Anderson County implements energy-saving upgrades

Bob Fowler reports in Sunday's News Sentinel that seven Anderson County government buildings are being upgraded in various ways to save energy and become more environmentally sustainable.

While it's costing the county $2.3 million, the improvements will more than pay for themselves, guarantees a spokesman for the company doing the work.

Some measures being implemented:
Rainwater is being captured to wash county vehicles; Hundreds of brighter lights that use less power, and toilets and faucets that use less water are being installed; Cracks are being caulked, heating units upgraded, and solar panels are being hooked up.
