Making Athens cool
(2007-09-26)
(WOUB) - New, energy efficient light bulbs. Building renovations that include energy efficient designs and materials.

These are two steps that may be in Athens' future so the city can live up to its Cool Cities promise.

Having passed a Cool Cities resolution, Athens is committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions to below the levels of 1990, and to do it by the year 2017.

Athens Chamber of Commerce CEO Jennifer Simon says Cool Cities is a good business move. Simon says the program also brings positive publicity to the area.

The city is getting help from the Sierra Club, which will use computer software to guage the effectiveness of proposed actions.
