PUBLIC COMMENT – Dave Henshaw, PG&E Account Manager for Placer County, acknowledged the County’s continued efforts in energy efficiency and energy cost reduction. He said PG&E has had an integrated approach with Placer County combining programs stating that since 2007 the County has seen an 18% reduction in energy use representing $450,000 per year in energy savings. Joel Swift, Deputy Director of Facility Services, stated the rebates are through our energy block grant of $600,000 with 32 buildings on the program. Mr. Swift said it’s unique because the Department of Energy pays for purchase of equipment and installation by Facility Services staff.
