Alternative Energy Credits Program for Pennsylvania
Penn State Cooperative Extension works to help citizens better understand and take advantage of the opportunities and challenges that are associated with marketing alternative energy credits (AECs) for energy production. Credits can be sold for greenhouse gas reducing activities or other pollution-reducing measures, but the most common form of credit is for the production of renewable electricity. Alternative energy credits are a relatively new opportunity for Pennsylvanians, and they can dramatically improve the economics of renewable energy production. However, it is often not a simple matter to sell your credits, or to get a good deal on them.
Penn State's AEC Program: What do we do?
Educational Information: We create informational material to help educate people on the "ins and outs" of alternative energy credits. The links at the right side of the page lead to those resources.
Presentations and Workshops: Penn State specialists regularly deliver presentations on alternative energy credits at workshops and meetings throughout the state.
The PA Alternative Energy Generators Co-op: Penn State Cooperative Extension administers this cooperative venture that allows smaller producers of alternative energy to "band together" - leading to an easier and more financially worthwhile way to market their energy credits.
