ABOUT KERN ENERGY FOUNDATION
The Kern Energy Foundation was created in 2015 to educate the public about the many benefits of all facets of the energy industry. Energy is the lifeblood of our local economy – providing quality careers, generating significant tax revenue to fund vital local programs, creating ways for consumers to power their homes and cars, and providing materials for lifesaving technologies such as medical equipment and medicine. The Foundation, a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization, is in cooperation with local energy companies from the solar, wind, and petroleum industries. The bi-annual Kern Energy Festival began in 2015.
