Obama Administration Awards More Than $13 Million for WV's Energy Program more than $16 million in additional funding, for a total of more than $32 million. West Virginia will use its SEP fund- ing provided by the Recovery Act to implement six programs to improve energy efficiency in state buildings. These programs will fund upgrades in state administrative office buildings, correctional facilities, hospitals, health care facilities, laboratories, schools, colleges and universities, and armor- ies. Upgrades will include replacing or improving lighting systems, win- dows, HVAC systems, boilers, and control systems. West Virginia will also create the Energy Efficiency for Businesses Revolving Loan Program to provide financial assistance to busi- nesses to support energy efficiency investments. SEP funding will also go toward creating a Green Collar Jobs Training program to provide West Virginians with the education, training and skills necessary for employment in the fields of energy efficiency and renewable energy. Under the Recovery Act, DOE ex- panded the types of activities eligible for State Energy Program funding, which include energy audits, building retrofits; education and training ef- forts, transportation programs to in- crease the use of alternative fuels and hybrid vehicles, and new financing mechanisms to promote energy effi- ciency and renewable energy invest- ments. The American Recovery and Rein- vestment Act appropriated $3.1 bil- lion to the State Energy Program to help achieve national energy inde- pendence goals and promote local economic recovery. States use these grants at the state and local level to create green jobs, address state energy priorities, and adopt emerging renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies. Transparency and accountability are important priorities for SEP and all Recovery Act projects. Through- out the program's implementation, DOE will provide strong oversight at the local, state, and national level, while emphasizing with states the need to quickly award funds to help create new jobs and stimulate local econo- mies. check written to The Common Place.

U.S. Department of Energy Secre- tary Steven Chu recently announced $13. l million in Recovery Act fund- ing to support energy efficiency and renewable energy projects in West Virginia. Under DOE's State Energy Pro- gram, West Virginia proposed a state- wide plan that prioritizes energy sav- ings, creates or retains jobs, increases the use of renewable energy, and re- duces greenhouse gas emissions. This initiative is part of the Obama Administration's national strategy to support job growth, while making a historic down payment on clean en- ergy and conservation. "This funding will provide an im- portant boost for state economies, help put Americans back to work, and move us toward energy independence," said Secretary Chu. "It reflects our com- mitment to support innovative state and local strategies to promote en- ergy efficiency and renewable energy while insisting that taxpayer dollars be spent responsibly." "The Recovery Act funding we are putting to use through this energy efficiency program will help to create and retain jobs immediately, while reducing our energy consumption and state government energy costs and allowing us to meet our goal of energy independence in the long run," said Gov. Joe Manchin. "The revolving loan fund will also help other partners reduce their energy consumption and encourage jobs in the growing green energy sector." Secretary Chu recently announced a total of more than $96 million for State Energy Programs in four states: Ohio, Oregon, Virginia and West Vir- ginia. Each of the states is receiving 40 percent of their total State Energy Program (SEP) funding authorized under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. With this announcement, West Vir- ginia will now have received 50 per- cent of its total Recovery Act SEP funding. The initial ten percent of funding was previously available to support planning activities; the re- maining 50 percent of funds will be released once it meets reporting, over- sight, and accountability milestones required by the Recovery Act. After demonstrating successful implemen- tation of its plan, the state will receive Thursday, July 16, 2009 -- The Glenville Democrat Page 13 Longtime Gilmer County businessman, Berl Kimble, succumbs on Tues.; funeral set for Stump's on Thurs.

BOE authorizes Bennett to make progress cont'd ... Continued from page 1 and Mr. Larry Butcher is Vice-President. Appointment of Committees was next, and Board members concurred that each one would remain on his or her current committees. President Starkey serves on the Finan- cial Audit Committee; Board member Rhoades, on the RESA VII Board; Vice President Butcher, on the Career Center Board and the 4-H Council; Board mem- ber Misty Pritt, on the Legislation 55 Committee; and Board Member Alton Skinner, on the Safety Access Commit- tee. Setting meeting dates was the next or- der of business, the Board members agree- ing on the second and fourth Mondays of each month. Following these actions, Board mem- bers adjourned the Statutory Meeting, and opened the regularly scheduled Board meeting. Regular Meeting Begins The Board unanimously approved the minutes for the June 22, 2009 regular meeting. They moved on to hear reports from officers, boards, and standing com- mittees. Superintendent Bennett presented his information to the Board. In part, he announced the pending re- tirement of Mrs. Bonnie Archer, who re- quested her retirement become effective Men., Aug. 31, 2009. The Superintendent requested the Board members authorize him to expedite sev- eral matters pertinent in keeping the Troy and Sand Fork Elementary schools open. He asked that the Board authorize him to post for bidding the description of work to be done at Troy Elementary, if any is required. Bennett also asked that the Board mem- bers allow him to sign a contract with WVU's engineers. He sought the Board's approval for him to purchase a new travel trailer to be used as office space at Sand Fork Elementary. This trailer is eight feet wide, and 33 feet long, is brand new, and will cost the Board only $ 1,000. The Superintendent also asked for the "go-ahead" to place a modular at Sand Fork Elementary. This unit would be uti- lized as classroom space for the fifth and sixth grades. He further went on to explain to the Board that it would be more financially advantageous to rent the subject modular, rather than purchase it. Unfinished Business Board members unanimously gave Superintendent Bennett the authority to sign a contract with WVU engineers for the structural analyses and assessments. If either of the buildings is found to be structurally unsound, then WVU's engi- neering team will be requested to make recommendations to remediate the prob- lems. Gaining forward momentum The Board unanimously approved the authorization of Superintendent Bennett to purchase the travel trailer for use as office space at Sand Fork Elementary, placement of a modular at that same school for fifth and sixth grade classrooms, and to immediately post an advertisement for bidding, pertaining to work needed to make Troy and/or Sand Fork structurally sound. After those votes, Board Member Alton Skinner asked the rest of the Board, as well as the Superintendent, about progress towards meeting the requirement of a two- hour fi rewall between the gymnasium and the main building at Normantown.
