Chatfield College and Duke Energy to Present Energy Series
March 11th, 2013
Duke Energy and Chatfield College will present
a series on energy needs and efficiency in southwest Ohio. The four part
series is designed to examine the delicate balance among energy needs, respect
for the environment, community concern about jobs for its residents, and the
economic advantages in attracting corporate expansion to this area.
The series – entitled Chatfield Stem
Future of Energy – will consist of three site visits: a fossil fuel plant, the
Duke Energy Envision Center, and Potterhill Homes to experience an example of
energy efficient construction using geothermal systems. The final seminar
of the series will feature a forum which will be open to the public. A
panel, consisting of experts within the energy industry and program
participants, will discuss their findings and address questions from the
audience. The series is being offered to school administrators in Adams,
Brown, and Clermont counties.
“Chatfield College has agreed to host the
series because we believe that we are in a position to provide a nonpartisan
forum about the challenges in providing clean, affordable, renewable energy,”
said John P. Tafaro, President.“This
falls within Chatfield’s mission as a liberal arts college and within our
responsibilities as actively involved community members.”
