Panelists from MU, the Missouri Department of Agriculture and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources presented ways to conserve energy.

Then attendees got a chance to ask their questions. Those questions included how to get wind power to Columbia to one about plugs that can cut down on wasted energy.

They also offered their opinions. One resident said some of the ideas might lead to more environmental problems.

The event's main sponsor Conoco Phillips said the event's purpose is to open up a dialogue and get people thinking about solutions to energy problems.

"We'd really like to come out and start that kind of dialogue. It's kind of it's in the midwest sector, so many of the communities we are visiting are states that we market in - kind of the big 12 territory," explainded E.L. Batchelder from Conoco Phillips.

Columbia is one of 35 stops on the "conservation on energy" tour.
