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.

How we accomplish our mission

Sustainable Energy Fund (SEF) is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to breaking down financial, educational and regulatory barriers to a sustainable energy future. SEF operates as a financially independent nonprofit enterprise. 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 of volunteers, program sponsors and industry partners. 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.
