Saint Francis University established the Renewable Energy Center in 2005 as a reflection of its commitment to improving the environment and serving our communities. The Renewable Energy Center identifies the barriers to renewable energy use and sets up programs to overcome them.
"St. Francis University's meteorological tower and performance data helped Blue Mountain Ski Area turn a nice idea into a defendable business proposition. Without their program, the project might still be just a nice idea."
"Through your program we were able to identify our resources and maximize the potential for previously unutilized land."
"As a board member interested in the possible construction of a wind turbine, we do not have the expertise in this area to make an educated decision and we rely on the services of the REC to guide us through this process. Without the funding provided through the REC we would not be able to pursue this venture."
"On behalf of the staff of Pennsylvania Rural Development, I would like to personally thank you for presenting the training "Renewable Energy" at the Pennsylvania State Meeting on September 2, 2010. I know the employees that attended your training enjoyed and appreciated the information and presentation that you shared with them - this was clear through the comments that were on the evaluation forms. Again, my staff and I thank you for providing training."
“I have to say that since I made the transition from big market Fortune 500 to the Southern Alleghenies, yours is by far the best presentation I have seen.”
