Renewable Energy Supplemental Environmental Projects

Supplemental Environmental Projects are a policy vehicle that can provide funding for renewable energy projects. Renewable energy projects can stimulate the economy, help ensure energy security, and improve the quality of the air and water. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency designed Supplemental Environmental Projects to give companies that violate environmental regulations an alternative to standard fines. When a company violates environmental regulations, it has the option to pay a fine to the state or federal government or volunteer to fund environmentally friendly projects. These projects can provide a positive outcome for the company and the community. For more information on supplemental environmental projects, please see the following publications.
