Moving Towards a Sustainable Energy Future

SEF’s primary goal is to move society towards a sustainable energy future. While this goal is an audacious promise beyond ableness, we have continued to work towards making this a reality by living our mission and holding true to our vision and our values.


Our Mission

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 in Pennsylvania.

We work to accomplish this mission through our programs. Financially, we aid entities such as small businesses, municipalities and nonprofits to reduce the consumption of energy from non-sustainable resources. Educationally, we create an understanding of and passion for sustainable energy in the leaders of today and tomorrow. In regulatory matters, we intervene in legal proceedings that impact energy conservation, energy efficiency and/or renewable energy policies and laws. We execute our mission in a vibrant, entrepreneurial manner with the aid program sponsors and industry partners.
