The West Vincent Clean Energy Transition Team (WVCETT) was formed (Resolution 12-2020) to create and enact a plan to evaluate current municipal and community energy use and create a roadmap (the Clean Energy Transition Plan) for the transition.  

The plan is evolving and continues to be revised based on advances in renewable energy technologies, progress, priorities, and regional changes.

 

The CETT collaborates with township residents, WV township staff and committees, and other municipal teams and organizations to encourage and assist with energy conservation and transition consistent with the Chester County’s Climate Action Plan and the Phoenixville Regional Planning Commission (PRPC) comprehensive plan.

 

The team maintains open communication with residents and local businesses, providing avenues for community involvement and informed decision-making.

"The PECO Home Energy Assessment representative walked through my entire home and gave me tips on how to weatherize properly. He identified windows that needed better sealing, some spaces in my attic that may cause drafts/loss of heat and energy and recommended some easy inexpensive fixes I could do myself..."

"...They replaced 35 expensive incandescent bulbs ($400) with more energy efficient LEDs for FREE! I received a comprehensive report and recommendations. It was easy to schedule and well worth the time spent with the friendly representative."

Steve Austin

" The inspection was very thorough. The inspector used an infrared tool to detect a seam of the top floor ceiling that was not insulated in the attic It was an easy fix. They also certified that our roof photovoltaic panels were in working order. I recommend the inspection to anyone serious about saving power and reducing their expensive heating and cooling costs."
