MILFORD, Pa. — A Land Use Decision-making webinar will be held Wednesday from noon to 1:15 p.m. The topic is Renewable Energy for Municipal Authorities.
This is the third in a series of five webinars for Summer/Fall 2017. These monthly Land Use Webinars will help land owners, farmers, elected and appointed officials, developers and community members who are involved in decision-making processes regarding using or preserving natural resources come together to make better land use decisions.
In total, it is estimated that 3 to 4 percent of the electricity consumed in the U.S. is used for treating and distributing water and wastewater. In southwestern Pennsylvania, there are roughly 100 water and waste water authorities that operate to provide safe, clean water or treatment and clean up before release back into the environment. This webinar will introduce the Renewable Energy for Municipal Authorities Project which will demonstrate solar capacity for local municipal authorities that use sustainably-produced electricity to offset purchases from the grid, the savings authorities can attain saving rate payers money and improving the authorities’ financial footing.
