Note: The Sustainable Energy Fund is not soliciting grant applications at this time. Please see information about the SEF's loan program.

The Sustainable Energy Fund of Central Eastern Pennsylvania (SEF) disburses a limited number of grants and loans to organizations seeking funding for projects consistent with the Fund’s mission "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 PP&L ratepayers." Research projects are not eligible for grant financing.

The SEF was founded in November 1999 as a result of the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission electric utility restructuring proceedings. The SEF was a key component of the joint settlement with PP&L, Inc. (now PP&L Electric Utilities Corporation) and the PUC. The initial SEF funding of approximately $20.5 million will be generated over six years through a rate surcharge on PPL ratepayers. . See DSIRE's summary of Pennsylvania's Public Benefits Funds for more information.
