The EAC consists of a minimum of five members who are appointed to a three-year terms. Members must be residents of the Township. The EAC is an advisory group and coordinates its activities with the Board of Supervisors, Planning Commission, and other advisory boards and committees. The EAC advises the Board of Supervisors regarding the identification of environmental problems and conditions and makes recommendations on plans and programs to promote the conservation of the natural resources for the protection and improvement of the quality of the environment within East Bradford Township.
The EAC meets on the 4th Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. This meeting date/time occasionally is rescheduled for holidays and other conflicts, so please check the calendar for any changes.
East Bradford has partnered with five other West Chester Area municipalities in a commitment to 100% renewable electricity by the year 2035 and 100% total renewable energy by the year 2050. We need your help to make this happen. Clean Energy Future is focused on three important steps to reach our goal: REDUCE the amount of energy you use; ELECTRIFY the sources of energy you use, and; TRANSITION to 100% renewable energy. For more information visit https://www.wcacleanenergy.org/.
This initiative is consistent with other energy related objectives. The Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution that supports a vision of a 100% renewable energy future. This objective is consistent with the 2016 Comprehensive Plan, which includes a chapter on energy. It is also consistent with work that is being done at the regional level.
