PA: Latest Energy Plan Focuses on Renewables

Posted December 9, 2015 at 6:09am

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that “Pennsylvania’s path to a lower carbon future will include a significant expansion of renewable energy; fewer methane leaks from natural gas pipelines and coal mines; more efficient use of energy to power homes and businesses; new forest preserves; and more waste made useful as energy.”  

“That vision, described in a new draft update to Pennsylvania’s climate change action plan, is a compilation of dozens of steps the Department of Environmental Protection says the state can take to help limit the damage caused by rising global temperatures, which the report calls ‘one of the most serious issues facing the world.’”
