On Thursday, July 11, at 6pm at the West Whiteland Township Building, the West Chester Area Council of Governments—representing West Chester Borough, East Bradford Township, East Goshen Township, West Goshen Township, Westtown Township, and West Whiteland Township—will host a public workshop on regional energy planning in the Greater West Chester Area.
The Council of Government has set an ambitious goal for the West Chester area to get to 100% renewable electricity by 2035 and 100% renewable energy for heat and transportation by 2050. In order to achieve this goal, we need substantial public input and buy-in. This meeting is likely to be the first of many over the next several decades as our region embarks on this important work. Meeting attendees will therefore play a critical role in guiding this process from the beginning.
The meeting will be conducted by Cadmus, a consulting firm specializing in regional energy planning.
