West Chester Area Clean Energy Future
The Townships of East Bradford, East Goshen, West Goshen, Westtown, West Whiteland, and the West Chester Borough, in conjunction with the West Chester Area Council of Governments (WCACOG), collectively hired the Cadmus Group to complete a study on the feasibility, costs, and opportunities of transitioning to 100% renewable energy, and to create a long-term, actionable roadmap for realizing the community’s goals. On August, 3, 2020, Westtown Township adopted Resolution 2020- 09 formally accepting the WCACOG Clean Energy Study, authorizing the Township’s involvement in a project to implement strategies set forth in the study, and authorizing the Township’s involvement in the issuance of a Request for Proposal (RFP) for a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA).
