On Friday, the Solar Energy and Economic Developme On Friday, the Solar Energy and Economic Development Fund (SEED) released its Request for Proposals for six public agencies in the Sierra Nevada! This effort was organized by Optony, Strategic Energy Innovations and the Alliance's Climate Fellows.⁠
