Support Clean Air and Make Local Solar Happen for Earth Day at No Additional Cost to You
The Clean Air Council has worked closely with local energy supplier, Community Energy, for years and has teamed up with them again to offer FREE registration for the 5K Run! Community Energy’s efforts to develop and supply clean, fuel-free, renewable energy generated right here in Pennsylvania have been vital to building a clean energy future for our local communities. You can now switch to Community Energy’s electricity supply, called Solar Builder, and make local solar happen at no additional cost to you.  Switching takes 3 minutes, and is the easiest thing you can do to lower your carbon footprint on Earth Day.
