APS to crack down on energy waste, again.

Every lean budget year, when the leadership of the APS needs to show stakeholders that they can do something to cut waste, APS announces a crack down on "energy waste".

Their solution, of course, grows the oligarchy. They want to hire an independent energy consultant. The Journal would have you believe the whole thing is saving you money, link;

APS is soliciting bids for a contractor to examine the district's energy practices and look for ways to save. The contractor's pay will be based on how much APS saves in energy costs.
The whole truth is, regardless of how much money you are "saving", you are paying for the solution. There is no one in the entire leadership of the APS who can complete this task.

The fact that in that entire building they don't have someone, already earning north of $100K a year, can't figure out to turn off the lights when you leave a room, escaped the Journal's notice.

Energy savings are of course, more complex than that,
but not so complex that an administration costing taxpayers
millions and millions of dollars already, cannot be expected
to be able to handle it in house.

We have paid enough already for administrative "expertise".
We should spend more tax dollars underwriting their
corruption and incompetence.
