These funds were available to municipalities <br />through a federal grant agreement with the U.S. Department of Energy, and were intended to <br />help fund energy efficiency projects. Parking lot lighting was selected as a potential energy <br />retrofit project, and staff applied for grant_ funding in January 2010. <br />In September 2010, the Town was awarded a grant from EECBG in the amount of $162,712. <br />Staff worked with the California Energy Commission to select energy efficient lighting options <br />suitable for municipal parking lots and playgrounds areas across the Town. A total of 176 energy <br />efficient lighting fixtures and bulbs were installed in 16 different Town -owned parking lots and <br />parks. These lighting upgrades are estimated to save the Town over 56,000 kilowatt hours of <br />power per year, resulting in an annual savings of approximately $7,000 in energy costs. <br />PREPARED BY: TODD CAPURSO <br />Director of Parks and Public Works <br />Reviewed by: Assistant Town Manager (% Town AttorneLFinance <br />N:\ PPW\ MANAGEMENT \COUNCIL \COUNCIL REPORTS\2012 Reports\Aug 6\Energy Efficient lighting project Final.Acceptance.docx <br />
