Moshannon Valley Economic Development Partnership joins Pennsylvania Energy Infrastructure Alliance

PHILIPSBURG, PA — The Moshannon Valley Economic Development Partnership (MVEDP), a state-certified economic and community development organization serving the greater Philipsburg/ Moshannon Valley region, has joined the Pennsylvania Energy Infrastructure Alliance (PEIA), a broad-based coalition of labor, agriculture, manufacturing and other business interests that support private investment in pipeline and other energy infrastructure developments.

The Partnership will work with PEIA members to educate lawmakers, members of their respective organizations and the public about the benefits of investing today to modernize and create new energy infrastructure to secure Pennsylvania’s economic future.

“Because of the abundant natural resources available in Pennsylvania, our commonwealth has a unique opportunity to become a global energy leader,” said MVEDP Executive Director Stan LaFuria. “In addition to providing an economic boost to residents, future generations will benefit from careers that will continue to offer competitive, family-supporting salaries.”

“However, in order to maximize the benefit to local economies, it is essential that we upgrade and build the reliable channels to transport our resources in a safe and efficient manner,” LaFuria added. “For that reason, we recently became members of the Pennsylvania Energy Infrastructure Alliance, a group that supports the development of energy infrastructure in our communities.”
