Governor Ed Rendell to speak about new Energy Strategy at Pittsburgh luncheon

Governor Rendell to speak at a Pittsburgh Technology Council luncheon on Friday March 2nd to outline his recently introduced Energy Independence Strategy. This sounds like good news for both green entrepreneurs and Pennsylvania homeowners like myself who are hoping for more competitive green energy incentives.

Here are the details:

This $850 million initiative aims to cut consumer energy costs; reduce Pennsylvania's dependence on foreign fuels; and expand the commonwealth's alternative fuel, clean energy and conservation sectors. The governor's proposal would provide $500 million for clean energy economic development projects, $106 million for venture capital investments and the creation of a clean energy greenhouse, and $244 million for tax credits and rebates on energy-saving household appliances and technologies. Sponsored by Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC.

Date: Friday, March 2
Time: 12 - 12:30 p.m. registration, 12:30 - 1:30 p.m. program
