From volunteer events to donations to internships, our values drive us to be an asset to our communities.

Community hero

Community is at the heart of the work we do. In addition to our mission, we endeavor to be a great employer, responsible business partner, good neighbor, and asset to our communities through various donations, education programs, and other opportunities.

By creating, hosting, and giving financially to programs focused on science, technology, engineering, and math education, we are committed to teaching the next generation of inventors, manufacturing experts, and designers that science and engineering aren’t just necessary—they’re inspiring, rewarding, and exciting too.


We support organizations and programs that enhance well-being and provide food and shelter.

Disaster Relief

When major disasters occur, they often leave residents and industries without electric power. We stand ready to help our customers and the communities they serve by discounting products destined for disaster relief, expediting deliveries, and providing 24/7 field support.

Community-University Relations

University Relations

SEL is committed to developing the next generation of engineers through higher education. We offer support in many forms, including endowments, equipment donations, scholarships, university advisory boards, conference participation, and internships. Partnering with universities across the country has been a longstanding tradition at SEL, as we recognize that the future of electric power rests in the hands and minds of young inventors and innovators.

Community K12

K–12 Outreach

Through the support of science, technology, engineering, and math education for K–12 students, we hope to spark a desire in young innovators to learn more about engineering and manufacturing. We’ve designed a portfolio of opportunities, including hands-on field trips, classroom visits, and immersive events. All activities are led by our professionals and equipped with SEL supplies.
