Grant Program

The 2021 GREEN Grant Competition is now closed.

Important note: An organization does not need to own its building to apply for a GREEN grant.

Grant Winner: Mid Lane Cares

Emerald’s annual GREEN Grant opportunity is a program that provides funding for the construction of new, non‐residential, renewable energy projects for eligible customer‐owners. Funding for the grant opportunity is derived from Emerald’s voluntary GREEN program by which customers can choose 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 include Creswell Food Pantry, Lost Valley Education and Event Center, Pleasant Hill School District, and Mid Lane Cares, and The Love Project Food Pantry.
