Gov. Beshear announces “Green Bank”

Wednesday, Sept. 9, 2009

GreenbankLast week, Gov. Steve Beshear visited KET’s network center to announce the establishment of a multi-million dollar financing program to make public buildings more energy efficient. The governor’s program, the “Green Bank of Kentucky,” is designed to reduce costs and create “green collar” jobs.

The program will allow state government energy-efficiency projects to compete for low-interest loans that can be paid back through the energy savings generated. KET is one of the first sites expected to submit a loan application to the Green Bank.

“It is a rare opportunity for us to launch a program with such a potentially dramatic effect on creating jobs and protecting the environment,” Gov. Beshear said. “It is fitting that we launch the Green Bank at the site of one of the state’s true gems, KET, because it demonstrates that when we save on energy costs, those dollars can be shifted to fund our state’s critical needs, such as education.”
