This second episode will focus on the third C, Conservation, as we talk about energy efficiency and conservation in our built environment — the homes we live in, the buildings where we work, the schools we attend, even our city and county facilities.
By making our built environment more energy efficient and conserving energy, we save money, protect natural resources and create more attractive and comfortable places to live, work, learn and recreate. This episode will take a look at work that’s leading the way toward a more sustainable energy future for our region. We’ll explore the benefits of LEED-certified building practices in the public and private sectors, community weatherization initiatives to help residents save energy and money, and we’ll learn about new and exciting energy technologies designed to improve our homes and public services.
This episode will look at the successes of the Johnson County Sunset Buildings in Olathe; Posty Cards Plant in KCMO; JE Dunn Headquarters in downtown KCMO; and Project Living Proof .
