When you sign up for GREEN (Emerald’s renewable energy program), you support clean energy and a healthier environment right here in your own community.

GREEN subscribers play an important role in bringing renewable energy into our neighborhoods and protecting the environment for future generations.

Only GREEN subscribers get to vote for their favorite renewable energy project through the GREEN Grant Program each year!

Once you’ve signed up, be sure to VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE FINALIST! Come back to this page in November to cast your vote!

Local organizations can reduce their electric bills and support renewable energy through a $40,000 grant, provided by Emerald PUD’s GREEN Grant program.

IMPORTANT NOTE: 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. This then 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.

Previous winners include Creswell Food Pantry, Lost Valley Education and Event Center, Pleasant Hill School District, and Mid Lane Cares (pictured above), and The Love Project Food Pantry.


To be eligible for the GREEN Grant, your:

  • Organization must be an Emerald PUD customer-owner and a non-profit organization, academic institution, or public institution.
  • Project must be a renewable energy project that is directly related to Emerald’s vision to improve the lives of customers by delivering reliable utility services.
