What We Do

Nebraskans for Solar works with allied nonprofits and agencies, schools, businesses and individuals to advance renewable energy in our state and to raise awareness about the economic and environmental benefits of renewable energy to our local communities.

We sponsor two programs:

Green Watts for Good
We seek partnerships through our Green Watts for Good Program on solar projects as part of community development and revitalization, such as the recently-completed Seventy Five North project in the Highlander Neighborhood in North Omaha, as well as solar installations on Nebraska food pantries and homeless shelters, especially in areas impacted by flooding. This is a way nonprofits can reduce their energy bills, money they can use to support their programs and mission.

Nebraska Solar Schools
Nebraska Solar Schools’ Education & Development Program provides resources for K-12 teachers to facilitate integration of renewable energy education into their classrooms and after-school programs. Resources are also provided for those who want to install a photovoltaic (PV) system at their school.

Interesting Info

Nebraskans for Solar sponsors a series of educational events for all ages, including workshops, presentations and tours.
Our primary goal is to raise funds to install solar on Nebraska food pantries & homeless shelters to reduce their electricity bills for the next 25 years.
For our 2020 Omaha Gives fundraising campaign we are partnering with No Moe Empty Pots on a Green Watts for Good project.
