As people continue to use energy and create a larger carbon footprint as a result of changes in modern society, it’s more important than ever to address the fact that these activities have more of an impact on the environment. NC GreenPower connects people to renewable energy and carbon offset projects. By offering anyone the ability to support a cleaner future for North Carolina for as little as $4 a month, this organization bridges the gap between those who are unable to develop their own projects with those who need additional financial support through our incentive program. While green power may not be going to the individual contributor’s home, renewable energy projects add their electrons to North Carolina’s power supply for the benefit of all North Carolinians. Carbon offset projects provide a cleaner atmosphere for surrounding areas.
If you elect to contribute to NC GreenPower, you will be charged $4 per 100 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy produced from green resources. Each $4 contribution is split evenly with $2 purchasing 50 kWh of green power and $2 supporting the installation of solar PV demonstration projects at North Carolina K-12 schools.

About NC GreenPower
Headquartered in Raleigh, North Carolina, NC GreenPower is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit improving our state’s environment by supporting renewable energy, carbon offset projects and providing grants for solar installations at K-12 schools. NC GreenPower was formed and is administered by Advanced Energy, a nonprofit that focuses on energy efficiency for residential, commercial and industrial markets, motors and drives and electric transportation.
NC GreenPower is supported entirely by voluntary contributions from citizens and businesses across the state. In the past, the organization has applied for grants to help cover administration and marketing expenses but now depends primarily on donations to support projects.
Contributions to renewable energy and carbon offsets are given by individuals and businesses either directly to NCGreenPower, or through their utility. The utilities help with marketing the program to consumers, billing and collecting donations, and they pass contributions in their entirety to NC GreenPower.
