Greenpower Grant Program

The Greenpower Grant is a program funded by Greenpower subscribers that awards $50,000 to a non-profit, school, or public organization to contribute to climate resilience or renewable energy.

In 2021 subscribers selected The Eugene Mission and Friends of Trees to each receive a grant. Read more about their projects here.

EWEB developed the Greenpower Grant Program in 2007 to help reinvest some of these funds into renewable energy projects, clean energy education, the adoption of emerging technologies, or projects that increase carbon sequestration.

The grant is open to tax-exempt 501(c)(3) and (4) nonprofit organizations, schools, and academic institutions, or government and other public agencies. Applications for the grant could include the installation of renewable energy systems, battery storage systems, research or studies centering on renewable energy, educational curriculum or workshop development, or carbon emission offsets.

In 2018, Friends of Trees used its Greenpower grant to plant trees and shrubs along roadways in west Eugene. The project aimed to increase carbon sequestration and engage community members to volunteer and invest in a sustainable future. In 2016, EWEB Greenpower grant winner Buena Vista Elementary School installed an 8.6-kilowatt photovoltaic solar array. What will be the next project funded through Greenpower?
