Go GREEN and
Make Your Voice Heard

By subscribing to GREEN (Emerald’s renewable energy program), you support clean energy and a healthier environment right here in your own community.

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

In addition, only GREEN participants get to vote for their favorite renewable energy project through the GREEN Grant Program each year!

Sign up for GREEN and get your chance to vote on future GREEN Grant projects.

Voting has closed for the 2017 GREEN Grant. Watch for our announcement on this year’s winner coming soon, and check back with us again next spring for information on the 2018 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. 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, 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.
