Energy Efficiency Plan Flops, Funds Revert to Road Lighting Project

Few residents were interested in a grant that would pay to make their homes over for energy efficiency.


A plan to increase the energy efficiency of Temecula homes flopped, so the city is taking the funding and putting it toward a street light project.

The Temecula voted Tuesday at the to move the money from the Residential Energy Efficiency Loan Project into the fund for a plan that will replace lights at 240 intersections with high-pressure sodium lighting technology, which is more efficient than the ones there now, according to city documents.

The original plan would have given Temecula residents loans to improve the energy efficiency of their homes, according to the document.

"There has been little interest in the program, and of those residents that have expressed an interest, they have not been able to quality for funding under the terms of the program," states the document.

A total of $304,973 was moved into the lighting project's fund.

If they want energy efficiency and long term durability they should go with LED or light emmitting plasma lighting.

JJ Fan, it was still on my computer's desktop, much to my dismay. I just uploaded it. It's no Stephen King novel, but it's there if you want to read it.
