By John Durkee
Tulsa, OK – Today, we continue our special series dealing with alternative energy. Yesterday, we heard how AT&T would be using Oklahoma tax incentives to convert 30-of its vans to Compressed Natural Gas.
Today, we learn about Tulsa County's plans to save energy and become a little greener. Tulsa County's Director of Development and Governmental Affairs is Terry Simmonson. We recently visited with him about the county's plans. He says the goal is to lead by example.
He says the county will use federal stimulus energy dollars to make Tulsa County more energy efficient. He says the counties plan will have four components all with the same goal saving energy.
