About Us

Our Mission

Conservatives for Clean Energy educates the public and decision-makers on the economic benefits of clean energy and advocates for continued investments across the Southeast.

Our Organization

Clean energy has quickly become an exciting sector in the economy of the Southeast, creating thousands of new jobs, billions of dollars in investments, especially in our rural communities, and creating new business and manufacturing opportunities.  Clean energy is also delivering new, innovative technologies that are allowing our homes, businesses, and schools to reduce energy waste or generate our own cleaner, more affordable energy on-site.

We strongly believe that we’re just getting started with clean energy opportunities in the Southeast.  Conservatives for Clean Energy looks forward to continuing our work to spotlight the growing conservative support for our clean energy economy in the Southeast.

Conservatives for Clean Energy is a proud partner of the Conservative Energy Network, a national network of state-based organizations focused on promoting clean energy innovation in 24 states throughout the country.
