The Wisconsin Conservative Energy Forum points to the actions taken by a La Crosse hospital as a prime example of energy efficiency and its benefits. 

Gundersen Health System launched the use of a biomass boiler five years ago, using wood chips from local mills for fuel.  System leaders expect to make more changes in the next five years.  Gundersen became the first health system in the country to reach energy independence four years ago.  As of October 2014, it was producing more energy than it was consuming.
