General Municipal (GMU)
The legislature finds and declares that it is the policy of the state to achieve statewide energy efficiency and renewable energy goals, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate the effect of global climate change, and advance a clean energy economy; and that to achieve such policy and goals the state must promote the deployment of renewable energy systems and energy efficiency measures throughout the state; and that municipalities would fulfill an important public purpose by providing loans to property owners for the installation of renewable energy systems and energy efficiency measures.
