The Potential For Clean Energy in Kentucky

by Nancy Reinhart — last modified Jan 07, 2011 08:55 AM

Posted by Cumberland Chapter Sierra Club

Join us for a presentation about the potential for clean energy in Kentucky!

Tuesday January, 18, 7:00pm at the Clifton Center in Louisville

Please join us for our inaugural meeting of 2011 as we hear about the Kentucky Sustainable Energy Alliance, KySEA (www.kysea.org).  The Sierra Club is a founding member of this Alliance, which has become a broad coalition of organizations and businesses working to advance sustainable energy policies and practices in our state.  Besides the Sierra Club, the coalition includes groups such as Community Farm Alliance, Kentuckians for the Commonwealth, the Metropolitan Housing Coalition, Mountain Area Community Economic Development, and Kentucky Interfaith Power and Light.

Wallace McMullen, Greater Louisville Sierra Club's Conservation Chair, will fill us in on KSEA and how the ideas and initiatives are developing to take concerted action together for a more prosperous and environmental Kentucky.

The Ky Sustainable Energy Alliance mission is drawn from these questions:  What are the best energy policies for Kentucky?  How can they be implemented?  What will get our elected State officials to listen?

Wallace will provide the most up-to-date answers, tell us what the current state of play is with the KySEA initiatives, and suggest what we can all do.

Our meeting is at 7:00 p.m., Tuesday, January 18th, at the Clifton Center (www.cliftoncenter.org).  It is free and open to the public. Start the year off with an informative program on how we can work together to create a healthier, sustainable energy future for Kentucky.

Energy Efficient Affordable Housing Helps Families Thrive Energy Efficient Affordable Housing Helps Families Thrive

People's Self Help Housing has been providing affordable housing opportunities to families in Lewis County since 1982. PSHH knows that "affordability" is defined by more than just the mortgage. If a home is energy inefficient, the utility bills become too high for a low-income family to afford. As a result, PSHH has long-built highly energy efficient homes, helping the families they serve to thrive. PSHH has also recently built some of the first affordable homes in the region with renewable energy systems. Given that so many low-income KY families live in energy inefficient homes, combining affordability, efficiency and renewable energy is a recipe for success that benefits everyone.
