NC GreenPower

NC GreenPower is working hard to create positive environmental and economic impacts in North Carolina, but we need your help! For as little as $4 per month, you can help us improve our home state by making a monthly donation through your utility bill. You can also make a credit card donation through our website here. Or contribute as little as $1 to a Solar Schools fundraising campaign and lay the groundwork for a cleaner, brighter future for our students!

NC GreenPower is an independent nonprofit improving the quality of our state’s environment by supporting renewable energy, carbon offset projects and providing grants for solar installations at K-12 schools.

Our goal is to supplement the state’s existing power supply with more green energy – that is, energy generated from renewable energy sources like the sun, wind, water, and organic matter. NC GreenPower also offers carbon offsets to address growing concerns about the impact of greenhouse gases on our ecosystem. Donations to the program also support our Solar Schools pilot, bringing solar PV, curriculum and hands-on learning tools to students in North Carolina.

Donation Types

Renewable Energy & Solar Schools

1. A typical $4 contribution goes a long way by adding one block of 50 kilowatt-hours of green energy to North Carolina’s power supply, plus you are helping to install solar PV arrays at NC K-12 schools.

2. Large-volume users – usually from the corporate sector – may contribute towards 100 or more blocks per month at a rate of $2.50 per block with a different energy mix.

Carbon Offset product

Every $4 monthly contribution will mitigate 1,000 pounds of carbon dioxide or carbon dioxide equivalents (other greenhouse gas emissions).

Brokered Bid Product

The Brokered Bid option provides customers interested in annually spending $15,000 or more on renewable energy credits or carbon offsets with a more competitive North Carolina option.


Reasons to Donate

1) It’s affordable and tax deductible.

For as little as $4 a month, you can help protect our environment and create a brighter future for our state. Your monthly tax-deductible contribution will add green energy to North Carolina’s power supply or mitigate harmful carbon dioxide emissions. NC GreenPower is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Contributions are tax-deductible; however, consult your tax advisor.

2) It supports economic growth in North Carolina.

Supporting NC GreenPower is an effective way to advance local projects. Most people want to do something to help, but limited resources and time make it difficult to act. NC GreenPower provides you an opportunity to support projects for a cleaner North Carolina.

3) It’s clean, green and sustainable.

With green energy sources such as the sun, wind, and organic matter, we can generate cleaner electricity. It’s a great way to protect our environment and preserve our natural resources. Carbon offsets help mitigate harmful greenhouse gases that may contribute to global warming. A cleaner environment means a healthier one.

4) It’s smart.

Traditional energy sources like fossil fuels are nonrenewable and inevitably will run out. Working today to build our supply of renewable energy sources will give us a more secure energy future. Plus, it’s one step toward fuel independence.
