Formed in 2003, NC GreenPower is a statewide, nonprofit organization working to help improve the quality of the environment in North Carolina. We do this with voluntary contributions that we receive from residents and businesses that donate to us directly or through their utility bills to support local renewable energy and carbon offset projects. Electric utilities across the state help us by marketing the program to their customers and collecting donations for us through utility bills. All of the money is then simply passed through to NC GreenPower. Renewable energy funds are used to pay approved generators across the state for each kilowatt-hour of green energy they produce and put onto the electric grid from their project. Carbon offset contributions are used to pay carbon mitigation projects for the tons of greenhouse gases that are destroyed from their project. Funds support local projects and help create N.C. jobs. In 2015, NC GreenPower launched a new program to support solar PV installations at North Carolina K-12 schools.
