Energy conservation less expensive than green energy — Rodney Heller

I appreciate last Sunday’s editorial on clean energy, but your editorial board is thinking with its heart and not its head.

Instead of creating more energy, we should be focusing on using less.

I work with energy-efficient lighting, and for every dollar spent on saving a kilowatt, $10 would have to be spent on creating one with green energy.

The conservation of energy is already underway. It continues to evolve at a much lower cost than the creation of green energy.

Gov. Scott Walker is thinking with his head: Save the energy, it is more cost-effective. I know everybody wants green energy, but right now that is thinking with your heart.

Have patience, we will get there. In the meantime, buy an LED light bulb.
