M&SCA of Eastern PA has become part of a coalition of supporters for the PA PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) bill (SB 234). PACE is a financing mechanism that enables low-cost, long-term funding for energy efficiency, renewable energy, and water conservation upgrades to commercial or industrial properties. The proposal is similar to legislation that has already been established in 33 other states.
The Times-Tribune published an article detailing the bipartisan support for this legislation and the significant economic benefits it could provide once passed.
On Tuesday, January 31, M&SCA joined several other labor management, energy, and environmental supporters of this bill for a press conference with Senators Blake & Reschenthaler, the co-sponsors of the bill in the Pennsylvania Senate.
