KySEA at the Governor's Energy Conference

by Nancy Reinhart — last modified Oct 27, 2010 08:43 AM

The Kentucky Sustainable Energy Alliance (KySEA) tabled at the Governor's Energy Conference on October 20th and 21st in Louisville. We had many good conversations with Kentuckians from across the state who are interested in what they can do to move Kentucky towards a clean energy future.

KySEA Tabling

Several school teachers stopped by the table, interested in how they could move their schools towards clean energy. People interested in installing solar panels on their homes were curious who they should contact to make that happen. Business owners and other individuals asked us how they could contribute towards KySEA's efforts to pass clean, affordable and sustainable state energy policy.

Our presence was particularly important given that the conference seemed to have a theme of "transition." Presentations throughout the two days focused on how Kentucky's and the nation's energy landscape are shifting and that an increase in renewable energy sources and a decline in the use of coal-burning power are inevitable. Kentucky Energy Secretary Len Peters stated that through the conference "we are exploring ideas for how we make this transition, this transformation go most smoothly for everyone."

KySEA is an alliance of individuals, businesses and organizations working together to promote clean, sustainable and affordable energy solutions for Kentucky. It was formed in 2009 and its presence couldn't be more timely. Given the changing energy landscape and the needs of so many families facing skyrocketing energy prices, KySEA is poised to do exciting work over the next few years.

With the 2011 legislative session coming up, our efforts to promote a package of sustainable, healthy and affordable energy options for the state are heating up. KySEA meetings are advertised on this website and open to the public - join us!
