The Pennsylvania Sustainable Energy Board (PASEB) and the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) plan to discuss updates to Sustainable Energy Funds (SEFs) during its annual meeting Jan. 15.
The meeting, scheduled for 11 a.m. in Hearing Room 1 of the Commonwealth Keystone Building in Harrisburg, will update state agencies on the funds' activities.
The Pennsylvania Electric Co. and Metropolitan-Edison Co. plan to discuss its mapping project, which was completed last year, and how funding has been allocated since the project began.
Agencies can also expect an update from the West Penn Power Co. on projects and programs that it co-funded, and a detailed presentation on the PennSEF bond finance program. The PennSEF program was started recently with the PA Treasury Department.
PPL Electric Utilities Corp. will highlight its LED lighting project at the Harrisburg International Airport during the meeting as well.
Finally, the PECO service territory is expected to show a new model that allows third party providers to finance instead of the building owner or borrower.
Officials are expected to attend from the Office of Consumer Advocate, the Department of Environmental Protection, the Pennsylvania Environmental Council and the Department of Community and Economic Development.
PASEB was created by the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission in 1999 in order to give oversight, technical assistance and guidance to sustainable energy boards in the region that fund energy efficient technologies such as solar power systems, wind farms and smart thermostat programs.
