Since our founding as the Renewable Energy Center in 2005, we have educated a diverse number of individuals, farms, schools, municipalities, and businesses in Pennsylvania and beyond. The organization identifies barriers to sustainable energy use and sets up
programs to overcome them through outreach and research
. The university's wind analysis has led to more than 200 MW of installed wind energy capacity in PA and our programs have encouraged Pennsylvanians to pursue a variety of clean energy projects. In the spirit of Saint Francis, our commitment is to preserving the
environment while serving the community. Learn more below!
