Clean energy

Clean, renewable energy is within our reach — all we have to do is seize the opportunities around us.

To live greener, healthier lives we need to be using less energy and getting more of our energy from renewable sources like the sun and the wind. The good news is that powering our lives with clean energy is getting easier every day, and the transition away from fossil fuels, toward an economy that runs on renewable energy, is picking up steam. Together we can accelerate the change.

New report spotlights Erie Bayfront Parkway expansion among national highway boondoggles

ERIE, Pa. -- On the heels of Labor Day weekend, one of the year’s busiest weekends on the roads, PennEnvironment Research & Policy Center, PennPIRG Education Fund and Frontier Group released a new report on Thursday that exposes highway boondoggles across the country that, if completed, would not only waste billions of dollars but also deepen our country’s harmful dependence on cars. The report includes the $100 million redesign of the already controversial Bayfront Parkway in Erie that would attract more speeding traffic to the city’s developing bayfront while failing to meet community demands for better pedestrian access from downtown and neighborhoods.

Biden promises action on climate change during event at former coal plant

President Joe Biden took his campaign to slow down climate change and speed up our transition to clean energy to the site of the former Brayton Point coal-fired power plant on Wednesday. Brayton Point is now becoming a hub for the development and production of offshore wind technology. During the visit, he announced a new program to develop offshore wind power in the Gulf of Mexico for the first time and indicated that his administration would propose additional executive actions to tackle climate change in the coming days.
