Directors Support Clean Energy Planning Grant from Chester County Planning

The Board of Directors approved a letter of support for Board for East Pikeland, Schuylkill, and West Vincent Townships; and the advocates in the Phoenixville Clean Energy Transition Alliance (PACEA), in their application for a Clean Energy Transition Planning Study grant from the Chester County Planning Commissions Vision Partnership Planning grant program.

We support the development of a Clean Energy Transition Plan to facilitate conservation, energy efficiency and the transition to renewable energy in the Phoenixville area. We join in the goals of the study’s plan to educate and engage all the community’s stakeholders including the municipalities Ready for 100% Renewable Resolutions and the 2019 Phoenixville Regional Comprehensive Plan’s commitment to transition away from polluting fossil fuels to renewable energy. We welcome the study’s plan to educate and engage all the community’s stakeholders including the private and public schools, non-profits, businesses, institutions, property owners and residents.

We look forward to being part of this study’s effort to do our part in reducing the impacts of our energy choices on the climate.

Phoenixville Area Clean Energy Alliance (PACEA) is Born

On June 7th, 2020, representatives from the six Phoenixville Area Regional Planning Committee (PRPC) municipalities and the Phoenixville Green Team created an informal group titled the Phoenixville Area Clean Energy Alliance (PACEA).  The mission of this working group is to inform and advance the clean energy agenda of the townships, with the primary goal of implementing a Clean Energy Transition Plan (CETP) to reduce greenhouse gases. The plan we are seeking to adopt is based on the Sierra Club’s Energy Transition Plan template.  This template was developed by local Ready for 100% volunteers and energy professionals through an extensive research of adopted local and state plans.
