Going Off the Grid

With gas prices high this summer and a big election coming up in the fall (as well as all the global warming talk!), energy efficiency is a huge topic. We hear a lot about what can’t be done, but one town is doing it!

The town of Rock Port, MO (northwest Missouri) has done something many thought impossible – gone off the grid. In the article Missouri Town is Running on Vapor – And Thriving, we learn about how this small town has used four turbines to bring power to its 1300 citizens.

Yes, it’s a small step, but it’s a great example of what can be done.
