Funds for the grants come from voluntary Greenpower customer donations designated for reinvestment in local renewable projects and programs. Since 2007, thousands of EWEB customers have chosen to support clean, renewable energy by purchasing EWEB Greenpower. They buy $1.50 or $10 "blocks" of Greenpower, or voluntarily dedicate 100 percent of their energy use to Greenpower by paying an extra penny per kilowatt-hour of consumption.
EWEB developed the Greenpower Grant Program to help reinvest some of these funds into renewable energy projects, education or those that help offset the community's carbon footprint. The annual grants are open to tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, academic institutions or government and other public agencies.
Since 2009, the program has awarded more than $1 million in grants to 19 local nonprofit projects.
