Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Green companies at Falls, Pennsylvania's Keystone Industrial Port Complex
Consider the alternative

Bucks County Courier Times (PA)
December 5, 2008

Even though the election is over and gas prices have tumbled to their lowest levels since 2005, now is not the time to stop thinking about alternative energy.

Bucks County Commissioner James Cawley emphasized that point Thursday while sitting on a panel discussing ongoing efforts to bring new, green businesses to the former U.S. Steel facility in Falls.

"If you think we've averted the crisis - wrong," Cawley told Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce members gathered at Bensalem's Pen Ryn Mansion. "It's going to come back. We need to be diligent and make sure that when it comes back, we're ready to meet the challenges with wind, solar [and other forms of energy]."

With county and state help, Falls' Keystone Industrial Port Complex has lured green energy companies to the sprawling, 2,400-acre complex that once housed U.S. Steel's Fairless Works plant.
