The author comments on the debate over the proposal to use the $1 million from a discontinued energy program for another energy program which would improve energy efficiency for low-income residents of Southern Nevada. The author provides an overview of the energy program. The author commends the proposal of consumer advocate Eric Witkoski of using the money into weatherizing low income homes. The author relates that utility staffers objected to Witkowski's proposal claiming that rules prohibit changing the energy conservation budget until 2009.
