This month, Emerald People's Utility District (EPUD) opens its 2020 GREEN Grant program to local non-profit organizations and schools. The winning organization(s) will receive up to $40,000 in grant dollars to help build a new renewable energy project at their site. The project benefits both the organization and the surrounding community by helping the group save money on electricity costs and freeing up funds that can then be used to provide additional community services.
Previous winners of the GREEN Grant include Creswell Food Pantry, Lost Valley Education and Event Center, Pleasant Hill School District, Mid Lane Cares, and The Love Project.
