Sustainable Energy Fund finances energy-related projects to established commercial, industrial, municipal, agricultural and nonprofit entities. Our geographic focus is in the state of Pennsylvania.
We provide financing for renewable energy projects (e.g. biomass, solar, wind, etc.), as well as energy efficiency projects (e.g. building envelope improvements, HVAC, lighting systems, etc.).
Sustainable Energy Fund’s educational programs seek to increase the knowledge of and passion for sustainable energy in the leaders of today and tomorrow. Literacy in both energy and sustainability is crucial to the understanding and application of knowledge in making sound sustainable energy related decisions. SEF funds a variety of educational initiatives that raise public awareness of sustainable energy as well as provide topic-specific training for energy users, educators and students.
SEF was founded in 1999 through a settlement approved by the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission during the state’s electric deregulation proceedings. Since then, SEF has been a leading financer of sustainable energy projects and has greatly expanded its services with the goal of seeking a sustainable energy future.
Our mission is to promote, research and invest in clean and renewable energy technologies, energy conservation, energy efficiency and sustainable energy enterprises that provide opportunities and benefits for PPL electric ratepayers.
