MORPC Seeking Public Comment on Franklin County Energy Study Draft Report through October 25

MORPC Seeking Public Comment on Franklin County Energy Study Draft Report through October 25

The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) is seeking public comment on the Franklin County Energy Study draft report through October 25, 2017 (comments due by 5:00pm).  Let us know your thoughts!  The draft report and more information about how to submit comments can be found at www.morpc.org/EnergyStudy.

The Franklin County Energy Study provides a data-driven assessment of energy use and production across key sectors of the economy.  The report identifies all major forms of energy produced and consumed in Franklin County. Knowing where we are now is necessary to get to where we are going. This study establishes the energy baseline and serves as the starting point from which success is measured. By understanding how energy flows from its source to where we live and work, how we use it, and what this process does to our environment, we can begin to develop ways to increase the beneficial effects it has on our economy and quality of life.

We would like to know what key findings are most interesting to you and how the study can be improved.  Feel free to follow up if you have questions and please share this with your networks.

Thanks,
Brandi
