Home Sweet Green Innovators

I'm happy to report that Pittsburgh Green Innovators has officially found a home in the Hill District.

"The campus center for the Green Innovations Center will be located in the former Connelly Trade School, in the city's Hill District, where a sales agreement has been finalized. It will house educational programs, serve as a public meeting place and accommodate long- and short-term residential uses."
This exciting program received a $250,000 grant from the Pennsylvania Gaming Economic Development and Tourism Fund for design and construction of the center. They received an additional $100,000 for educational and operational services.

Other local green recipients of this fund?

"$210,000 to the Steel City Rowing Club in Verona to construct an energy-efficient boathouse at 100 Arch St., using geothermal heating and cooling, on-site stormwater management and retention ponds, and many other green building components."
