Clean Energy & Air

The South’s dependence on coal and natural gas have burdened our communities with harmful air pollution and made our region a significant contributor to climate change: if the South were a country, it would be the tenth-largest emitter of carbon in the world. Recognizing that the South is central to any solution to climate change, SELC plays a vital role moving our region to a new energy economy, one that provides cleaner, more affordable energy options to all residents through investments in solar power, wind, and energy efficiency.
