Central Manor is a 4-storey 48-unit residential building located in Edmonton, AB and was constructed in 1976. The building consists of mixed residential units. 3D Energy performed an ASHRAE Level 2 energy audit which determined that Central Manor has an Energy Utilization Index (EUI) of 1.30 GJ/m², which is 2.3 times the median Energy Star EUI for this type of building. After completing a site visit, 3D Energy was able to identify 15 different energy conservation and renewable energy measures. Of the 15 measures analyzed, 3D Energy recommended implementation of 5 measures that would save approximately $5,868 a year with a simple payback of 7.3 years. These measures included lighting upgrades, upgrading water fixtures, and replacing the duct furnace. The remaining conservation measures were not recommended due to a long payback period. If implemented, the recommended ECMs would result in a 13% reduction in
electricity consumption and 5% reduction in natural gas consumption. Additionally, this would result in an annual reduction of 26.9 tons of CO2e, the equivalent to taking approximately 6 cars off the road.
