Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland is going green.

The hospital shocased their new wind turbines and solar panels Tuesday. It's part of an energy efficiency project with the apollo solutions group, and was awarded the 2011 "Greenie" award by the City of Richland.

The project is expected to save Kadlec 30 percent in energy costs or about $250,000 a year.

Leaders at Kadlec say the project was made possible in part by the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act.
