WEST LIBERTY, Ky.
An initiative started by former President Bill Clinton could support efforts to build energy-efficient housing in an eastern Kentucky town hit by a tornado.
Clark is with Midwest Clean Energy Enterprise of Lexington. He says the goal is to raise $500,000 to build four energy-efficient, single-family homes in West Liberty for low-income residents displaced by the tornado. The houses will include solar and geothermal systems.
A kickoff fundraiser for the project was held last week in Louisville.
