Our Areas of Growth BUILDING INNOVATION Campus Crest is committed to continually improving the way we design and construct our buildings for optimal health, comfort, efficiency, and safety. In 2012, we completed a redesign of our prototype building (to be implemented on 2013 construction starts) to align with LEED and ENERGY STAR. We also installed solar at select properties across our portfolio with more in the pipeline.
Solar Energy at The Grove BUILDING INNOVATION What & Why Benefits Who Renewable energy projects at Campus Crest kicked off in 2012 with installation of two photovoltaic systems: 629 kW system in Greeley, Colorado which is estimated to provide 40-50% of annual energy use, and a 929 kW system in Flagstaff, Arizona, estimated to provide 50-60% of the annual energy use at this property. We have also committed to a PV installation at our property in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Once these programs are running, we will have installed over 2.6 megawatts (MW) electrical capacity, enough to power 260 single-family homes. ENVIRONMENTAL • Decrease demand on oil & coal production Campus Crest Development Campus Crest Construction Ted Rollins Brian Sharpe Andrew Young SolarCity SOCIAL Where • Support the growing renewable energy industry, which currently only produced 7% of the total energy in the US in 2010, according to the U.S. EIA. Flagstaff,AZ Greeley, CO Las Cruces, NM • Decrease the overall electricity demand & impact on existing municipal utility grids Timeline These two projects are just the beginning of a company-wide goal to increase energy independence. To further this goal, the Campus Crest prototype redesign project (also a 2012 initiative) includes modifications to the roof design, building envelope, and HVAC systems to decrease overall energy demand and more easily support solar installations at all new developments. 75% Construct Implementation in Greeley, CO 25% Implemen 50% Exploration in Las Cruces, NM 50% Implemen 25% 260 75% 50% =10 Planning in Flagstaff, AZ Exploration in Fort Collins, CO 50% Design in Philade 50% Planning in Tempe Planning Implementation Tracking Completion grove apartments
Redesigning Our Prototype Building Innovation What & Why Benefits Who We evaluated our prototypical building to examine opportunities for increased energy and water efficiency. Populus, LLC conducted energy audits at three properties (Waco, Denton, and Abaline) to evaluate our existing buildings and identify opportunities for construction and operational improvements. Populus, LLC also conducted a plan and drawing review to align our construction details with Energy Star v3 best practices. During two full day workshop events, the team members used the audit results, energy modeling, and life cycle cost estimates to evaluate and incorporate improvements.
