Think "high performance" and visions of muscle cars pop to mind, not municipal buildings.
According to a recent AP story , Massachusetts is hoping to change that image by encouraging the development of high-performance schools, hospitals, businesses, and homes. The state is offering $15 million in federal stimulus dollars for proposals for super-energy-efficient buildings.
The state says it wants projects that dramatically reduce energy consumption and substitute renewable energy sources for fossil fuels.
The state is also looking for breakthrough technologies that can be used in buildings throughout Massachusetts with its snowy winters and muggy summers and that go far beyond existing state and utility energy efficiency programs.
