The Philadelphia Energy Authority (PEA), an independent municipal authority, is working to build a robust, equitable clean energy economy in Philadelphia. Chartered by City Council and the Mayor in 2010, PEA is a quasi-governmental entity based in City Hall. In 2016, in partnership with City Council President Darrell Clarke, PEA launched the Philadelphia Energy Campaign, a $1 billion, 10-year investment in energy efficiency and clean energy projects to create 10,000 jobs. Through 2022, PEA has helped launch over $380MM in projects and created 3,275 jobs. We focus on municipal assets, schools, low- and moderate-income housing, small businesses, and commercial and industrial projects and programs. We view energy as a high-impact tool for reducing poverty, improving education, strengthening communities, and leveraging public investment.
The Good Jobs Challenge Project Manager (GJC-PM) is a pivotal role within the Philadelphia Energy Authority (PEA), responsible for managing and overseeing the implementation of the Good Jobs Challenge project funded by the U.S. Economic Development Administration via Philadelphia Works.
