ABSTRACT
This article focuses on changes in the U.S. government's interest in alternative energy resources. Local governments have been taking a hard look at solar, wind, geothermal and hydroelectric technologies in an effort to reduce maintenance costs and keep public services running smoothly. In many places, the motivation for exploring alternative energy systems is economic because of which alternative energy competes well with traditional fossil fuel systems. Wisconsin state Senator Robert Cowles has introduced a number of bills to promote the alternative energy sources, especially in state-owned office buildings, educational and correctional institutions.
