Although Greenpower revenues continued to decline again in 2020, private citizens and local businesses came together to raise nearly $185,000.

We know many community members share this commitment to protect the environment. If "green" business practices are an important factor in your buying decisions, consider choosing one of our Greenpower businesses next time you're shopping.
We reinvest Greenpower funds in the local community through our Greenpower Grant program. Since 2007, thousands of our customers have voluntarily chosen to support clean renewable energy and the environment through participation in the Greenpower program.
This grant program funds high-impact projects and programs that drive advancements in renewable energy for local customers, with emphasis on EWEB products, resources, and priorities. If we receive five or more applications, our registered Greenpower customers vote to determine which nonprofit organizations' high-impact projects will receive grants worth up to $50,000 each.
Grants are open to schools, nonprofit organizations, and other public organizations.See 2021 Greenpower Grant Candidates
