Chandler Going Green

Long time readers of my newsletter know that I'm a big proponent of blending the needs of our lifestyle with the needs of the environment - of finding a more eco-friendly way to accomplish the same task. Whether it's via solar or wind-powered energy, bio-diesel fuel, straw bale housing, or even a more fuel efficient car, I appreciate those advocating renewable energy. I also try to give credit where credit is due.

Kudos to Chandler for constucting a municiple building (on the corner of Frye & Elliot) that's totally "green", complete with LEED certification. The building will generate more than enough power to meet its own needs, and will be able to sell the surplus to SRP (imagine that!)
