Description

Join us for the **kick-off** of a 100-mile walk throughout PECO's service area -- we are literally walking the walk for green jobs. We will begin our walk by grounding in our vision of thousands of local green jobs and new economic opportunities in local communities powered by the sun -- and then the rubber will hit the road and we'll start our walk.

Come to cheer us on for the first steps, or walk with us as we make our way to Darby!

It's helpful if you can RSVP here to let us know you're definitely coming:http://www.eqat.org/walk

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
