Description

Join us for the final mile of a 100-mile walk throughout PECO's service area -- we are literally walking the walk for green jobs. With all those miles behind us, hundreds of Pennsylvanians, prominent clergy, and national leaders Bill McKibben and Bishop Dwayne Royster will demand that PECO take bold action to transform local energy and create good jobs by getting 20% local solar by 2025, built first in areas with high unemployment.

It's helpful if you can RSVP here to let us know you're definitely coming:http://www.eqat.org/walk. RSVP is not required.

Why a walk? 
Solar power brings local jobs and energy security, which is why we are embarking on an epic walk throughout PECO's service area to link together the opportunities for our local energy future. In each of five counties—Delaware, Chester, Montgomery, Bucks, and Philadelphia—walkers will move from the past to the future, from old energy sites to new, past crumbling infrastructure to green jobs training programs and installations. 

It's all part of EQAT and POWER's Power Local Green Jobs campaign, which you can read more about here: http://www.eqat.org/campaign
