Last month the West Chester Area Council of Governments launched its West Chester Area Clean Energy Future campaign. The campaign is made up of four community engagement modules designed to walk constituents through lessening, then greening their energy consumption. Think of this as the first step toward shrinking the town’s energy use – one resident at a time.
At the beginning of 2019, the West Chester Area Council of Governments came together to take a stand on climate change. They hired a consulting firm to study the area’s energy mix and make a recommendation on how to move the area toward renewable energy. We now have our first look at that report.
I know these temperature swings don’t necessarily mean we’re breaking the earth, but I can’t help but feel it can’t be good either. Deep breath. West Chester is working on a plan to make us all feel better.
