Dallas ISD 2020 Bond Proposal: Geothermal, Renewable Energy, and Sustainability

 

Dallas Morning News article from Thu 2/13/20 has a table in the print and epaper versions including the following under the highest price tag ($3.7 billion option) adds:

1) Geothermal replacement - Includes: Replacing systems at seven schools; Cost estimate: $16.7 million.

Does anyone know, or know where to find details such as which schools, what exactly is being replaced and what they are being replaced with? 

During NTREG’s Jan 2020 field trip to Lady Bird Johnson Middle School in Irving there was some discussion of this, but the Irving ISD official said they are enthusiastic about their geothermal system and Frisco indicates the District has utilized geothermal heat pump systems and energy recovery ventilation in all facilities opening after 2003.

2) Green building funds – Includes: Renewable energy and sustainability efforts; Cost estimate: $10 million.

Details?

Note: These don’t include whatever may be included in the base package item for Facilities – Includes: Building improvements districtwide for new roofs, improved access for the disabled and replacing aging systems like fire alarm HV/Acs; Cost estimate: $572 million

Thanks Jim.  Interesting.  My wife Susan agrees, she is not a born again tree-hugger like me but she is underwriting council for a large property title insurance company.

Thanks for the info, Jim. The wording is clear enough that even I can understand it.

Feb 8 Meeting & Voting Deadline

Dan - NTREG Advisor
 

Have you voted for our Executive Board?  Voting deadline is tonight at midnight!  https://www.ntreg.org/elections-2020-2.shtml
(Ballots are completely confidential.)
 
--------------
 
NTREG meeting tomorrow.  Saturday's weather forecast is perfect for getting outside!
 
Solar energy systems help reduce consumption of utility power.  Much of our utility power is generated by burning natural gas and coal.  In turn, this produces carbon dioxide and other gases.  How does "methane" fit into the picture?  Where does it come from?  What effect does methane have on our atmosphere and climate?
 
Our  February meeting will answer these and other questions.
 
What: NTREG Monthly Meeting
 
When: Saturday, February 8, 2020
 
Time: 10:00 am - 12:00 noon
 
Where: Midway Hills Christian Church, 11001 Midway Road, Dallas, Texas. (Map on our website.)
Our meetings are held in the Fellowship Hall (accessible through the church main entry or from the rear parking area).
 
Topic: "The Impact of Methane on Our Climate & What We Can Do About It."
 
Presenter: Sharon Wilson, Senior Organizer with Earthworks.

The Future Of US Solar Is Bright: Forbes Feb 3 2020 by Joshua Rhodes

 

“This is the first of a multi-part series on the state of the main sources of energy in the US and how they compare globally. The series will cover solar, wind, oil & gas, coal, nuclear, and geothermal (so far) and will answer the same four questions for each.”

1.   How big is the US solar industry, and what is its growth trajectory?

2.   Which US states lead in solar?

3.   What are the biggest challenges faced by the solar sector today?

4.   How does the US solar sector compare globally?

https://www.forbes.com/sites/joshuarhodes/2020/02/03/the-us-solar-industry-in-2020

Notes:

On one hand, many consider EIA projections for renewables to be way too low, especially considering the trend towards state renewable portfolio standards.  On the other hand, one needs to be careful about what is likely to actually get built compared to what is proposed.  In TX the ERCOT interconnection queues include projects with signed interconnection agreements but separate those with “Financial Security Posted” from those with none. 

As an example, a recent article says “More than 645 MW of solar capacity in the Electric Reliability Council of Texas neared commercial operation in January, which will boost the state's solar nameplate capacity by more than 28% when that capacity comes online, though solar projects totaling 380 MW were canceled in the month, a new report shows.”……

Disclaimers: Joshua is on the board of the Texas Solar Energy Society, which is the parent organization for NTREG.  I had better luck opening the Forbes article in the Chrome browser than Edge (on my Windows 10 PC).


Dallas CECAP Draft: Intro and General

 

The Dallas Comprehensive Environmental and Climate Action Plan draft is available for download in an online forum for public comment and response by Dallas staff and others.

Per committee presentations (references below) the review period is Feb 3 - March 3.  Staff hopes for council (committee?)  review of the full draft plan on April 6, in time for adoption of a Climate Resolution and the plan on Earth Day April 22 and launch at EarthX April 23 – 26.

https://www.dallasclimateaction.com/forum 

For background including a presentation (which downloads as a pdf) on “CECAP: Protecting Water Resources and Communities from Flood & Drought”, see the Jan 6, 2020 environment and Sustainability Committee meeting agenda.

For background including a pdf presentation on “CECAP: Resilient and Energy Efficient Buildings powered by Sustainable, Renewable, Energy”, see the Feb 3, 2020 Environment and Sustainability Committee meeting agenda (which also contains an excellent related presentation on “Green Buildings, Sustainable Building Strategies in Dallas”).

A presentation on “Urban Agriculture/ Zero Waste” is planned for the same committee March 2.

Agendas and meeting descriptions are available online.  Click on “Date: This Month” for a pulldown to select “2020” to see more than the current month:

Recordings of these meetings:

If discussions are grouped around topics (subject lines in email) following the forum sections (which appear to be aligned with the draft appendix C goals) it will (in my opinion) be easier to find them later (on the groups.io website).  This table also suggests potential Output and Outcome metrics, which might be a good way to frame comments.

- Buildings (3 subsections)
- Energy (3 subsections)
- Transportation (4 subsections)
- Solid Waste (3 subsections)
- Water Resources (3 subsections)
- Ecosystems/Green Spaces (3 subsections)
- Urban Agriculture (3 subsections)
- Air Quality (1 subsections)


Re: buy back recommendations

We have Green Mountain with our solar. We have checked several times over the years to see if there is a better deal for us, but we have always decided to stick with them.

Marianne,

We have Chariot Energy, but no solar panels on the roof yet. They supposedly pay back the same as you pay, not including Oncor fees. That may or may not be a good deal. You can check it out and let me know how that works if you go with them. Our plan is to add solar power this year and stay with Chariot.

My Oncor project has been accepted, hopefully it will be approved and funded🤗
Now I need to shop for a provider that will buy back my excess production.
Any recommendations?

Ryan, Typically attended by NTREG Board members and other NTREG members.  As TXSES is the "Mother Ship" of NTREG it is an important event. Over the years, the venue varies with a view to meet in a central location (typically Austin area).  Georgetown was one my favorite meeting locations.  Ditto College Station.  NTREG hosted one year at Trinity Audubon Center.  I'm not personally committed to attend this year's meeting but sure that car pool opportunities abound.  Highly recommended.
