New Lima Energy Special Improvement District would help businesses fund energy upgrades

Several groups are working together to help Lima create an Energy Special Improvement District (ESID) so businesses can get help funding “utility and energy efficiency improvements,” The Lima News reports. Lima City Council “will vote on approving” the ESID recently created “under the lead of the Lima/Allen County Chamber of Commerce,” according to the article. Chamber President and CEO Jed Metzger said, “[t]o do an energy improvement district, you have to have a lead organization . . . to do the energy audit” and to do the energy upgrades. The district “would work with the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority to secure funds for small businesses to improve such areas as lighting and heat as well as energy efficiency improvements, such as new windows or even roof work.” For more, read the full article.
