Energy Conservation Competition – Reporting Adjustment

Thanks to all who participated in the first annual energy competition.

The results were inadvertently reported prior to adjusting the data for the number of heating degree days (HDD). HDD are a day in which the average outside air temperature is less than 65 degrees Fahrenheit, resulting in higher energy use to heat a building.

Approximately 10 percent more heating degree days (HDD) occurred during 2012 compared to the baseline period in 2011. After factoring in the increased number of HDD, the overall standings remain the same but the comparisons against 2011 electricity usage are more favorable.

  • Conmy reduced electrical usage by 8 percent rather than exceeding by 9 percent
  • Tocik reduced electrical usage by 1 percent rather than exceeding by 16 percent
  • Aviat exceeded 2011 usage by 10 percent rather than by 29 percent
