I really enjoyed reading this article from the AP. Why? The government has the same problems the entire US has. It is currently too expensive to “Go Green”. At least in the sense of continuing on with wasteful habits and just replace all of our current usage with “Green Power”.

In recent years, Congress has reduced its energy consumption. The steam and chilled-water power plant has become more efficient. It now burns more natural gas and only 35 percent coal, compared with 49 percent in 2007.

Okay, so the plant has not produced power since 1952. All they are doing is heating and cooling water. Why not do it with a huge Geothermal Heat pump?

Interesting, they are going to have a protest at the capital power plant.
