Recently announced by State Sen. Jay Costa, D-Forest Hills, Rivers of Steel National Heritage Area will be receiving a grant from theDepartment of Conservation and Natural Resources for eco-friendly projects at some of their historic sites. In part, the projects will provide alternative energy and enable the organization to reduce their carbon footprint as well as become more sustainable.   

Continuing its initial foray into the off-grid field that began with the installation of solar panels at the Carrie Blast Furnace site in Rankin by locally-owned sustainable power generation businessZeroFossil Energy Outfittersout of Munhall this past summer, RSNHA has similar plans for its other heritage sites. Currently the Carrie Blast Furnace site, which produced iron for U.S. Steel's Homestead Works until the mid-80s, has a solar-powered energy source which is used for interpretive and guidance lighting among other things. 
  
The DCNR grant will help fund alternative energy capabilities at two of their other sites - the Historic Pump House & Water Tower, located in The Waterfront and The Bost Building, visitor center for RSNHA, in Homestead.
 
"This grant allows Rivers of Steel to take full advantage of emerging technologies in green energy, and by incorporating them into our facilities we will reduce our carbon footprint and at the same time reduce our operating costs for lighting these historic landmarks," said August R. Carlino, President & CEO of Rivers of Steel Heritage Corporation.  The three-year project is set to be initiated in the next few months.
