SACE | Southern Alliance for Clean Energy

Message From the Executive Director


I have long believed that energy issues and climate change are the most important challenges that face humanity. I also know that solutions exist; renewable energy and energy efficiency are the path toward a clean energy economy in the 21st century. Today, coal retirements are being announced and energy efficiency programs adopted throughout our region at a rapid pace, displacing the need for continued investment in dirty, high risk energy sources. But the question remains: Will we make the necessary big changes to the ways we produce and consume energy in order to protect the health of our communities and natural environments?

Thank you for making our work possible, your continued support is essential in helping to push for sustained changes in our region. We look forward to a future where many generations will experience the natural beauty of the Southeast that we enjoy today.

For the Earth,


Stephen A. Smith
