Meet The Small Town Destroyed By A Tornado And Rebuilt On Green Energy
Harnessing the wind through turbines, Greensburg, Kansas, now produces more energy than it consumes — and it's all clean.By Zach Toombs | October 17, 2016
After a tornado destroyed this small town, it rebuilt on a 100-percent clean energy plan.
"All of our pioneering ancestors were the original green people," Mayor Bob Dixson told us. "They drilled a water well when they settled here. They used the wind to pump the water out of the ground."
In 2007, Greensburg, Kansas, was forced to start again. And they started on a green energy grid. Today they produce more energy put onto that grid than they take off of it.
