The Pennsylvania Energy Infrastructure Alliance is excited to announce a new member, the Beaver County Chamber of Commerce. With this announcement, PEIA has 22 members and is strong and growing.
“Building a safe and reliable means of transportation for our natural resources is an essential component of the commonwealth’s economic revival, and for our own local revitalization efforts,” said Jack Manning, president and executive director of the Beaver County Chamber of Commerce. “The Marcellus shale is the second-largest shale play in the world, and that provides Pennsylvania with a unique opportunity to establish itself as a world energy leader.
“We need to work together to support pipelines and encourage economic development, so companies come here for the affordable energy we can offer,” Manning added. “We joined the Pennsylvania Energy Infrastructure Alliance because we support employment opportunities for Beaver County residents and want to protect the family-sustaining wages provided by pipeline- and energy-related jobs.”
The Beaver County Chamber of Commerce is comprised of 540 member companies and is focused on supporting the growth and improvement of local economies. The chamber works to strengthen businesses by preparing, developing and promoting the communities it serves for economic growth, and ensuring that Beaver County is viewed as the premiere place to live and work in the region.
