“I am pleased to welcome the Philadelphia Energy Authority to City Council Chambers for a public hearing on how we can reduce the costs of operating our government through energy conservation and educate the public on energy conservation and energy options,” Council President Clarke said.


“The Philadelphia Energy Authority looks forward to hearing from Philadelphia businesses and residents about how the Authority can meet it PEA Chairman Lewis said.
