Three local organizations will compete across two statewide competitions that prompt participants to develop sustainable energy solutions for Pennsylvania businesses and communities of the future.
Energy Sprout, hosted by Allentown-based nonprofit Sustainable Energy Fund (SEF), is heavily dominated by Philadelphia organizations (and interestingly, no Allentown-based organizations have been selected as finalists). Competitors are split between community-based organizations (grand prize of $25,000) and businesses (grand prize $100,000).
Here are the finalists:
- Energy Coordinating Agency (Philadelphia)
- Saint Francis University Institute for Energy (Loretto)
- Serenity Soular (Philadelphia)
- CEWA Technologies, Inc. (Wyomissing)
- EthosGen (Wilkes-Barre)
- Renewable Homes, LLC (Philadelphia)
All finalists will walk away with a monetary prize. John Costlow, president and CEO of SEF, said Energy Sprout is an “excellent opportunity to focus on Pennsylvania’s sustainable energy future.”-30-
