Unallocated Stimulus Funds

Concerned that PEERS might have some trouble because ARRA funds are already spoken for? The Manufacturer’s Alliance says “Au Contraire.” In a May 19, 2009 article titled, Stimulus Funds Begin To Flow Slowly But Manufacturers Will Have a Hard Time Identifying Opportunities, the alliance notes that nearly $500 Billion in stimulus funds have yet to be obligated to a specific role. The goal of the PEERS Alliance is to direct a portion of that money to energy efficient relighting projects.

Energy Efficiency = Energy Surplus

One of the keys to understanding the potential effects of large-scale energy efficiency projects is learning to equate energy efficiency with a potential energy surplus. The link is strongly established in the Hewlett Foundation report “California’s Secret Energy Surplus: The Potential for Energy Efficiency” Prepared by XENERGY Inc. September 23, 2002.
