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.

Late July, Serenity Soular, Energy Coordinating Agency and Renewable Homes, LLC will compete for big bucks in Energy Sprout, held during statewide energy conference Energypath

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.”
