    In an effort to reduce its’ carbon footprint, Congress plans on closing the only coal-burning power plant in the District of Columbia, which supplies much of the energy used at the congressional buildings.

    Ft. Irwin, a U.S. Army based in San Bernadino, California is making big changes…Green changes. Solar panels and wind turbines power computers, newly installed insulation and solar-reflective coating on buildings drastically reduce energy consumption, and electric cars transport troops across the base.
