TopicsXcel Energy / Nexant PartnershipCommercial Real Estate Efficiency Program

On-site Energy Assessment ProgramWhich Program is the best fit?Summary


Xcel Energy and Nexant PartnershipNexant is proud to have supported Xcel Energy for over 15 years and is Xcel Energy’s

Energy Efficiency partner in CO.Nexant executes work on these programs: Commercial Real Estate Efficiency (CREE)On-Site Energy Assessments (EA)Energy Efficient Buildings (EEB)Energy Design Assistance (EDA)

Prescriptive Inspections Custom M&V


CREE – What Is It?

Commercial Real Estate Efficiency (CREE) is a “study-based” Xcel Energy programIntended to incent “hard-to-reach” Xcel customers to enact energy efficiency measures

> 50k sf


> 50% of facility is commercial office

CREE building assessment leads owners to act

Provides the data that enables customers to implement EE measures – and receive higher rebates


CREE – Key FeaturesCREE offers customers:

ASHRAE Level 1 Building AssessmentComprehensive reportCost saving EE measuresProvides LEED Certification data

Benefits of participation:30% additional bonus for measures identified in the reportIncreased rebate cap to 75% of project cost on implemented measures

One-page application begins the simple process


Partnering = Success

CREE Benefits for Vendors:30% Bonus on rebates can help drive projects to implementation

Frees up additional funds for more projectsEnergy Efficiency = Lower Customer Costs = Happy Customer = Return Business

What we can do to help

Walk you through the application process

Help you decide which program is the best fit for you

Follow up with you on next steps and additional energy efficiency needs


On-site EA – Key FeaturesEntry-way program to educate customers on their energy usage and ECOs

Assists customers on critical energy-related decisions Benefits of participation:Offers customers a comprehensive audit at a low costReduced energy costs

One-page application begins the simple processEA offers customers:

Discounted ASHRAE Level 1 building assessment

Customer Cost is only $200 for buildings less than 50,000



$300 fee for buildings greater than 50,000



Larger than 150,000



– inquire for pricing


On-site EA – Key FeaturesOn-site EA is a “study-based” Xcel Energy program

WalkthroughInterviewing facility personnel utility bill review

Identifying Energy Conservation Opportunities (ECOs)ASHRAE Level 1 Audit includes:Energy Star benchmarking score and energy usage


Low-cost/no-cost ECOs (operational based ECOs)

Provides a list of higher cost ECOs (e.g. Lighting, HVAC, motors/VFDs, compressed air, refrigeration etc.)

Energy savings, payback and rebate amount for each ECO

Potential for a Custom Efficiency rebate or study potential

Breaks out energy usage by end uses

Good Program Candidates

Which accounts are good prospects? Annual Energy Spend is high Willing and Receptive Customer

Productive market segments (e.g. healthcare, food)Profitable organizations Organizations with sustainability goals (corporations, city and state government, schools)


Which Program is the better fit?CREE

CRE customer with capital projects under consideration Looking for LEED point Property Manager is new to the building Need in-depth consideration of RCx measures / BAS points

Customer charge of $2,500 not a dissuader (Xcel Energy is flexible when this is charged to customer – budget stream considerations)


Which Program is the better fit?On-site Energy Assessments

Non-CRE customerOr CRE customer deterred by CREE report costCustomer/vendor needs guidance on facility energy uses and potential measures

Need energy benchmarking informationCity code requirement


Partnering = SuccessHow to get started:Check to see if your customer has a specific Xcel Energy account manager

Contact the customer to discuss energy saving opportunitiesWith the help of the account manager and customer, fill out the application


SummaryCREE and On-site Energy Assessment are gateway programs to Xcel Energy rebate programs

Both provide information enabling customers to implement EE measures – and receive rebatesNexant can work with vendors developing energy efficiency projects, incorporating them into the report (where applicable)

CREE provides a 30% bonus on rebates offered through Xcel Energy’s DSM programsEA’s new report format provides decision makers with


information they need in a form they can easily
