The Department ranking of this project:
10. The Department will rank their projects 1 through the lowest ranked project (i.e., If 5 projects were submitted by the Department a ranking of 1 would be assigned to the most important or most needed project and a ranking of 5 would be the least needed project). 5
11. Has this project been previously requested in a prior CIP? No
12. SPWD 4 digit Building No. (for existing buildings) 2106
13. Facility Condition Analysis Project No. (if recommended) 9889
14. Is the property State Owned? Yes
15. If the facility is existing, is it State owned? Yes
II. Narrative Section 
1. Project Description: Upgrade parking lot lights to higher efficiency LED exterior lights with solar panels for power.
2. Project Justification: The Veterans Home Parking Lot is currently illuminated by thirty-four 400 watt metal halide type light posts. The project goal is to realize energy saving (as opposed to purchasing power through the utility company). Amortized over years of use, new solar lights will pay for themselves.
3. Project Background Information: The Nevada State Veterans Home is an 85,000 square foot 180 bed long term care facility governed by multiple federal regulations including 42 CFR 483 - Requirements for States and Long Term Care facilities and 38 CFR 51.60 - Standards applicable for payment of per diem. CFR 483.70 and CFR 51.70 require that the facility be designed, constructed, equipped, and maintained to protect the health and safety of residents, personnel, and the public. Although the Veterans Home didn't begin admitting residents until August of 2002, construction of the facility was largely completed in late 1999. This item was noted in a recent facility condition analysis performed by State Public Works.
4. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
a. Type of equipment to be replaced: 400 Watt Metal Halide Fixture
b. Year existing equipment was installed: 1999
c. Manufacturer of existing equipment: LSI Lighting Systems
d. Model of existing equipment: Hilton
e. Are there any known hazardous material abatement? No
5. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): The Veterans Home parking lot lights use a large amount of electricity. The cost to run Qty 34-400 watt lights, 12 hours a day, 365 days a year, @ a rate .11 KWH (Boulder City Electricity Rate) total $6552.00 per year in energy cost. This Project provides conversion to solar power, an abundant source of energy. Solar power is an abundant source of energy that can be converted directly into electricity to power the parking lot lights.
Health, Life Safety, and/or Legal Issues
6. Please describe any health, life safety, and/or legal issues that will be resolved by completing this project (Short Essay): none
7. Proposed Project Schedule Impacts/Issues
a. Will this project require relocating personnel or vacating the building for any period of time? No
b. Has any design work been completed on the proposed project? No
c. What is the latest date this project could be completed without disrupting your program? 06/30/2017
d. What is the driving proposed completion date? This project would upgrade lighting, thereby, increasing energy efficieny. This project or a portion thereof was previously recommended in the FCA report dated 2/23/2005. It has been amended accordingly to reflect conditions obsered during the most recent survey date of 12/08/11.
