Greensburg, KS – A town that was devastated by a tornado in 2007, yet came back to be one of the Nation’s most energy-efficient, sustainable communities. Civic leaders and entrepreneurs helped rally residents behind the idea of “greening” Greensburg, inspiring the construction of numerous energy-efficient buildings, some of which generate their own renewable power with solar panels and wind turbines. Many of the town’s government buildings use cutting edge energy-saving technologies, saving the local taxpayers’ money. Greensburg has demonstrated to the world that any city can reach its energy efficiency and renewable energy goals today using widely available technologies.
