Grant funding comes from voluntary Greenpower customer subscriptions. EWEB developed the Greenpower Program in 2008 and since then thousands of EWEB customers have chosen to support clean, renewable energy by enrolling in EWEB Greenpower

In addition to buying renewable energy and funding the Greenpower Grant, Greenpower subscriptions fund EWEBs solar electric program and K-12 education and events relating to renewable energy and carbon emissions.

In 2021, Greenpower customers awarded two grants, one to Friends of Trees and the other to Eugene Mission. Friends of Trees used their grant to fund a large-scale tree planting effort with a focus on urban areas and communities historically excluded from the benefits of green space. The project also included educating volunteers in tree stewardship to promote more sustainable neighborhoods. The Eugene Mission installed a solar energy system for a new Learning Center on its campus to assist unhoused families and community members. Read more about their projects here.

What will be the next project funded through Greenpower? Voting for the winner of the Greenpower Grant will begin on April 7, 2023 and is open to all current Greenpower subscribers. Learn more about the Greenpower Program and how to subscribe here
