PA Conservative Energy Forum Hosts Town Hall Meetings Sept. 24 & 29 On Renewable Energy Support In PA And How Renewable Energy Is Essential To National Security

The PA Conservative Energy Forum will host hall meetings September 24 and 29 featuring former Secretary of the Navy Dr. John Lehman and pollster Glen Bolger from Public Opinion Strategies on the importance of clean and renewable energy in Pennsylvania.
Sept. 24
On September 24 starting at 3:00 p.m., pollster Glen Bolger of Public Opinion Strategies will give a presentation on Do Pennsylvanians Support Clean and Renewable Energy?
PennCEF commissioned Bolger earlier this year to conduct polling in the Commonwealth to determine support for Community Solar legislation in Pennsylvania. 
The results were surprising and affirmed Pennsylvania citizens want red tape out of the way which prohibits farms, businesses and landowners from sharing a solar installation with one another.
In addition, Glen will share his latest data on the support for renewable energy nationally. 
This is critical data for legislators, proponents of clean and renewable energy and those in this industry to understand the broad support there is among widely varying demographics in Pennsylvania and our country as a whole.
Sept. 29
On September 29 starting at 11:00 a.m., Dr. John Lehman, former Secretary of the Navy will give a presentation on Clean and Renewable Energy is Essential to National Security!
Dr. John Lehman came to know that renewable energy sources were essential to the security of the United States as a result of the findings of the 9/11 Commission on which he served. 
The findings indicated that our energy grid is open to enemy attack, both physical and cyber. As we have gained energy independence, our grid is more secure, but still susceptible to attack. 
Our military bases and forces having the capability to provide energy independent of the grid will make them safer and have the ability to continue operations should the grid go down.
Dr. Lehman has not only talked the talked, but walked the walk by installing a solar field on his property in eastern Pennsylvania. It has been an expensive and long process due to complaints from neighbors, but he has prevailed and is looking to add additional solar in the future.
During this Town Hall you will hear from the man Ronald Reagan trusted to build the U.S. Navy into a modern force which stood against our enemies during the Cold War and prevailed. 
There will be time for questions and answers as time permits.
