Outagamie County, Wis., is set to open a new "net zero" general aviation terminal this fall. The building will be able to generate most of the energy it requires using geothermal heating and rooftop solar panels. County Executive Tom Nelson says that the project will make a positive impression on visitors to the area, as well as keep costs low. "It shows we're a cutting edge, progressive community," he says.
