What We Do
We sponsor two programs:
Green Watts for Good:
We partner on photovoltaic (PV) projects with Nebraska food pantries, homeless shelters, children’s homes and other nonprofit organizations that focus on food and housing security in our communities. Our current partnering nonprofits include No More Empty Pots in North Omaha, Heartland Hope Mission in South Omaha, Masonic Eastern Star Home for Children in Fremont and Seventy Five North Corporation in North Omaha. We request matching funds but do not require them.
Energy is generally a major expense for nonprofits that provide a hand up to people in need in our local communities. Donating solar energy through our Green Watts for Good program is a way philanthropists of all ages can help nonprofits save on their electricity bills each month for a very long time, as solar panels typically last 25 or more years. Part of our Green Watts for Good Program is helping nonprofits save even more money through energy conservation and efficiency.
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.
