Our Mission

The Southern Alliance for Clean Energy promotes responsible and equitable energy choices to ensure clean, safe, and healthy communities throughout the Southeast.

Who We Are

Founded in 1985, the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy (SACE) has over 30 years’ experience as a leading voice calling for smart energy policies in our region that help protect our quality of life and treasured places. Our expert staff is uniquely poised to tackle energy challenges and promote equitable outcomes that help our region’s communities harness the environmental and economic opportunities presented by clean, renewable energy.

In addition to our technical and policy advocacy work, SACE is also on the ground in local communities throughout our region working to mobilize concerned citizens and to elevate the conversation around the dangers of climate change and the importance of clean energy choices.
