PEMA Headquarters in Harrisburg


Via a partnership with Green Business Certification Inc., PADEP is putting metrics to the concept of resiliency for the power sector.  PEER is the first rating system that measures & improves power system performance.  With funding from the US Department of Energy, 3-5 entities in PA will receive a free technical assessment of their power system and possible PEER certification.  Eligible entities include college campuses, water/wastewater treatment plants, microgrids, rural electric cooperatives, municipal utilities, hospitals, and transit systems.  Actually, the first & only entity in PA that has earned PEER certification thus far is a college campus…Bucknell University!  Join us for a free workshop on December 3rd in Harrisburg to learn about the partnership and how energy stakeholders in PA can use PEER to advance their grid modernization, resiliency and sustainability goals.  Register here, and please reach out to me with any questions.
