COATESVILLE—Coatesville was once a local industry leader, but the steel industry only employs a fraction of the employees that it once did. Communities like Coatesville are now turning to solar to grow economies.
There will be a Time to Invest in Local Solar Jobs! rally on Tuesday, July 16, at 3:30 p.m. at the Exelon Power Labs location at 157 North Caln Road, Coatesville.
The rally will spotlight what PECO, and its parent company Exelon, could accomplish if it invested some of the $1 million dollars a day in profit they gain from the region, in long-term green jobs programs. Featured speakers include state Rep. Dan Williams, Stephen Reynolds from Solar City and Alvin Herring from Family Service of Chester County.
