Solar-powered Mayor!

Don't forget our rivers on June 20th, or our trees ever:

Hey, Cronies! Turn down your hot water heaters, why don't you:

I caught up with Mayor Ravenstahl and city Sustainability Coordinator Lindsay Baxtor for a moment prior to the program to talk about the 'greening up' of the City-County Building.

Ravenstahl's administration says it has not yet solicited bids from private firms to perform an "energy audit" which will be necessary to guide the complex improvements. Baxtor indicates that the city is waiting for the general federal stimulus picture as it relates to Pittsburgh to clear up. I tried to pin them down on a "summer or fall" release of an RFP, but that aspect seems to be in a holding pattern until further notice.
