Energy Audit of Municipal Buildings

All of our municipalities have completed or have plans for a profession energy audit of municipal operations. Something should be done periodically because best practices are always being updated.


On-Site Solar

The Chestnut St Garage in West Chester Borough has a solar canopy on the roof which has been supplying carbon-free electricity to the garage since 2012. See Solar Dashboard

LED Lighting and Sensors

All of our municipal buildings have converted to LED lighting and many have installed occupancy sensors for meeting and other rooms.

WCB has a non-binding checklist/survey for new building projects in the Borough. East Goshen uses a PA checklist. Others are considering.

Building Electrification Plan

Some municipalities are considering developing or commissioning a Building Elelctrifiation Plan for municipal operations. Such a plan would set an example for residents and businesses on our area for methods of moving away from fossil fuel based heating.


LED Street & Traffic Lights

All of our municipalities have taken advantage of the DVRPC-led program to install LED lights into street and traffic lighting fixtures - where appropriate.


EV Ready Ordinance

WCB and W Goshen have passed EV Ready Ordinances that require new construction projects to include accommodations for EV Chargers that will save on installation costs for future owners or occupants.
