If you ever needed more evidence that going green is normal, look no further than this story.

The headline of this latest story reads, “Town of Normal works to improve local environmental standards.” Normal, Illinois made the news recently by taking steps to green their town - and bragged about it.

Planning for the new green team began back in November 2006 when Normal adopted an environmental stewardship policy intended to address issues of sustainable sites in the area.

The HVAC trade will get a lot of scrutiny as “common heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning systems being evaluated for efficiency by the town include furnaces” according to the Vidette story.

In the same story, Rand Veerman, electrical inspector for the town of Normal and a member of the Green Team, said, “As the older equipment breaks … it becomes cost efficient to replace it so that it favors the green effect. We’d rather spend money … lowering the carbon footprint.”

So there you have it, soon it will be Normal to see green teams pop up everywhere.
