NC GreenPower is working hard to create positive environmental and economic impacts, but we need your help! For as little as $4 per month, you can help us improve our home state and lay the groundwork for a cleaner, brighter future.
BEMC is proud to support NC GreenPower, an independent nonprofit improving the quality of our state’s environment through a program that connects consumers with green energy and carbon offset providers. Their goal is to supplement the state’s existing power supply with more green energy – that is, energy generated from renewable energy sources like the sun, wind, water, and organic matter. NC GreenPower also offers carbon offsets to address growing concerns about the impact of greenhouse gases on our ecosystem.
NC GreenPower accepts financial contributions from both citizens and businesses to help offset the costs associated with producing green energy and mitigating greenhouse gases. Donations are made in “blocks” of $4, and there is no limit to the number of $4 blocks that an individual, organization, or business can contribute.
And when you contribute to renewable energy, you get the benefits of 50 kWh* of green energy on the grid plus you are helping to install solar PV arrays at NC K-12 schools. Contributions to carbon offsets help mitigate 1,000 lbs of greenhouse gases. *Change from 100 kWh to 50 kWh as of April 1, 2015. Every $4 donation to the renewable energy product will be split to provide $2 to generators and $2 to the Solar Schools pilot program.
