Does your house never get quite cool enough, no matter how much you run that air conditioner? How old is your water heater? Is there enough insulation in your attic? Unless you work in construction or are an electrician, you may have no idea.

The city of Lodi is starting a new program next week to help homeowners learn just how much energy their homes are wasting, and provide some money to solve the problem.

    What does Lechner mean by "wishy-washy folks"? And why should anyone have to pay 200 to 400 up front to qualify for a rebate? What's wishy-washy is that if they say they don't want to make the changes right now the city will cut the up front fee to $200 from $400? Sounds like another water meter fiasco to me. With the average cost of electricity in the nation at 9 cents kwh, it's now wonder that Lodi has the highest residential electric rates in the country at 22-33 cents kwh. Some entities are still at 6 cents kwh. I guess that's how Lechner and Kirkley, along with the other overpaid LEUD upper echelon keep their fat salaries and perks with those 33 cents kwh residential rates? I suppose many of the good old boys and their slum rentals they own will be the beneficiaries of many of those 6400 rebates? Good brainstorm Lodi city council and Lechner?

    GreenHome Solutions is a fantastic company. The energy savings are worth every penny.

    The "free money," I suspect, Mr. Kindseth, comes from the outrageous and scandalously high rates we pay COL for electric and, now water.
