Headquartered in Raleigh, NC GreenPower is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit improving our state’s environment by supporting renewable energy, carbon offset projects and providing grants for solar installations at K-12 schools. Since 2003, our donors have helped to support more than 1,000 projects right here in North Carolina.
NC GreenPower is supported entirely by voluntary contributions from citizens and businesses across the state. In the past, we have applied for grants to help cover our administration and marketing expenses but we depend primarily on donations to support our projects.
Contributions to renewable energy and carbon offsets are given by individuals and businesses either directly to us, or through their utility. The utilities help us with marketing the program to their customers, billing and collecting donations, and they pass contributions in their entirety to NC GreenPower.
NC GreenPower only keeps $1 out of every $4 for marketing and administration program operations. NC GreenPower has applied for grants to help pay for most marketing expenses. The remaining $3 of all contributions are always reserved to assist with our education and outreach efforts and to support either renewable energy generation or carbon offset mitigation. Starting on April 1, 2015, donations to renewable energy will also help support our new Solar Schools pilot program!
