PennFuture Breakfast Meeting: January 14 in Allentown


Citizens for Pennsylvania’s Future (PennFuture) is holding a breakfast event on clean-energy policy in the Commonwealth, the morning of January 14, 2010. Here are the details:

PennFuture would like to invite you to a breakfast meeting at the Allentown Brew Works on January 14, 2010 from 8:00 – 10:00 a.m. to discuss proposed state legislation aimed at promoting economic growth in the clean energy sector.

Specifically, the meetings will provide an opportunity to learn more about legislation being considered in Harrisburg – House Bill 80 – which increases and lengthens the mandates for the purchase of renewable energy like wind and solar here in the Keystone State. This legislation, an expansion of our successful 2004 renewable energy standard, will help to significantly grow the clean energy sector, create green jobs and attract new investment into the region.

Speakers will explore the economic growth potential that policies such as the Alternative Energy Portfolio Standard of 2004 have already had, and what improvements to that law can have for both existing and emerging businesses.  Pennsylvania is among the nation’s leaders for green job creation, and passage of HB80 is likely to result in tremendous potential for local business growth, additional green job creation, and increased investment in the state.

Hear from:

  • Jan Jarrett- President & CEO, PennFuture
  • Joy Bergey- Federal Policy Manager, PennFuture
  • John Hanger- Secretary, PA Department of Environmental Protection (invited)
  • Governor Ed Rendell (invited)

Space is limited.

Register today to attend this breakfast and find out how you can take action to assist in the passage of this important piece of legislation.
