We are excited to share the release of our 2022 Annual Report. The Philadelphia Energy Campaign launched in 2016 with the leadership of City Council President Darrell Clarke (5th District) to drive $1 billion in investment in energy efficiency and clean energy, creating 10,000 jobs over 10 years. Completing its sixth year in 2022, the Philadelphia Energy Campaign is performing as projected, creating living wage, family-sustaining jobs while supporting solutions to Philadelphia’s biggest challenges, like public health and climate impacts, poverty, education, housing preservation, and neighborhood stabilization.
Unlike in previous years, 78% of that investment came from PEA programs and not from major energy retrofits with the City or the School District. While those projects continue to move forward in their now-standard procurement and construction cycles, programs like Solarize Philly, C-PACE, Built to Last and PEA’s workforce development programs kept the momentum going and accounted for $70MM of that investment. Since inception, the Energy Campaign has deployed more than $380MM in projects and created 3,275 jobs in total. It remains on track to hit its $1 billion, 10,000 jobs goal ahead of schedule.
