The Met Ed Penelec Sustainable Energy Fund has two grant opportunities available.
All applications are due by August 31, 2022.
The Met-Ed / Penelec Sustainable Energy Fund has one grant of $300,000-$500,000 available to support the construction of a green, sustainable, and/or natural building or the renovation of an existing building using these energy efficiency principles. A competitive application will highlight the energy savings inherent in applying green, sustainable, and/or natural building techniques in a community where the building can serve as an example to others. The amount of the grant award will be dependent on the types of clean energy systems and technologies that are implemented. Projects can be new construction or a retrofit, but must be completed within three years and located within the territories served by Met Ed or Penelec in Pennsylvania (see map).

The Met-Ed / Penelec Sustainable Energy Fund seeks to award one grant of up to $100,000 to support clean energy workforce development programs within the Met-Ed and Penelec territories (see map). Requests for this funding opportunity should focus on implementation of a workforce development program that can be deployed in 2023. A successful program will contribute to a clean energy economy within the context of workforce challenges affecting the broader economy. Funding may be provided as a one-time grant or over multiple installments as appropriate for the program. Grant progress reports will be assigned and effective programs may be considered for additional future funding.
