SHAUN WALSH, WEST GOSHEN TOWNSHIP SUPERVISOR
"The WCA Clean Energy Future initiative is an excellent example of local government and community collaboration to help us transition to a renewable energy future. One key step is the evaluation of a collective local government approach to purchase renewable electricity for municipal operations. With the cost of solar farms plummeting by 90% since 2009, there is the exciting possibility to both lower electricity costs for local government and reduce air pollution through a clean energy purchase power agreement."
“Our community is serious about curbing the serious health risks of carbon pollution. Renewable energy is now very much within reach, and buying clean energy for our electricity supply is an essential first step we can take. Taxpayers want to see their money go toward a stronger local economy with good jobs and community well-being, not pollution.”
