IREC makes affordable, reliable, sustainable energy and energy efficiency possible for more Americans. Our transformative national leadership advances clean energy regulatory policy and a job-ready workforce, which together support a rapidly growing segment of our economy.

IREC counts on public and private funds to produce the success we’ve been at the forefront for more than three decades, like:

  • Working state by state for renewable energy access that’s fair and affordable for all Americans;
  • Producing trusted, thought leading independent reports and timely, fact-based resources relied on by public and private sector decision makers;
  • Ensuring a qualified clean energy workforce through training standards and best practices that protect consumers’ investments in clean energy technologies; and
  • Empowering consumers with tools that make the complex process of going solar more understandable and transparent.

IREC’s Sources of Support

Did you know that IREC has significantly diversified its funding sources in recent years? From 77% government grants just three years ago, our programs will rely on only 27% government sources in 2018. The rest is a combination of private foundations, corporate, and individual support
