PA State Representative Chris Rabb recently introduced legislation that would commit Pennsylvania to 100% renewable energy by 2050 . This bill would establish commissions for developing plans to transition Pennsylvania’s workforce using short-term benchmarks. Such a change would potentially lead to an uptick in clean energy jobs, while increasing the quality of the air that we breathe. But this is not the first step forward for renewable energy in the state of Pennsylvania; over the past couple decades, numerous bills have been passed to help the transition towards clean energy.
