State Rep. Bryan R. Lentz, D-Delaware, is hosting a panel discussion with regional and national experts to learn about new developments in renewable and alternative energy sources, as well as how moving toward home-grown energy sources can create new jobs in Pennsylvania.
Lentz's "Clean Energy Summit" is open to the public and will be held from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 22 at the Delaware County Community College, located at 901 South Media Line Road in Media.
"This will undoubtedly be a fascinating look at what we are doing at the state and federal level to free ourselves from the entanglements of foreign oil producers, and how developing energy domestically can benefit the environment and the economy, and create jobs," Lentz said. "Almost everyone has been impacted by rising oil prices in the past decade, so I hope residents will attend and share their thoughts on the matter."
Panelists will include the Truman National Security Project, Delaware Valley Industrial Resource Center, PennEnvironment and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.
Registration is requested, but not required and can be done by contacting Lentz's constituent service office
