CGE Energy: One More Municipality Sustained, 89,000 To GoPosted on in News
Brighton, MI – In supporting local government agencies, like recent project for Garden City DDA, CGE Energy (OTCPink:CGEI) is dedicated to helping municipalities across the U.S. to serve their communities by reducing public energy consumption and generating clean, renewable power. With 89,004 local governments nation-wide, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, and with many agencies within each, CGE Energy sees an immense opportunity to make a difference.
The federal government has mandated the improvement of energy efficiency in federal government buildings and an increase in power supplied by renewable sources. The requirements are expected to reduce the government’s carbon emissions by 40% over the next decade.
In response, CGE Energy has just released its CGE Sustain program, which allows municipalities to implement energy efficiency and renewable energy upgrades at municipal buildings and roadways with immediate positive cash flow and no upfront costs. All maintenance and ongoing servicing is included to reduce a local government’s expense budget.
Local governments typically need to issue administrative intensive bonds, apply for grants, or seek traditional bank loans to install an energy upgrade. With CGE Sustain, eligible institutions can enjoy substantial energy savings, lessen lengthy RFP processes and have no upfront costs.
In a society increasingly focused on environmental responsibility, public sector institutions are ideal candidates for leadership in new energy technology. When the primary responsibility of government is to serve the community, it is critical for energy choices to be grounded in both sustainability and fiscal responsibility. CGE Energy has created their Sustain program to help meet those needs.
The CGE Sustain program is another solution to add to CGE Energy’s long history of serving local governments. According to their released success stories, some of these projects include 2 million square feet of the Michigan Capital Complex, 41 Michigan State Police posts, as well as many city halls, fire stations, libraries, civic centers and streetlighting projects.
To conclude, streetlighting alone represents enough energy consumption needed to power almost 2 million homes each year. There are an estimated 26 million streetlights in the United States, and the conversion from conventional street lighting to LED technology has only approached approximately 10% saturation of existing U.S. street lighting.
