Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, June 23, 2010 7A Lori Bergum (center) receives a $7,500 check from Union Pacific&apos;s Adrian Randolph (left) and Wes Lujan to help fund equipment for the Plumas Community Radio Project. Photo courtesy Plumas Com- munity Radio Project Radio station gets grant Lori Bergum, board mem- ber for the Plumas Commu- nity Radio Project, recently traveled to Roseville to re- ceive a $7,500 grant from the Union Pacific Foundation. The PCRP board has been working throughout the win- ter and spring to raise the funds required to purchase equipment necessary to re- turn to the airwaves in mid- to late summer. The equip- ment will total approximate- ly $40,000 and includes an an- tenna, a transmitter, an ex- citer and an engineering ex- pert to help with installation. The station, formerly known as KHGQ, will broad- cast as KQNY at 91.9 FM. The station will start out with a format similar to the previous one, with some new and some returning DJs as well as a va- riety of musical genres. Additional programming will include local and nation- al forums, news and weather, and educational program- ming to contribute to the sta- tion's "local voice." Union Pacific Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Union Pacific Corporation and Union Pacific Railroad. Union Pacific believes that the quality of life in the com- munities in which its em- ployees live and work is an integral part of its own suc- cess. Originally created as the Union Pacific Railroad Foundation in Omaha, Neb., the foundation has distrib- uted funds since 1959 to qual- ified organizations in com- munities served by Union Pacific. The foundation is not endowed, but is funded each year from the operating profits of Union Pacific Cor- poration. The Plumas Community Radio Project is a non-profit organization. The PCRP board anticipates a slight shortfall in funding. Those interested in learning more or contributing to the equip- ment fund should send in- quiries or checks to P.O.

Appliance deadline extended The Energy Commission voted May 27, to extend the Cash for Appliances rebate program and provided Cali- ::fornia consumers provided CalifOrnia consumers more time to apply for rebates. Previously, the program was to expire May 23. The rebate program will now continue until funds run out and give consumers up to 120 days from the put'chase date to submit their rebate applica- tion by mail. More choices for eligible models were approved last week with an additional 38 clothes washers and 30 re- frigerators added to the total selection of 259 clothes wash- ers, 126 refrigerators and 300 room air conditioners. A complete list of eligible mod- els is available at cash4appliances.org/product s/index.html. The Energy Commission has received more than 31,000 applications with ap- proximately $25 million still available for rebates. Cur- rently, more than $6 million in rebates has been received sumers with appliance pur- to process, chases, recycling their old The California Cash for appliances and completing Appliances rebateAarogram -,their applicati0n:Lckage. A contue's untffare ex-?"lof partners iSile at hausted and rebates are cash4appliances.org/partner awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. A tracker is updated on the remaining amount of funds available at cash4appliances.org. As a result of high demand for energy-efficient appli- ances nationally, more time was needed to deliver pur- chased appliances to con- sumers. Changing the time requirement to submit an ap- plication from 30 days to 120 days and extending the pro- gram beyond the old May 23, deadline allows more partici- pation in the rebate pro- gram. The revised rebate program guidelines is online at ener- gy.ca.gov/business_meetings /index.html. The Energy Commission has partnered with more than 85 Platinum Retail Part- ners and more than 40 Offi- cial Partners to assist con- s/list.html. Consumers are eligible for a rebate when they purchase a qualified highly energy-ef- ficient appliance, properly recycle their old appliance and submit a complete appli- cation package within 120 days of the appliance pur- chase.
