Have you ever heard the phrase you've got to spend money to make some. Edenton is getting some cash in order to save some.
The Governor's Office announced Edenton is one of several cities getting federal and renewable energy intiatives. "North Carolina continues to use recovery funds for job creation and energy efficiency,” said Governor Beverly Perdue. “These grants will provide service jobs for local businesses and help local communities save money on utility bills.”
A $30,500 grant will go towards Edenton's historic town hall, to improve insulation and for new lighting. Officials say the energy efficient updates will save more than $4,500 a year.
