Become a Contributor

Non-Profit Renewable Energy Program

Formed in 2003, NC GreenPower is an independent, nonprofit whose mission is to expand public knowledge and acceptance of cleaner energy technologies to all North Carolinians through local, community-based initiatives. NC GreenPower improves our environment by supporting in-state renewable energy, carbon offset projects and providing grants for educational solar installations at N.C. K-12 schools. Your donation will add more renewable energy to North Carolina’s power supply while also enhancing our students’ education through their Solar+ Schools program.

Donate and Make a Difference

A simple $4 tax-deductible contribution per month adds one block of 125 kilowatt hours (kWh) of green energy to North Carolina's electric grid, while also supporting solar projects at schools. You may donate towards as many blocks as you would like, and they will be added to your electric bill; Tideland EMC will then forward your contribution to NC GreenPower.

Over a year, your monthly $4 contribution will add 1,500 kWh of green energy to North Carolina's power supply and help install solar on school campuses across the state. That's the equivalent of not burning 1,215 pounds of coal or like planting 240 trees! You’ll also help to provide STEM education for 62 students - what a great return on your $4 monthly investment!
