Lawrence city leaders are teaming with Westar Energy and others to cut the amount of power being used downtown.

Westar, the largest electric utility in Kansas, will be helping government and business leaders develop a pilot program that will attempt to make downtown properties more energy efficient.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the goal is to get about a dozen businesses to participate in the Green Business Leaders Program.

Westar will provide free energy audits to the businesses to see where money can be saved by making improvements to heating, cooling, lighting and other practices. Businesses will be expected to take one action identified by the audit.

Businesses will also receive a window decal identifying them as a Green Business Leader.
