About - Pathways to ZNE at LBE Cooperative (King City)
Project entailed an energy assessment of a low-income housing cooperative and feasibility studies of energy efficiency and renewable energy opportunities. Of the total estimated energy use of 114 MWh, the top three end uses are attributed to lighting, refrigeration and plug loads (62%, 16% and 10% respectively). An LED lighting retrofit can reduce the annual energy cost by $3,392 for an estimated implementation cost of $3,000. Adoption of a CARE rate schedule across the community can reduce the annual energy cost by $480.
