While daylight savings is starting early this year so we can all conserve energy, a local airport will be opening the very first green airport hangar right here in the Badger State tomorrow.

The Stevens Point Airport has been working on building since last August, which is equipped with solar panels and transpired walls to generate heat inside the hangar.

The hangar will house some corporate jets as well as a maintenance room.

"Really is from the stand point technologically, it's probably the best hanger in the Midwest, maybe in the country," said Architect Bill Yudchitz.

The total cost of the project was about $800,000. About $24,000 came from a city educational grant, so workers will be able to teach visitors throughout the state about green energy.
