Sustainable Energy Fund

Four funds were created as a result of the restructuring plans of five electric companies. The funds are designed to promote the development of sustainable and renewable energy programs and clean-air technologies on both a regional and statewide basis. The funds have provided more than $20 million in loans and $1.8 million in grants to over 100 projects. A Statewide Sustainable Energy Board was formed in 1999 to enhance communications among the four funds and state agencies. The board includes representatives from the Commission; the Department of Environmental Protection; the Department of Community and Economic Development; the Office of Consumer Advocate; the Pennsylvania Environmental Council; and each regional board.

The four renewable and sustainable energy funds include:

West Penn Power  (Docket No.: M-00031715F0005)

Metropolitan Edison (Met-Ed)  (Docket No. M-00031715F0004) and Pennsylvania Electric Company (Penelec) (Docket No. M-00031715F0004)

PPL Sustainable Energy Fund of Central/Eastern PA   (Docket No. M-00031715F0003)
