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.
Businesses conducting HVAC replacements, process equipment change-outs, lighting retrofits and other energy-efficient upgrades could qualify for the program.
The city of Lodi is the first municipality in California to offer such a program, Lechner said.
"We're not required to do this," Lechner said. "But we decided we want an added tool in our handbag to pursue energy conservation management."
The pilot project is available on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, call the Lodi Electric Utility at 333- 6800, ext. 2583.
