From a story reported by Sara Kronenberg on WKBT-TV:

It’s an ongoing search for new, green solutions that will not only save money, but also the the environment.

Community, county and school leaders met Tuesday at the La Crosse Center for “Our Energy Future,” a conference about new energy answers.

Wisconsin is on its way to developing more widespread green energy solutions that could save organizations money.

Organizers say making the transition from coal burning dependency might require people to scale back on their own energy needs.

“The answers are always local, always personal,” says Dave Dumke with the Wisconsin Counties Association. “They’re always in your own home, in your own business, and if you’re governing a school district. If we have massive change like that, we’ll solve the problem.”
