Sustainability & the Environment

A commitment to our environment and sustainability is a community responsibility. Senator Haywood supports efforts to increase utilization of renewable energy, and has co-sponsored legislation to: provide tax credits for green construction and manufacturing of energy start rated products; require all new state buildings to meet Department of Environmental Protection regulations on green buildings; remove solar energy systems from sales and use taxation; add LEED consideration into reimbursement for school construction under the school code; and amend the commonwealth’s Alternative Energy Portfolio Standards to increase electricity sold in the commonwealth from renewable resources. The senator encourages neighbors to participate in community clean-ups and recycling efforts to respect our environment and the future generations that depend on it.
