On average, Morris residents are using 8.5 percent less energy than comparable households in Minnesota or throughout the nation, according to Minnesota Green Corps member Ben Erickson, who is working with Morris through August and gathered data for a Baseline Energy Consumption presentation. But while Morris citizens are doing a good job, Erickson told listeners of KMRS Community Connection that we could be doing better.

Erickson, a University of Minnesota Morris graduate, said there are many things that can be done to save energy, if one chooses to look for them. Green Corps is a service program run through the AmeriCorps system and the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency.
