GREEN Grant Program
Go GREEN and
The application deadline for the 2017 GREEN Grant was March 15, 2017. We are no longer accepting applications for this year’s GREEN Grant.
Local organizations can reduce their electric bills and support renewable energy through a $40,000 grant, provided by Emerald PUD’s GREEN Grant program. Please note that an organization does not need to own its building to apply for a GREEN grant
Emerald’s GREEN Grant Program dedicates funds to local organizations interested in renewable energy projects. These projects help groups save money on electricity costs, which in turn, frees up funds that could be used to provide additional community services.
Grant funding comes directly from customers enrolled in Emerald PUD’s GREEN program. These customers also vote to select the winning applicant.
To be eligible for this grant, an organization must be an Emerald PUD customer-owner and a non-profit organization, academic institution or a public institution. Previous winners include Creswell Food Bank, Pleasant Hill School District, and Lost Valley Education and Event Center.
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.
To be eligible for this grant, your:
- Organization must be an Emerald PUD customer-owner and a non-profit organization, academic institution, or a public institution.
- Project must have a renewable energy focus that is directly related to Emerald’s vision to improve the lives of customers by delivering reliable utility services.
