Local Government Toolkit Available

As part of a US Department of Energy grant awarded to the North and South Carolina Energy Offices, in conjunction with Advanced Energy and the UNC Charlotte’s Energy Production and Infrastructure Center, an air quality toolkit was created to provide resources to local governments. The goal of this toolkit is to help local officials learn about energy-specific programs and practices that can be implemented in order to improve air quality. The specific topics covered in the toolbox include: background information on electricity generation, rate setting and air quality, transportation, internal operations, funding and financing, and community programs. The full toolkit is accessible on the website.
