organizations with energy efficient construction methods in new andexisting building programs. In order to qualify, an agency must be a 501(c)3 entity located within theNevada Power service area, and the grant money must be used to fund energyefficient retrofits and/orweatherization projects.Constructionmayinvolveresidential,officeandwarehousefacilities.Many nonprofit organizations work with limited budgets and rely on private donations and grants toprovide their services. In addition, Nevada Powers experience has shown that some nonprofitorganizations occupy older buildings due to the reduced cost to own or lease. These older buildingsgenerally have significant energy deficiencies and therefore offer a greater opportunity for energysavings.Nonprofitorganizationscanbegreatlyimpactedbyincreasesinenergycosts,andtheirlimitedresources may only cover routine and emergency maintenance, without consideration for long termenergy reduction. This program assists in identifying areas where the nonprofit organization mayincorporateenergysavingsequipmentandconstructionmethodsintotheirbuildingplanstoreduceenergycosts.SectionA:2008ProgramResultsA total of 14 nonprofit organizations received grant awards in 2008 for a total of 20 installed energyefficiency measures. In addition, six organizations received grants in 2007 for 10 energy efficiencymeasures but did not complete their projects until 2008. The 2007 measurement and variance (M&amp;V)study was not updated and the 2007projects completed in 2008 were included in the 2008 M&amp;V study.Table1providesasummaryofthe2008programyearresultswhichincludethe2007projectscompletedin2008. Table2providesasummaryofthe programresultsfortheperiod2006through2008.The energy efficiency measures included HVAC upgrades, lighting retrofits, LED exit signs,programmablethermostats,solarscreens,andwindfilm.Table3detailstheverifiedenergyanddemandprovided in Table 1 and also provides a summary of the number and type of energy saving measuresinstalledin2008.Exhibit APage 4 of 432NevadaPowerCompanyNonProfitAgencyGrantsJanuary20104Grants were awarded based on the greatest kW and kWh savings compared to the grant amount.Beginning with program year 2009, an economic hurdle rate will be used in the evaluation of eachrequest.Inorderfortherequesttobeaccepted,itmustsupportaTRCof1.20orgreater.Table1: 2008NonProfitGrantsResultsTarget Actual %ofTargetBudget$100,000 $77,122 77.1%Participants20 20 100.0%DemandSavings(kW)116 140 120.7%EnergySavings(kWh)225,000 406,189 180.5%TRC1.29 2.83 219.4%Table2:ActualResults2006through20082006 2007 2008 TotalBudget$108,384 $104,050 $77,122 $289,556Participants17 16 20 53EnergySavings(kWh)146,000 82,283 406,189 634,472DemandSavings(kW)86 42 140 268Exhibit APage 5 of 432NevadaPowerCompanyNonProfitAgencyGrantsJanuary20105Table3:FirmVerifiedLoadImpactResultsECMCountAnnualSavings(kWh)Partialyr2008Savings(kWh)CriticalPeakDemandSavings(kW)DirectLighting 7 144,197165,202 140Lighting 7 165,729HVAC 11 95,404Fenestration 3 649Refrigeration 1 210Custom 1 Total 30 406,189 165,202 1402008AnalysisThe program was successful based on the 2008 program results and the actual expenditures for theprogramyear.Thesuccessofthe programcanbeattributedtothefollowingfactors:Nevada Power worked to improve the overall performance of the program by working with nonprofitorganizations on improving their evaluation process and incorporating measures that would maximizetheir energy savings. Furthermore, it addressed a concern regarding the overestimation of programsavingsbyparticipantsinpriorprogramyears.NevadaPowerreviewedtheestimatesforreasonablenessand compared the estimates with the factors utilized by its M&amp;V contractor and applied a costeffectiveness evaluationpriortoapprovingtheprojects.Thisimprovedtheaccuracy oftheparticipantsenergysavingsestimation.Nevada Power worked to maintain interest in theprogram by having a direct mailing to 268 nonprofitorganizationswithinitsserviceterritory.ThiswassupplementedwithadvertisementonNevadaPowerswebsite,apressrelease,andotherpublicoutreachefforts.Incombinationwiththeeducationprovidedtoeachparticipatingorganization,thiscontributedtoasuccessful programyear.In addition, many of the participants used internal personnel to install efficacy measures to lower theirlaborcostand,asresult,improvedtheTRCforthe program.Several of the projects started in 2007 were not completed until 2008 and were delayed because ofcontractorconflicts,nonprofitpersonnelturnover,andalatestartdatefortheseprojects.Theresultsofthese carryover projects was that the 2007 performance appeared to be less than what actually wasaccomplishedandthe 2008resultsareoverstatedintermsoftheprojectsinitiatedin2008.Exhibit APage 6 of 432NevadaPowerCompanyNonProfitAgencyGrantsJanuary201062008LessonsLearnedNevada Powers effort to improve the participants evaluation process and to incorporate energyefficiency measures that were not considered by the participant was very successful in improving theoverall performance of the program. Because education is important in the overall success of theprogram, it may provide an avenue to expand theprogram. Furthermore, this also addressed a problemattributedtotheparticipantoverestimatingenergyanddemandsavings.Inordertomaintaininterestintheprogram,itisimportthatthedirectmailingtononprofitorganizationsbe supplemented with advertisements on Nevada Powers web site, a press release, and other publicoutreachefforts.Manyparticipantsusedinternalpersonneltolowertheirlaborcostand,asresult,improvetheTRCfortheprogram.Thisimprovementwasattributedto programswheretheincentivepaidfortheentirecostoftheprogram.Nevada Powers intent is to complete the approved projects in the year approved. The 2007 projectscompleted in 2008 were delayed because of contractor conflicts, nonprofit personnel turnover, andapprovalofthe projectsinthefourthquarterof2007.Detailed information for performance of this program in 2008 is included in the Section B of the 2008Annual DSMUpdate Report provided in ExhibitB.SectionB:2009ProgramThe goal/objective of this program is to provide assistance to qualifying nonprofit organizations with theinstallation of energy efficient measures. The nonprofit organization must be a 501(c)3 entity locatedwithinNevadaPowersservicearea.Byprovidingthisservice,thegrantsassistthecommunitybyreducingthe nonprofit organizations energy cost and allowing the nonprofit agency to increase its service to thecommunity.2009ProgramExecutionThe program will continue its efforts to achieve this goal/objective of providing assistance to qualifyingnonprofit organizations with the installation of energy efficient measures in new and existing buildingprograms.Thefollowingchangesandlessonslearnedhavebeenincorporatedintheexecutionofthe2009program: Nevada Power will continue to target measures that providesignificant energy savings and willcontinue the process of advising participants regarding these measures with higher savingpotential.Thisprovedtobesuccessfulin2008andwillcontinuetobeutilized.

To insure that projects are completed within theprogram year, Nevada Power will implement aprocess to encourage that an approved project is completed by December 1 of the applicableprogram year. If the program cannot be completed by this deadline date, the project will bemovedtothesubsequentprogramyear.2009ResultstoDateAll grant requests were required to be submitted by May 1, 2009. The review of thegrant requests hasbeencompleted.Exhibit APage 7 of 432NevadaPowerCompanyNonProfitAgencyGrantsJanuary20107SectionC:Proposed2010,2011,and20...</p>
