Qualifications.

18 Reference Information Guidance in the selection of ENERG STAR appliances: Check the yellow EnergyGuide label available for each appliance. See the Federal Trade Commission for information on how to use the EnergyGuide when in retail stores looking for your new appliance: ENERG STAR qualified refrigerators: According to the EPA, models with top-mounted freezers use 10 25% less energy than bottom-mount or side-by-side models. Purchase an appropriately sized refrigerator. Generally, the larger the refrigerator, the greater the energy consumption, the most energy-efficient models are typically cubic feet. Automatic ice-makers and through-the-door dispensers increase energy use by 14 20%. Use the ENERG STAR Savings Calculator to find out how much money you'll save by replacing your existing refrigerator with one that s earned the ENERG STAR label. Look for ENERG STAR qualified refrigerator models: ENERG STAR qualified freezers: According to the EPA, generally, the larger the freezer, the greater the energy consumption. Also, consider whether an upright or chest freezer better meets your needs. An upright freezer has a front-mounted door like a refrigerator and shelves that allow for easy organization. While a chest freezer typically requires more floor space, it's usually more energy efficient, since the door opens from the top and allows less cold air to escape. Use the ENERG STAR Savings Calculator to find out exactly how much money you'll save by replacing your existing Freezer. Look for ENERG STAR qualified upright or chest freezer models: ENERG STAR qualified dishwashers: ENERG STAR qualified dishwashers save both energy and water, using about 31% less energy and 33% less water than non-qualified models. To save even more water scrape food off dishes, don t hand rinse. Rinsing dishes can use up to 20 gallons of water before the dishes are even loaded. ENERG STAR qualified dishwashers and today s detergents are designed to do the cleaning so you don t have to. If your dirty dishes sit overnight, use your dishwasher s rinse feature. Find an ENERG STAR qualified dishwasher model: 17

19 ENERG STAR qualified clothes washers: According to the EPA, ENERG STAR qualified clothes washers save both energy and water, using about 30% less energy and over 50% less water than non-qualified washers. ENERG STAR qualified clothes washer models are available in front loading, top loading, stackable and under-the-counter designs, which fit in smaller spaces. Choose a washing machine that allows you to adjust the water level to match the size of the load and look for a model with a high Modified Energy Factor (MEF) and a low Water Factor (WF). Modified Energy Factor (MEF) is a measure of energy efficiency that considers the energy used by the washer, the energy used to heat the water, and the energy used to run the dryer. The higher the MEF, the more energy efficient the clothes washer. Water Factor (WF) measures water efficiency in gallons of water consumed per cubic foot of capacity. The lower the WF, the more water efficient the clothes washer. Both MEF and WF are listed on the ENERG STAR qualified product list: ENERG STAR qualified room air conditioner A window unit air conditioner must meet the Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) rating to be ENERG STAR qualified. See current listing of eligible room air conditioners: rs Do not purchase a larger room AC unit than needed thinking it will cool better, no incentive will be provided for oversized units. Oversized units can be more expensive initially and cost more to operate. In addition, oversized units can insufficiently dehumidify a room, leaving living space uncomfortably damp. Visit ENERG STAR to determine correct size room AC to purchase for your space before purchasing unit: Consumer room AC brochure chure.pdf 5.6 Comprehensive Home Energy Audit Complete home energy audit, conducted by a Certified Class 1 Residential Energy Rater The Comprehensive Home Energy Audit must be conducted by a Participating Contractor that is a Certified Class 1 Residential Energy Rater and include a Comprehensive HERS Rating that contains a prioritization of the recommended improvements based on anticipated energy savings and provide guidance on how to calculate cost/ benefit and expected return on investment of those improvements. The audit must include an evaluation, performance testing and recommendations for energy and water efficiency improvements to the subject home. The evaluation shall include a review of the data collected from any previous energy audit or survey, any further required measurement and performance testing, and a computerized simulation analysis of the home's energy performance using EnergyGauge USA Pro. The performance testing shall include a blower door test and a duct system inspection, 18

20 including supply and return air balance, air handler and all duct work. The duct system inspection shall include a visual inspection, a standard duct test to measure air leakage to the outside, and, if leakage exceeds 6 cfm per 100 square feet of conditioned space, a diagnostic testing to determine the location of major duct leaks. The audit report will include recommendations for where to seal the duct system (e.g. supply boot, master bedroom; return plenum penetrations). The final report must provide a detailed improvement analysis including without limitation: The path to follow in implementing the recommendations, taking into account timing or chronology of implementation relative to other recommendations, cost effectiveness and maximum energy savings. The report must indicate up to 3 Priority Recommendations, completion of one of which will be required to qualify for maximum rebate amounts. The report should also indicate the relationships between the suggested strategies and the impact of not doing one on another or the impact of order of implementation. For example, the report should indicate the effect of insulation on reducing the cooling load and size of heating or cooling unit. HERS Index of the home at time of audit and if all recommendations are implemented The energy and environmental savings from improving the energy and water performance of the home An estimate of the energy and cost savings associated with each conservation measure proposed and an indication of those measures that would qualify for local, state, federal or utility incentives An indication of the optimum scope of work for energy and water efficiency improvements for the home. Two copies of the final report shall be provided to the homeowner. To be eligible for the rebate on the Home Energy Audit, a resident must also apply for a rebate in at least one other rebate category. This requirement is to ensure that the information provided in the audit results in quantifiable energy savings at some level. Homeowners are encouraged to complete as many of the recommendations in the audit report as possible to achieve the highest level of energy and cost savings and take advantage of the greatest rebate amount available. Use of a Participating Contractor is required Required Documentation: Copy of the final comprehensive home energy audit report, certified by the auditor Copy of dated, itemized receipt or other proof of payment A simultaneously submitted rebate request for at least one other qualifying energy improvement rebate category in the residence 19

21 Amount of Rebate: Up to $500, not to exceed the invoice cost Note: For homeowners with an income of less than 400% of the poverty level, the requirement for the Comprehensive Home Energy Audit for certain rebate categories can be met by providing a report from an in-home audit and duct test by Florida Power and Light. The fee of $30 is eligible for a rebate with submission of a copy of the audit report and a receipt or other proof of payment from Florida Power and Light. Information on how to request is available at: l 5.7 ENERG STAR Windows and Doors Replacement of windows and doors with ENERG STAR qualified products is eligible for a rebate under this program. However, this measure is not recommended unless the windows need to be replaced for other reasons (e.g. broken frames, rotted wood). In this case, consider having a window film installed that reduces heat gain without reducing natural light 1. ENERG STAR qualifies windows based on U-Factor (which is similar to R-value) and, where applicable, Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) requirements specific to climate zone. An ENERG STAR window will carry a label that states that it meets the qualifications for the Energy Star program. It is recommended that in addition to being ENERG STAR labeled, windows should have a visible transmittance (Vt) of greater than 50% (0.50). ENERG STAR qualifies doors based on U- Factor and, where applicable, SHGC requirements based on glazing level (amount of glass). Comprehensive Home Energy Audit Required Use of a Participating Contractor is required Required Documentation: Copy of dated, itemized receipt or other proof of payment with notation by Participating Contractor of ENERG STAR designation for each window or door being submitted for rebate Copy of National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) label that shows ENERG STAR logo 1 Window films are recommended to have a visible transmittance over 50% (0.5) and a SHGC or shading coefficient less than 50%. 20

22 Amount of Rebate: With completion of one of the Priority Recommendations from audit report: 25 Percent of invoice amount, up to $750 Without completion of one of the Priority Recommendations from audit report: 25 Percent of invoice amount, up to $ Attic/roof/floor insulation Homes that were built prior to the 1970s have little or no insulation and newer homes often have insufficient or ineffective insulation features. This rebate encourages the installation or addition of insulation in existing single family homes. Additional information is available at: Safety should be the utmost priority for both homeowner and contractor installation. Other safety considerations include but are not limited to the following: Asbestos insulation should be left in place; insulation should not be placed over bare metal wiring or recessed lighting fixtures unless the fixtures are rated for insulation contact. Eligible Insulation Types: Batts: May be installed independently by homeowner Roll blankets: May be installed independently by homeowner Blown-in loose fill: Must be installed by a Participating Contractor. Spray foam: Must be installed by a Participating Contractor Minimum levels required: Over or under air conditioned space: R-30 for all types except spray foam which must be R-19 Under flooring: R-20 Must be installed according to manufacturer s recommendations. To protect consumers, the Federal Trade Commission has specific rules about the R-value label that must be placed on all residential insulation products, whether they are installed by professionals, or whether they are purchased at a local supply store. These labels include a clearly stated R-value and information about health, safety, and fire-hazard issues. Take time to read the label before installing the insulation and ensure all manufacturers recommendations are followed. A central air conditioning system is not a requirement for eligibility. Comprehensive Home Energy Audit is required Multifamily and manufactured homes are not eligible for this rebate category Use of a Participating Contractor is required for blown-in loose fill or spray foam 21

23 Required Documentation: If installed independently by homeowner, required documentation includes: Square footage installed Copy of dated, itemized purchase receipt, marked paid in full Cut out section from insulation package showing product name and R-value (or copy thereof) If installed by a Sarasota County Participating Contractor, required documentation includes: Copy of dated, itemized receipt or other proof of payment with notation by contractor of o Type of insulation o R-value o Coverage area in square feet Amount of Rebate: With completion of one of the Priority Recommendations from audit report: 25 percent of invoice cost up to $1,500. Without completion of one of the Priority Recommendations from audit report: 25 percent of invoice cost up to $ Radiant Roof Barrier To be eligible for rebate, radiant roof barrier materials must have high reflectance (0.9, or 90%, or more) and low emittance (0.1 or less). Radiant barriers must face an open air space (such as the attic) to perform properly. To be eligible for rebate, radiant barrier must be installed on the underside of the roof decking. Radiant barriers installed on the floor of the attic are not eligible, as they lose reflectivity over time because of dust. Radiant barrier must be rated either Class A by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) or Class 1 by the Uniform Building Code (UBC). Comprehensive Home Energy Audit is required Multifamily and manufactured homes are not eligible for this rebate category Use of a Participating Contractor is required Required Documentation: Manufacturer provided Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) that shows fire rating 22

24 Copy of dated, itemized receipt or other proof of payment with notation by Participating Contractor of o Square footage of installed radiant barrier, o Level of reflectance o Level of emittance o Class Rating by NFPA or UBC Amount of Rebate: With completion of one of the Priority Recommendations from audit report: $0.10 per square foot up to $200. Without completion of one of the Priority Recommendations from audit report: $0.10 per square foot up to $ Solar Attic Fan In poorly-sealed or -ventilated attics, attic fans can draw conditioned air up from below, increasing work load on the air conditioning system, and resulting in artificially increased energy bills. To prevent this effect, seal around all ceiling penetrations with a code-approved sealant and ensure that attic ventilation pathways are clear of insulation before the installation of attic fans. Ceiling penetrations include but are not limited to ceiling mounted fans and light fixtures and attic access stair or hatch (install gasket to seal opening). To be eligible for this rebate, a durable code-approved ceiling must be installed in all air handler closets in the conditioned space. If there is a combustion appliance zone (CAZ) located in the living space and if there are naturally aspirating vented combustion appliances, a worst case depressurization test must be completed on the combustion appliance zone to insure that back drafting of the vented combustion appliances is not an issue. Solar attic fans may not be installed in combination with a radiant roof barrier. The Comprehensive Home Energy Audit will determine the suitability of adding attic fans and recommend the appropriate number to adequately cool attic space based on the cubic feet of air per minute (CFM) needed to properly ventilate the attic area. To be eligible for rebate under this program, the improvement must follow the recommendations for number and location of solar attic fans as specified in the energy audit report. A solar attic fan must be the type that allows the solar panel to be located away from the actual fan to allow for maximum solar exposure on an un-shaded south or west facing roofline. Sun exposure during the hottest part of the day, from noon to sunset, will allow for maximum cooling benefits. 23

25 For more information on the technology, see the Florida Solar Energy Center s report at Comprehensive Home Energy Audit is required Multifamily and manufactured homes are not eligible for this rebate category Use of a Participating Contractor is required Required Documentation: Copy of comprehensive home energy audit report that includes solar attic fan recommendations Copy of dated, itemized receipt or other proof of payment with notation by Participating Contractor of the o Number of solar attic fans installed o Manufacturer s CFM documentation for solar attic fan model purchased Amount of Rebate: With completion of one of the Priority Recommendations from audit report: Up to $100 per installed fan. Without completion of one of the Priority Recommendations from audit report: Up to $50 per installed fan. Number of fans must match recommendations in the Comprehensive Home Energy Audit Report Duct Repair/Sealing To be eligible for this rebate category, the home must have an existing central air conditioning system. Duct Repair/Sealing must be included in a list of energy efficiency and retrofit recommendations furnished under a comprehensive home energy audit. The comprehensive home energy audit will include a detailed inspection of the duct system and the report will include recommendations for where to seal the duct system. All duct repairs recommended in the report must be completed to be eligible for this rebate. To prevent pressure imbalances that lead to combustion safety and moisture problem, repairs must be made on both the supply and return portions of the system. Repairs may include, but are not limited to: repair of damaged and disconnected ducts, sealing all leaks and connections, installation of new filter(s), reconnecting duct insulation that is pulling away from ducts, and duct insulation with an R-value of 6 or greater for ducts in unconditioned space. 24

26 A post-retrofit test will verify that the leakage has been reduced to 6 cfm per 100 square feet of conditioned space or lower. To prevent combustion safety and moisture problems, a worst case depressurization test must be completed on the combustion appliance zone to verify post-retrofit that the pressure difference between inside and out is no lower than negative three (-3) pascals under worst case operating conditions. In the event that the pressure difference is lower than negative three (e.g. negative four (-4)), additional repair to the supply side of the duct system is likely needed, even if the leakage to outside is less than 6 cfm per 100 square feet of conditioned. Where standard gas water heaters and furnaces are present in the home, a carbon monoxide monitor or detector will be installed centrally and homeowners will be instructed on what to do if the alarm sounds. Comprehensive Home Energy Audit is required Use of a Participating Contractor is required Required Documentation: Signed copy of comprehensive home energy audit indicating recommendations relating to duct repair/ sealing Copy of dated, itemized receipt or other proof of payment with notation by Participating Contractor of duct repair/ sealing services provided Amount of Rebate: With completion of one of the Priority Recommendations from audit report: 30 Percent of invoice cost up to $800 Without completion of one of the Priority Recommendations from audit report: 30 Percent of invoice cost up to $ HVAC- High Efficiency Central Air Conditioner Valid on units 5 tons or smaller, both split system and packaged unit.
