An introduction to the purpose of the KySEA blog.

Welcome to the first blog post of the brand new Kentucky Sustainable Energy Alliance! We hope this space serves as a valuable resource to individuals, organizations, businesses, congregations and others who want to help move Kentucky towards a clean energy future.

Here’s a little preview of what you can expect to find on this blog in the future:
 

  • Profiles of people, organizations, businesses and local governments who are putting clean energy solutions to work in Kentucky.
  • Updates about sustainable energy policies being considered in the Kentucky General Assembly, including opportunities to take action!
  • Discussion of new studies and information about sustainable energy policies, programs, and practices that are relevant to our challenges and opportunities in Kentucky.
  • Discussion of federal energy policies and their potential impact on Kentucky’s economic, environmental and energy future.


We encourage your comments and submissions. Anyone with a tip or idea for a blog entry is welcome to email martin@kftc.org.
