The Committee's Environmental Issues Forums are held on legislative session days in the Capitol and are normally conducted once a month in those months in which the General Assembly is in session. These forums highlight environmental programs and challenges, and allow stakeholders to present directly to legislators.

The public is always welcome to attend the forums. Please watch this site for upcoming forums or contact the committee office at (717) 787-7570.

Environmental Issues Forums

January 22, 2018 12:00 PM-1:00 PM
Capitol Complex, Harrisburg
Room 8E-A, Capitol East Wing
The first forum of 2018 will feature Adam Rousselle, president of Merchant Hydro Developers, to discuss the viability and potential benefits of pumped storage hydroelectricity. Pumped storage is often described as a giant liquid battery, pumping water between two reservoirs to generate and store electricity for use during peak demand. Mr. Rousselle will discuss his company's proposal to develop 20 pumped storage stations across Pennsylvania, many that repurpose abandoned mines.
