Lightner holding meeting Tuesday on clean generation finance program


First District Councilwoman Sherri Lightner is hosting an informational meeting to discuss the Mayor’s Clean Generation Program from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Nov. 3 at Standley Middle School Auditorium, 6298 Radcliffe Drive.

Clean generation is a pilot program stemming from the July 2008 passage of California State Assembly Bill 811 allowing municipal governments to provide financing to property owners for renewable-energy installations and energy-efficiency retrofits.

Participating city of San Diego property owners will be provided upfront financing to install solar or other renewable energy-generating devices. The pilot program would allow property owners to finance renewable energy and energy-efficiency improvements through loans that would be repaid as an item on the property owner’s property tax bill.

For more information call the mayor’s office at (619) 236-6330.
