kWh/month. In California it is 562 kWh/month. In Los Angeles it is about 480 kWh/month. Two-thirds from fossil fuels. Less than 12% from renewables - 12 - Californias Electricity Current California law requires that 33% of electricity comes from renewable sources by 2020.

In October 2015, Governor Brown signed SB 350, which now sets a goal of 50% of CA utilities power coming from renewable energy by 2030. - 13 - Your electricity use Southern California Edison has installed smart (digital) meters for their customers.

- 30 - Defrost manual freezer regularly Home Energy Saver Online Tool Computerized Energy Audit A powerful tool - 31 - Air Conditioning Air conditioner equipment power in the U.S. is described in terms of "tons of refrigeration".

= cooling power of 1 ton (2,000 pounds) of ice melting in a 24-hour period 1 ton AC = 12,000 BTU per hour, or 3517 watts Residential central air systems are usually from 1 to 5 tons (3 to 20 kW). Air conditioners should be sized properly to avoid wasting energy by cycling too often. Rule of thumb: One ton per 700-1200 sq ft of floor space (700 for home with avg. air tightness, R-values etc.) (1200 for high R-values, sun-blocking features etc.) - 32 - Air Conditioning In the US, the efficiency of air conditioners is rated by the seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER). The higher the SEER rating, the more energy efficient.

SEER rating = BTU of cooling output during normal annual usage divided by the total electric energy input in Wh during the same period. SEER = BTU/Wh = (BTU / h) W, where "W" is the average electrical power in Watts, and (BTU/h) is the rated cooling power. e.g.) A 1-ton AC unit (12000 BTU/h), with a SEER of 12, consumes 12000/12 = 1000 Watts of power on average. Assuming 1000 hours of operation during a typical cooling season (i.e., 8 hours per day for 125 days per year), the energy consumed = 1000 W 1000 h = 1,000,000 Wh = 1,000 kWh New SEER standard is 13. - 33 -

Lighting Efficiencies: Incandescent: 10% efficient (90% of energy is lost as heat) CFLs: About 75% more efficient LEDs: 85-90% more efficient Payback: CFLs: less than one year LEDs: about 3 years CFL LEDs Lifetime savings: CFLs: $45 (9 years) LEDs: $150 (25 years)
