Basic Information

The Met-Ed / Penelec Sustainable Energy Fund is beginning a strategic planning process to review past funding and identify goals and focus areas for future grantmaking. This process was last completed in 2018 with the help of the Institute for Energy at St. Francis University. That process resulted in the fund beginning to offer larger, annual grant opportunities rotating between the focus areas of Green Buildings, Workforce Development, and R&D.
As the fund looks to 2023 and beyond, it is clear that the landscape has changed. The global pandemic and supply chain challenges have significantly impacted programs and projects while the Build Back Better legislation promises broad new opportunities for sustainable energy. Please help us plan for the future by completing the survey below. It should take no more than 15 minutes.
Thank you!
