“But where is all of this energy coming from?” one audience member joked as a projector and lights were put on in preparation for the oncoming presentation.
“All solar,” Cory Miller responded. “All of it’s coming from our solar grid.”
The State College chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) sponsored a tour and presentation of the University Area Joint Authority solar array on Sept. 22 at UAJA’s Spring Control Facility.
State College’s CCL chapter is one of 550 chapters worldwide and 400 nationally.
Sylvia Neely, group leader of the State College chapter, kicked off the event by introducing the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend, a proposed bill with the purpose of driving down American carbon pollution by implementing a gradually rising carbon fee. The bill also seeks to set a carbon dividend with 100 percent of net revenues going toward the American people.
