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 2021, there were two Greenpower Grant recipients: Friends of Trees and The Eugene Mission. Friends of Trees used the Greenpower grant to help fund their Neighborhood and Community Tree Project to plant 500 new trees, and leverage the planting of hundreds more. The Eugene Mission used the Greenpower grant to help fund the installation of a 14.62 kilowatt photovoltaic solar array on the roof of their Learning Center which helps support vocational and life skills training for the residential guests at The Mission. What will be the next project funded through Greenpower?
