THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT, CLEAN, & GREEN

Sustainable Future

The United Nations World Commission on Environment and Development states "sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."  In short, sustainability is about our children, grandchildren, and the world we leave them.  SELCO is striving to be a clean energy leader with our newly adopted power supply policy and Net Zero Roadmap. 

SELCO's Net Zero Roadmap increases our carbon-free power percentage by 5% each year over the next 11 years, resulting in 100% carbon-free power by 2032, well ahead of the carbon-free goal of 2050 set by the Commonwealth. We believe this accelerated schedule is in alignment with customer priorities, meets or exceeds community goals for net-zero emissions, and helps establish SELCO as an industry leader.
