Towne House Apartments is an 8-storey residential building located in Edmonton, AB that was constructed in 1968. 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 1.29 GJ/m², which is 42% higher than the median Energy Star EUI for this type of building. After completing a site visit, 3D Energy was able to identify 5 different energy conservation and renewable energy measures. Of the 5 measures analyzed, 3D Energy recommended implementation of 4 measures that would save approximately $60,525 a year with a simple payback of 6 years. These measures included lighting upgrades, programmable thermostats, and low flow fixtures. The remaining conservation measure was not recommended due to a long payback period. If implemented, the recommended ECMs would result in a 22% reduction in
electricity consumption and an 11% reduction in natural gas consumption. Additionally, this would result in an annual reduction of 70.2 tons of CO2e, the equivalent to taking approximately 15 cars off the road.
