    President Obama to Hold Energy Town Hall in Philadelphia Area

     

    WASHINGTON – On Wednesday, April 6, President Obama will travel to the Philadelphia area to discuss his long-term plan to protect consumers against rising oil prices and decrease oil imports as well as key components of his broader energy plan to diversify all of our energy sources, ensuring a cleaner, safer, and more secure energy future.  The President will visit Gamesa Technology Corporation in Fairless Hills, where he will hold a town hall discussion with workers about building a 21st century clean energy economy to win the future. Gamesa’s Fairless Hills wind-energy turbine manufacturing facility employs approximately 300 workers and was built at a former U.S. Steel industrial site.

     

    This past Wednesday, President Obama outlined his plan for America’s energy security in a speech at Georgetown University.  Today, speaking at a UPS shipping facility in Landover, MD, he highlighted a National Clean Fleet Partnership to assist large companies in reducing diesel and gasoline use in their fleets by incorporating electric vehicles, alternative fuels, and fuel-saving measures into their daily operations.

    The President’s town hall discussion at Gamesa Technology Corporation will be open to pre-credentialed members of the media, as will the arrival and departure of Air Force One in Philadelphia.
