Nebraskans for Solar and Heartland Hope Mission are partnering on the installation of a solar energy system on their building at 2021 U Street in Omaha to help reduce their energy bills for the next 25 years. The money saved can instead be used for their programs. 
 
Nebraskans for Solar is raising funds for this new Green Watts for Good project for #GivingTuesday402. Their goal is to raise $10,000 and Nebraskans for Solar will match individual donations up to a total of $10,000.
