Are you a business owner or industrial entrepreneur interested in improving your energy conservation and looking for a financial incentive to help with costs? The Lodi Energy Efficiency Financing Pilot Project could be what you are looking for.

Lodi Electric Utility is offering the financing project, and participating customers could earn up to $50,000 in an unsecured, interest-free loan. Qualifying businesses must be in good standing with the city of Lodi for the past 18 months and not have any late payments, said Rob Lechner, manager of customer service and programs for the city of Lodi.

    How about the Lodi residential ratepayers? Don't they again foot the bill for these favor pandering LEUD schemes? That's why Lodi has one of the highest residential rates in the US. I guess businesses like Wine & Roses need solar for better energy efficiency at the residential ratepayers expense?

    I read the article earlier but did not think much of it... but then Roy asked a thoughtful question..."Why"...I couldn’t think of an answer that made sense... so I ask the same question.... Why? Is it part of a city economic strategy to attract and retain more business in Lodi, therefore increasing the tax base? Not likely… so good question Roy… Why?

    Lodi is the first city in the State to offer such an incentive program. Why?
