Post-tornado Greensburg, Kan., leads world in LEED-certified buildings per capita

May 09, 2013 |

Six years after a tornado virtually wiped out the town, Greensburg, Kan., is the world's leading community in LEED-certified buildings per capita. The town is home to a half-dozen LEED-platinum certified buildings, including the new city hall and the new 48,500 sf Kiowa County Memorial Hospital. Renewable energy powers the entire community, and the streetlights are all LED.
