EPUD Announces 2018 GREEN Grant
This month, EPUD kicks off its fifth annual GREEN Grant competition!
The grant offers up to $40,000* to help fund new renewable energy projects in our communities.
EPUD offers the grant through its green power program, GREEN (an acronym for Giving Renewable Energy to Emerald Neighborhoods). The grant is funded by GREEN subscriptions, and only GREEN participants can vote on who will receive the grant.
Since its introduction in 2014, the GREEN Grant has helped fund four major renewable energy projects, including solar panel systems at the Creswell Food Pantry, Pleasant Hill Elementary School, and Mid Lane Cares’ Fern Ridge Service Center, and a “Solar Roller” mobile education and emergency preparedness station for Lost Valley Education Center.
Who can apply for the 2018 green grant?
Non-profit organizations, academic institutions, and public institutions in EPUD’s service territory are invited to apply. Organizations must have a current account with EPUD to be eligible. Get additional eligibility requirements HERE.
