16 KS Cities Competing to Save Energy

An energy efficiency contest has 16 Kansas cities competing to see who can save the most energy. The Take Charge Challenge is broken into 4 regions, with a total of 16 cities competing. Each community gets a 25 thousand dollar grant to start the program. The money is used to buy energy-saving light bulbs and get the word out about easy ways to increase energy efficiency. The Take Charge Challenge is in its second year. Dorothy Barnett is with the Climate and Energy Project. She says all the competing cities will likely show benefits from the contest.

In each region, the top city will receive a 100 thousand dollar grant for an energy efficiency project. There is more information at (take charge Kansas dot org).
