How much does it take to change the lightbulbs at a Veterans Home in New York?

$109.5 million.

To be fair, it's not just for light bulbs. They are putting in more effecient motors, too. All for just $109.5 million of your money.

These figures come from the Administration's own report on stimulus funding.
The New York State Veteran’s Home at St. Alban’s, in Jamaica, New York, is using $109.5 million in Recovery Act spending to install more efficient motors, variable speed drive units, lighting, ballasts, lighting sensors, daylight sensors and to replace incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs. All of these improve the energy efficiency of the facility, lower costs, and lessen its impact on the environment.
Thanks to Bill Allison at the Sunlight Foundation for bringing this to light.
