Announcing the 2013 Folk Festival: Powered by 100% Wind!
The Philadelphia Folk Song Society (PFS) and Community Energy are excited to announce that the 2013 Philadelphia Folk Festival will be 100% Wind Powered! Thanks to a unique partnership with local, renewable energy developers, Community Energy, this year’s event will step up its “green game” through a significant reduction in carbon emissions.
Historically, PFS has focused on sustainability and green initiatives at the Folk Fest, and this year they are taking that commitment to the next level with renewable energy. By partnering with Community Energy to offset electricity used at the 2013 Folk Fest with 100% Wind Power, they are encouraging festival attendees to follow suit and choose clean energy for their own homes, driving the demand for renewable energy and building new supply.
Use Your Electricity Bill to Unchange Climate Change!
Recent reports on climate change and high carbon emissions in Pennsylvania has driven PFS to think differently about their energy consumption at such a high-traffic event. On a rural farm near Schwenksville, PA, the month long build-up and breakdown before and after the event, including the four day festival itself, requires an enormous amount of electricity. Working with Community Energy, the only Pennsylvania supplier actively building new renewable energy projects in the Commonwealth, PFS is making a bold statement about climate change and their commitment to developing a clean energy future for Pennsylvania. And YOU CAN TOO!
