To expand the things counties can spend money on under a scheme that lets them contract with vendors for energy efficiency projects on their facilities and pay for these with money the projects are supposed to save (or from regular tax revenue if savings don’t appear). The bill would allow vendor installment contract durations of up to 20 years, allow locals enter to spend on information technology and utility projects they assert are related to the energy saving scheme, expand the types of deals they can make with vendors to include “lease-purchase” agreements.
