Scott Elias

Director of State Affairs, Mid-Atlantic

As SEIA's Director of State Affairs, Mid-Atlantic, Scott manages and supports SEIA's policy efforts in a number of states, including Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Washington, D.C and West Virginia. 

Originally from Oceanside, New York, Scott graduated with High Honors from Wesleyan University’s College of Social Studies, a rigorous multidisciplinary major focusing on Economics, History, Government, and Political and Social Theory.

Always passionate about tackling climate change, Scott’s roots in the clean energy industry began in high school when he proposed that his school district invest in solar. This passion continued at Wesleyan, where he organized a Climate Change conference that laid out organizing, technological, and policy solutions to the climate crisis and explored how taking action on climate change can improve social justice, create good jobs, grow business, and enhance national security.

In his spare time, Scott enjoys hanging out with his rescue dog, Rigby, and exploring the outdoors, sports, HBO, Netflix, and rooting for the Green Bay Packers.
