..D e Posting Language ..Tit le Authorize issuance of energy efficiency program rebates by Austin Energy during Fiscal Year 2020-21, in an amount not to exceed $2,700,000 for multifamily energy efficiency rebates and $3,350,000 for commercial and small business energy efficiency rebates, for a total combined amount not to exceed $6,050,000. Lead Department Austin Energy Fiscal Note Funding is available in the Fiscal Year 2020-2021 Operating Budget of Austin Energy. Prior Council Action: For More Information: Jeff Vice, Director, Local Government Relations (512) 322-6087; Manuel Garza, Interim Director, Energy Efficiency Services (512) 972-9538 Council Committee, Boards and Commission Action: September 14, 2020 – To be reviewed by the Electric Utility Commission. September 15, 2020 – To be reviewed by the Resource Management Commission. Additional Backup Information: Austin Energy’s energy efficiency rebate programs provide customer incentives to reduce energy demand and associated costs, benefiting all electric utility customers and the utility. This authorization will allow Austin Energy to issue rebates to multifamily, commercial and small business customers during Fiscal Year 2020 - 2021 (FY21) for energy efficiency improvements in accordance with program guidelines and up to a combined amount of $6,050,000. The aggregate rebate approval request approved in FY20 reflects a continued commitment to be responsive and flexible to customer needs by reducing the wait time needed to be reimbursed for energy efficiency upgrades. Based on recent experience and input received from customers and contractors, the prior lengthy process and uncertainty caused many prospective applicants to not participate in Austin Energy’s rebate programs. The benefits of this effort really came to fruition in the Multifamily program, which provides rebates for both market-rate and income-qualified properties. Despite interruptions caused by COVID-19, program and contractor participation have increased significantly in FY20—a projected 5,300 unique tenant units will be upgraded (2,300 completed and 3,000 in process), almost double the number completed in FY19. These customers will receive an average of three upgrades per unit (e.g. smart thermostats, lighting, solar screens, HVAC tune-up, etc.), helping to reduce their energy costs during this period of economic uncertainty. The aggregate approval ensured program continuity by assuring that contractors and property managers/owners would receive rebate funding promptly which is even more important in these uncertain economic times. In FY21, Austin Energy will also revamp the Small Business Lighting Program to include additional incentives for smart thermostats, HVAC tune-up, and other technologies. This new ‘Express’ program concept will encourage …
