Save Energy, Create Jobs-Remodel

Remodel government building to take advantage of newer energy efficient ideas such as the use of Geothermal heating and cooling. We could also use construction techniques that could capture solar heat during the winter to offset heating cost associated to the winter. Wind-turbines, solar power, and the possible use of micro-hydro electric stations could help offset costs as well as offset the carbon footprint created by the US government, also any electricity created in excess could be sold back to the utility companies, further increasing the amount saved. Doing this type of remolding will not only save money, but create jobs for people as they modernize the government infrastructure.
