(Mar 08, 2023)

HARRISBURG, March 8 – State Rep. Elizabeth Fiedler, D-Phila., today hosted a news conference where she introduced legislation that would create a grant program to expand the use of solar energy at school facilities across Pennsylvania. The grant program, “Solar for Schools,” would issue grants to schools for solar energy projects, including costs related to equipment, installation and maintenance of solar energy systems. “This 21st-century landmark program can save local taxpayers and school districts hundreds of thousands of dollars a year,” Fiedler said. “With the savings, local governments can reduce taxes and schools can invest in more teachers. In addition to all those benefits, solar schools projects have immense local benefits such as reducing carbon emissions and creating family sustaining jobs.” At the legislation roll-out, Fiedler was joined today by labor, educational and environmental leaders. The list of labor unions and organizations supporting the legislative effort includes: the PA and Philadelphia Building Trades, AFT PA, PA and Philadelphia AFL-CIO, LIUNA and IBEW. Rob Bair, president of the Pennsylvania State Building and Construction Trades, said the grant program would create great opportunities for Pennsylvania. “As the sun rises on a new administration, labor and the state legislature can capture that sunlight and turn it into family sustaining jobs, lower energy costs for consumers, and Read more
