New Planet Philadelphia 4-5:00 PM today!



This is an exciting and transitional time in the future of PGW (Philadelphia Gas Works), Philadelphia’s gas utility company, and of the City. How can this transition happen and provide a sustainable business model for the utility, continued jobs for workers in the gas industry, and reasonable prices for the consumers of the gas company’s products while reducing or eliminating greenhouse gases? Find out ways in which the process of determining the future of city owned PGW can also be helpful to other cities across the nation that are trying to make similar climate friendly transitions.

Currently, Philadelphia is considering the use of microgrid geothermal technology as one of the paths forward for PGW.  Aubrey and Zeyneb already have presented to various groups, including the City’s Office of Sustainability, and they will be discussing additional aspects of this possible transition.
