Washington County Chamber of Commerce and Delaware County Chamber of Commerce have partnered as founding members of Pennsylvania Energy Infrastructure Alliance, a broad-based coalition of business, local labor organizations and individuals in support of timely approval for critical energy infrastructure in the commonwealth.
The coalition, announced in a news release, said it aims to raise the profile of how private investment in pipeline and other energy infrastructure can strengthen the state’s economy, create jobs and increase public safety when projects are properly designed, built and maintained.
Through media and grassroots education efforts, the coalition and its members plan to educate lawmakers, members of their organizations, and the public about the benefits of investing today to modernize and create new energy infrastructure to secure Pennsylvania’s future.
“The alliance supports investments to modernize energy infrastructure to ensure reliable access to low-cost energy to power the local economy and ensure the utmost safety and health of our communities,” the group said.
