ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The state of Georgia has been working to save energy. 

The annual Clean Energy Road Show visited the Albany Civic Center on Tuesday. 

The city already has some energy-saving policies in place.

The  utilities department is getting more of its electricity from solar power and new transit buses will run on compressed natural gas. 

"They can save money with a fuel bill or in a city with their buses," said Georgia Public Sw . So if you ride one of the transit busses you will notice that it's considerably quieter because those busses will ride on gas... a lot quieter than disel."

The Albany Transit Facility even showed off their new compressed natural gas fueling station at the event.

The road show will continue on to Americus on Wednesday and Savannah at the end of the week.
