1 School District No. 23 (Central Okanagan) 2015 Carbon Neutral Action Report As the finalized, This Carbon Neutral Action Report for the period January 1st, 2015 to December 31st, 2015 summarizes our emissions profile, the total offsets to reach net-zero emissions, the actions we have taken in 2015 to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and our plans to continue reducing emissions in 2016 and beyond. By June 30th, 2015, the School District No.23 final CNAR will be posted to our website at One of our foremost accomplishments is that SD23 has lowered its greenhouse gas emissions by 26 per cent below 2007 levels. British Columbia s Greenhouse Gas Reduction Targets Act (GGRTA) legislated in 2007 by the Province of British Columbia, the GGRTA requires all of BC s public sector organizations (PSOs) by law to be carbon neutral by 2010 this includes all BC school districts and post-secondary institutions. The GGRTA sets aggressive targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs). In 2007, Environment Minister Barry Penner announced that the B.C. Government has reviewed and accepted the recommendations of the Climate Action Team (CAT) for interim greenhouse gas reduction (GHG) targets. School District No.23 is well on track to meet our 2020 GHG targets. GHG reduction target; 6 per cent below 2007 levels by per cent below 2007 levels by per cent below 2007 levels by P age

2 In 2015, the compressed natural gas (CNG) school bus fleet expands and continues to hold the promise in reducing carbon emissions and saving Diesel costs. CNG school buses are also appealing because the maintenance on these engines is reduced and the slow-fill fueling system is efficient by saving labour hours. Currently, CNG is priced 25% less than diesel. The price of a diesel litre equivalent (DGE) of CNG has become increasingly lower than the price of a litre of diesel. Although the market price of natural gas was fairly volatile in the previous decade, it is expected to stabilize at a level highly competitive with diesel. It now appears the price of natural gas has decoupled from diesel prices. Although financial viability is an important determinant of the achievable potential, several of these segments/scenarios have other important advantages that improve CNG School Buses prospects. For example, the environmental advantage of a CNG School Bus is calculated at 19% in greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions. In the context of operating vehicles in the Okanagan Valley, these environmental advantages translate into health advantages which can be fundamental to our environmentally conscious citizens. In 2015, continuing old boilers replacement with condensing boilers results in less natural gas used. Highly efficient made in British Columbia condensing boilers use less fuel and have lower running costs than other boilers. Higher efficiency levels are made possible by extracting heat contained in the combustion gases, which would otherwise have been lost to the atmosphere. Constable Neil Bruce Middle School Condensing Boiler project achieved an amazing 45% natural gas reduction level the first year of operations. Energy saving equivalent of one 350 student school per year of natural gas usage. A total of 900Gj of natural gas was saved. It is concluded that some standardized low temperature boiler designs and good maintenance practices, as well as the development of control standards for energy demand and greenhouse gas emissions are necessary to improve the energy efficiency in all school buildings. School District 23 is committed to learn from these energy results and share its knowledge in a collaborative environment. In 2016, LED lighting upgrades will reduce SD23's electrical consumption. LED lighting projects are estimated to reduce the exterior lighting energy costs for those facilities by 80%. School District 23 is excited about the significant energy savings we will achieve and the positive impact on our annual operational costs as a result of this electrical energy initiative. 2 P age

Saving enough natural gas used to heat a small 350 elementary school. What are the barriers your organization faces when trying to implement emissions reduction initiatives? It is expected that funding is a major issue. If there are other barriers as well please describe those below: Choosing between advanced lighting technology to save on electricity and the overwhelming environmental pressure of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Provide a "wish list" of reduction actions your organization would like to take, i.e. what are the priority projects your organization sees as being most effective in leading to substantive reductions of emissions and increased energy efficiency (regardless of cost or other limiting factors)? Changing light fixtures and/or LED tubes and ballasts is high on our wish list. Advanced lighting technology currently available could save our school district 1/2 million utility dollars annually.
