[52 Pa.B. 6197]
[Saturday, October 1, 2022]
The Department of Community and Economic Development (Department) publishes notice of a public hearing to be held electronically, by means of web/conference call on Tuesday, October 11, 2022. This public hearing will only be held virtually by the method listed. There will be no in-person opportunity to attend the hearing.
The public hearing by means of the web/conference call will be held at 11 a.m. and will last as long as there are comments to be received. This more widely available computer access/conference call will replace the onsite public hearing. The format will be more accessible than an in-person meeting because those who wish to make comment may participate directly from their electronic device, telephone or computer. Access information can be found at the end of this notice.
The purpose of this hearing is to receive comments on the Pennsylvania Sustainable Energy Resources for Consumers project appropriated by the United States Department of Energy Weatherization Assistance Program Plan (Plan).
The Plan is demonstrating that additional energy savings can be achieved in weatherized homes through expanding energy saving materials and technologies, specifically hybrid water heaters. The project will install 96 hybrid hot water heaters within the targeted five census tracts that are opportunity zones and underserved rural communities (United States Department of Agriculture-designated towns) in Luzerne County.
Copies of the proposed Plan may be obtained beginning September 30, 2022, by contacting the Department's Center for Community Services at (717) 425-7597 or it can be downloaded from the Department's web site at www.dced.pa.gov. Written comments may be submitted electronically to email@example.com until 5 p.m. on October 11, 2022.
