$225 Million in Energy Investments in Pennsylvania Proposed

read | Share:

Yesterday, as part of his first budget address, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf proposed $225 million in energy investments. The investments will be disseminated mostly via competitive bids and/or through direct grants to residential and business customers, to 1) promote the Commonwealth as a national leader in solar and wind clean energy production, 2) promote a comprehensive energy portfolio that supports gas, coal, oil, and renewables, and 3) encourage conservation and clean technology alternatives. Major investments that are part of the $225 million proposal include the near-term promotion of combined heat and power, wind power, green agriculture, solar investment, energy efficiency, compressed natural gas, and more.

The Governor’s proposal must be passed as part of budget deliberations with the House and Senate, likely to conclude by summer 2015.
