You may have heard of the wind energy assistance we provide to communities, but at Saint Francis University's Renewable Energy Center (REC) we do more than that. In the spirit of Saint Francis, our commitment is to preserving the environment while serving the community.
We provide information about alternative energy solutions (biomass, geothermal, hydro, solar, and of course, wind). We also lead businesses, schools, and communities in the development of cost-effective, environmentally sound energy alternatives.
If you are looking to install a renewable energy system, then this is the place to start! Learn how to analyze your energy situation, choose the right source for your needs, find funding, and more. Let our tips guide you on the path to a successful project.>> Begin Here! <<

Since our founding in 2005, we have educated more than 2,000 people, schools, municipalities, and businesses each year, and our wind analysis has led to more than $60+ million in proposed community wind investment in PA. We provide wind education at town meetings, conferences, and classrooms, and will assist in developing township wind ordinances. We also offer wind project investment analysis and development consulting. The REC is here to help you make your renewable energy a reality (and to help the earth at the same time). Please learn more about our programs and resources below.
Whether you are a homeowner, farmer, business, school, student, developer, or policy maker, our services can benefit you.
The REC also maintains PA's first Renewable Energy Online Business Directory with listings from more than 100 companies.
