Reducing Emissions Could Cost Arlington $6 Million

The cost of Arlington County, Virginia’s new plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions could top $6 million, the Washington Post reports. Arlington hopes to reduce the county’s greenhouse gas emissions by 10 percent by 2012.

County officials estimated that, in addition to spending $5 million in the next five years to improve energy efficiency in its public buildings, Arlington will spend more than $400,000 in the coming months to plant 1,200 trees, buy more wind-generated power, hand out more than 2,000 fluorescent light bulbs at fairs and other events and provide free energy audits of more than a dozen homes. County officials also want to give residents who buy hybrid cars a break on their personal property tax.
