GREENFIELD — Several city buildings are getting new, energy-efficient lighting, and Greenfield’s electric superintendent says more government agencies and businesses could take advantage of a money-saving program through the state.
The city is getting rebates on new fluorescent lighting at two city garages through Energizing Indiana, a program of the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission.
Because city employees are installing the lights themselves and rebates for the switch are high, the move costs nothing for the city, said electric superintendent Nelson Castrodale. In fact, because of the switch the city will be saving money on energy years down the road.
