There is some new money that will soon be made available for energy efficiency.
The Kansas State Energy office, a Division of the Kansas Corporation Commission, will receive approximately $52-million in additional funding from the Department of Energy.
The funding comes through three different federal programs:
• $38,284,000 through the State Energy Program
• $9,593,500 through Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block AND
• $2.6 million for a new Appliance Rebate Program
Some of the programs are still in the planning phases and will need final approval from the Department of Energy before they become available to the public.
The programs are a part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
For more information about any of these energy efficiency programs and how they affect you, call the North Central Kansas Regional Planning Commission in Beloit at 738-2218.
