Report: Allegheny County got an ‘F’ for air quality
People of color were 3.6 times as likely as whites to be breathing the most polluted air. The American Lung Association’s 23rd annual State of the Air report card found that more than four in 10 Americans live with unhealthy levels of air pollution. The organization grades counties across each state for ozone and particle pollution using data from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The 2022 report contains data and analysis from 2018 to 2020.
Join the solar co-op and get solar panels for cheap or even free
Hazelwood Initiative has partnered with Solar United Neighbors to help residents get cheap or free solar panels and EV charging stations. Homeowners who want to lower their electric bills, help the environment and keep the lights on during outages can join the co-op to buy solar panels. Bulk buying, as in a co-op, is by far the least expensive way to get solar panels. Participants receive lots of guidance from the nonprofit solar experts at SUN to help them make an informed decision about going solar.
