LITTLE ROCK (KFSM) – Energy efficiency policies and technologies at the state capitol building saved Arkansas taxpayers $88,000, according to a news release from Arkansas Secretary of State Mark Martin.

On Jan. 8, Martin said he received an $88,246 incentive check from Entergy Arkansas’ Entergy Solutions Large Commercial and Industrial Program.

“We will continue to work to preserve the resources of the Natural State at the capitol by implementing programs to provide both cost savings to taxpayers, as well as, help to protect the environment,” Martin said.

“The Entergy Solutions Large Commercial and Industrial Solutions Program helps customers save energy and money by providing technical assistance to identify facility improvement recommendations and financial incentives based on the total amount of energy the higher efficient equipment will save,” the release states.

Some of the high-efficient items installed at the building include chillers, variable frequency drives, chiller controls and highly efficient interior and exterior lighting.

    They may have saved that much vs. before but what they don’t tell you is how much they had to spend in order to achieve this I’m sure its in the millions so the taxpayer in all reality didn’t save a thing. You can keep a gas guzzling car thats completely paid for or pay 30,000 for one that is a gas saver….well 30,000 will put a heck of a lot of gas in your gas guzzler which is already payed for same concept here.
