Local geologist Roger Kuhns believes Door County has the potential to be one of the leaders in sustainable energy in Wisconsin. Roger is currently working on a project to help Sturgeon Bay become more sustainable. Kuhns says that by embracing wind power, combined with the number of visitors and residents puts Door County in a unique position to become self-sufficient.
Kuhns adds that a key component in his project is growing food locally instead of having it shipped in. By his calculations, Kuhns predicts that the area farms could produce enough food for the entire city of Sturgeon Bay.
