Estimated Four to five weeks ago the State apparently applied to re allocate funds to a grant for an ethanol and a methane plant. The state did not inform its Auditors, participating utilities, contractors, municipalities or Kansas residents of this. At the same time, Auditors, by the direction of the state energy office were informed we needed to increase the amount of loans to keep the ARRA funds. We did this. In the last 3 months we have completed 2739+ audits. Each approval letter from the state contains a loan amount and an ID number, which is the running total of audits to date.
At the same time as the state energy office at the direction of the Governor’s office was reallocating funds, they were with holding this information and presenting to the public that they had approved loan amounts which would be funded by this very same money. This is the math: 2700 (audits completed) X $7000.00 (average loan amount)= $18,900,000.00. This amount belongs to those people who received letters of approval until their Efficiency Kansas audit expires 1 year from the date of their audit. The Efficiency Kansas manual on line corroborates this information.
