Grant Winner: Mid Lane Cares

Emerald PUD has a long-standing commitment to our communities and to renewable energy.  We have supported solar electric installations on our building and in several high schools we serve. We have also supported wind power and even biomethane energy production with the Short Mountain Methane Power Plant. Learn more at our Short Mountain Landfill Gas page.

Emerald’s annual GREEN Grant program provides eligible schools and non-profits an opportunity to win up to $40,000 in funding for the construction of new, non‐residential, renewable energy projects. Funding for the grant opportunity is derived from Emerald’s voluntary GREEN program which allows customer-owners to support renewable energy development both in the Pacific Northwest and in our own communities. GREEN program participants have the opportunity every year to select their favorite project to receive the grant funds.

Only GREEN subscribers get to vote for their favorite renewable energy project through the GREEN Grant Program each year! View our Renewable Energy Program page to sign up for GREEN.

Previous winners of the GREEN Grant include Creswell Food Pantry, Lost Valley Education and Event Center, Pleasant Hill School District, Mid Lane Cares, The Love Project Food Pantry, and Al Kennedy High School.
