WV City Expects Energy Usage Reduction Project to Cover Its Own Cost

Beckley Mayor Emmett Pugh says a $1.2 million project to reduce the city's energy usage will more than pay for itself.

Pugh tells The Register-Herald that the project will save the city more than $90,000 annually in energy and operational costs.

The project stems from an energy audit conducted last November. Pugh says the audit's recommendations will be implemented this summer. They include upgrading interior lighting in all city buildings and improvements to traffic lights and decorative street lighting.
