DEP Submits Energy Plan to Governor

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has submitted its Climate Change Action Plan Update to Governor Corbett and the state legislature highlighting efforts to reduce greenhouse gases and outlining possible strategies for continued lowering of emissions.
“As this plan shows, Pennsylvanians can be proud of the progress we are all making toward improving air quality and addressing climate change,” said DEP Secretary Chris Abruzzo, in a statement. “Much of this success can be attributed to expanding the use and availability of renewable and alternative energy sources, higher standards for mobile and stationary sources of emissions and DEP’s continued commitment to effective programs.”
The Pennsylvania Climate Change Act of 2008 requires the DEP to submit an updated climate change plan to the governor every three years. Click here to read a draft of the updated Climate Change Action Plan.
