PA State Energy Program
Linking Energy and the Environment
The Pennsylvania State Energy Program achieves environmental improvement by directing time and resources toward expanding the use of renewable energy and reducing our overall energy usage. Promoting less energy usage and switching to less polluting fuels has a number of benefits:
- Environmental - Renewable energy and energy efficiency mean less air pollution (including mercury, nitrogen oxides and carbon dioxide), less water consumption and less wastes.
- Economic - Renewable energy and energy efficiency mean more opportunities for technology development and job growth.
- Quality of Life - Renewable energy and energy efficiency mean less ground level ozone, less acid rain and less particulate matter in the air. Ultimately, this means improved health.
- Security - Renewable energy and energy efficiency mean less dependence on foreign oil and more self-sufficiency.
Pennsylvania's State Energy Program is funded by the
U.S. Department of Energy. Each year, Pennsylvania DEP receives a base grant.
