A free informational session is scheduled for those looking for guidance and information on “going green.”
Community Advocates for Clean Energy in the Greater Philadelphia Region, the Sierra Club and the Climate Reality Project are sponsoring an event for homeowners, renters and community institutions who are looking for guidance and information on “going green.”
The free informational session on Dec. 9, from 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m., will highlight federal and state programs that provide tax credits, rebates, grants, and financing for those making their homes and local schools more energy efficient. It will focus on strategies for obtaining government support for such individual initiatives as installing heat pumps and air/water quality monitors, purchasing electric vehicles or starting multi-family electrification projects, and much more. We will provide resources for homeowners, renters, and communities.
The event, hosted by a coalition of local volunteers from three groups in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware – Community Advocates for Clean Energy in the Greater Philadelphia Region, the Climate Reality Project, and the Sierra Club - is designed to help state governments, cities, towns, communities and individuals take advantage of available funds from two new historic government bills from the Biden administration designed to advance climate action, environmental justice, and clean energy in homes, schools, businesses, and non-profit organizations.
It will provide opportunities for individuals to hear from and work with volunteer program experts to translate these new grant opportunities into reality by helping homeowners learn how they can apply for rebates to help them make their homes more energy efficient.
Now is an exciting time to join us as a volunteer! If you enjoy public speaking, facilitating a workshop, designing materials, researching new programs, and especially if you are a grant writer with experience in grant research writing we would welcome the opportunity to talk with you.
The in-person meeting will be held at the Upper Merion Township municipal building in King of Prussia. Interested individuals can register for the event at email@example.com.
