PUC To Host Statewide Sustainable Energy Board Meeting Feb. 8

The Pennsylvania Sustainable Energy Board, in conjunction with the Public Utility Commission will hold its annual meeting on February 8 in Harrisburg.
The meeting will provide updates from the regional Sustainable Energy Funds and update Commonwealth agencies and other interested groups on the funds’ activities.
Some of the projects being discussed at the meeting will include the following:
-- The PECO Sustainable Development Fund will present information on its board election, planned resumption of grant making in 2018, operation of a community solar project at the Navy Yard and lending activity in 2017.
-- The Metropolitan-Edison Co. and Pennsylvania Electric Co. SEF will discuss 2017 grant and loan approvals and plans for a strategic planning process in 2018 to develop a realignment in the way funds are allocated.
-- The West Penn Power Co. SEF will provide a summary of funding activities during the last 24 months, planned future activities and will showcase its recent funding commitments to the construction of high performance buildings, institutional-scale solar PV, and upcoming conferences in 2018.
-- The PPL Sustainable Energy Fund will provide an overview of its Non-Profit Energy Makeover and Net Zero Building, along with updates on Energypath 2017 and 2018.
The PASEB was originally established by the Commission in 1999 to provide oversight, guidance and technical assistance to the regional sustainable energy boards that fund projects such as wind farms, solar power systems, smart thermostat programs and the construction of buildings using energy efficient technologies.  
On Aug. 7, 2003, the Commission issued an order further defining the role of the PASEB. That order charged the PASEB with holding an annual meeting; enhancing communications among the four funds and state agencies; and establishing bylaws and a “best business practices” model.
The meeting will be held in Hearing Room 4 of the Commonwealth Keystone Building, 400 North Street, Harrisburg starting at 11:00.  In the event of inclement weather, the annual meeting will be held February 22  at the same location and time.
