Billings Goes Green

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

The City of Billings is one group that collaborated with the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance and Northwestern Energy to participate in a program to guide them to launch energy saving programs.

Some ways the City of Billings became more energy efficient include changing the lighting at the airport, city buildings, and street lights. And the city going green means tax payers save on some green.

"Until now, they hadn't really looked at it city wide, what are they trying to accomplish. And now with Billings being an Energy Star city, it gives them a platform to think about how to improve the whole energy consumption of the city across all of the different departments," said Jeff Harris, of NEEA.
