We were very happy to be a recipient in 2016 of a grant from NC GreenPower to install a solar array at our school and to partner with them both in further fundraising for this solar array and in its installation. They do good work and were a pleasure to work with all along the way!
For a small nonprofit, NC GreenPower has a HUGE impact in our state! They have supported hundreds of small solar projects with the donations they receive, and their new solar schools grant program is great. There is a high school down the road from where I live that received their funding and will be getting a solar array this year. I'm super excited to see that project come to life!
NC GreenPower is full of passionate and dedicated individuals and volunteers. They really care about the work they do to support North Carolina and its environment, and their Solar Schools program is making a difference in the lives of thousands of students statewide.
NC GreenPower is a small nonprofit with a huge impact. They are passionate and dedicated about the work they do to support North Carolina and its environment. Their outreach, education and Solar Schools pilot have made a big difference in the lives of many North Carolina students and more.
I've worked with quite a few non-profits and NC GreenPower is one that stands out from the rest. From their mission of helping educate kids around renewable energy to improving our environment, they really are serving a niche that more people should support. They use donations to do all the great stuff they do in our state and are making a difference! Really great group of passionate people - everyone should send them $25 so they can do more.
NC GreenPower is the BEST! I've volunteered for and donated to many nonprofits over the decades but this group is fantastic. They care, they do the right things, they truly want to help our state, the environment and kids in schools. Tell everyone you know about NC GreenPower and have them donate $4 a month - it's the easiest and best investment you can make and you'll feel good about doing it!
Wonderful organization! I appreciate all they do to promote renewable energy in North Carolina. Their Solar Schools program is truly impactful and I'm excited to see it continue to grow - it would be so great to see solar installed at every school in the state!
I recently attended a ribbon cutting for NC GreenPower's Solar Schools program. It was exciting to see the enthusiasm and support for this program and NC GreenPower as a whole. The NC GreenPower employees are passionate and dedicated. They are truly making a positive and sustainable impact across North Carolina.
NC GreenPower is such a stellar nonprofit. Their volunteers are always well-prepared to interact with the public and they had cool SWAG.
From carbon offsets to solar schools, NC GreenPower has been helping promote a clean energy future in the Great North State for 15 years!
I've been involved with NCGreenPower since the planning and formation. It is a great concept to use private donations to enable and support renewable energy projects. Current programs to install solar at schools and partner with education modules is an excellent use of those donations. The results are outstanding and are helping students become comfortable with technology and power generation that is becoming more and more prevalent and also represents potential careers.
NC GreenPower is an amazing organization led by staff that truly cares about their mission of supporting renewable energy. There are many ways this is done, but the project of installing solar projects in schools throughout NC sets the standard. Kids are excited beyond belief to have an active solar array on their campus that they can interact with and learn about sustainable energy options. I have seen firsthand that it can galvanize a community to help these efforts and also educate them about solar power. It is an honor to be affiliated with such a genuine group of people who pour their heart and soul into their jobs and mission!
I have volunteered on the Board of NC Green Power for more than 13 years now and I can't say enough about the great staff and the excellent programs. NC GreenPower has been a big part of the change in solar generation in North Carolina, especially in the important role of education citizens about solar and other types of alternative power generation, and in helping citizens install solar on homes. There was almost no solar power generation in the state when the group began, but NC was ranked second in the nation in 2017! I'm proud to have been a part of this organization.
I have limited free time but chose NC GreenPower as the group I volunteer to help because they do great things! Not only do they support local green power projects but they're helping our schools educated our kids better. And all of this is local - they help improve our state's environment and education which matters a lot to me. I've met some of the staff and they're really passionate about making a positive impact - who couldn't appreciate that? They're a really good organization and people should volunteer or donate - even a few bucks helps!
NC Green Power does a great job educating the public regarding energy issues and new developments in renewable energy.
NC GreenPower is an awesome organization! Their Solar Schools program is especially impressive, allowing students across the state to learn about solar energy firsthand. Their community education and outreach is second to none. If there's an environmental or renewable energy focused event, chances are you'll find NCGP there - with sustainably sourced swag! Their knowledgeable staff is great at answering questions and educating the public on renewable energy. Keep up the good work, NC GreenPower!!
NC GreenPower has been a tremendous benefit to area schools! With the state's school districts already having a pretty slim budget - all things considered; it's great the NCGP is not only helping them to save money, but are setting a grand example for everyone; including local government, utilities, residents, students, administrators, etc., etc.! Keep up the fantastic work NCGP!
I have followed NC Green Power since 2003 and enjoyed reviewing their website to become more informative on renewable energy. I volunteered for the NC Green Power event at NCSU McKinnon Center location and totally enjoyed answering questions and giving demos on renewable energy to several high school’s students. This organization has made a huge impact in North Carolina for alternative energy sources.
This is a great nonprofit. I truly believe the best way to approach any oncoming shift in the way society has always functioned is through education. And, as we watch our energy mix move to increase a larger number of renewable energy resources in it, education is the best way to make our society comfortable with what this change will mean to them. Not to mention that the science of the sun never ceases to fascinate. After all, our world literally revolves around it:)
I love volunteering for NC GreenPower. It's fun to watch people learn about the great programs they offer to schools around the state and get excited to start a solar program at their local school. Maybe it's because the sun always makes people happy, but getting to educate people about solar power projects - and other renewable energy initiatives that NC GreenPower supports in NC - is one of the most rewarding ways I get to spend my extra time.
Volunteering at NC Greenpower has been a very rewarding experience for me. Julia and Katie have been extremely supportive, with every event handled seamlessly. NCGP’s key messages are clear and consistent, and resonate very well with the audience, especially youth. I would highly recommend this nonprofit to others seeking an impactful volunteer experience geared to cultivating a solid and enduring sustainability ethic, particularly in young people.
As a board member, I am proud to play a part in helping drive the mission of NC GreenPower, especially it's focus on renewable energy in schools. As a mother of two, I know the importance of teaching our children about our options for a sustainable future and NC GreenPower provides a hands-on way for children (and their parents) to learn more about the benefits of renewable energy. The staff, volunteers and board are passionately committed to finding innovative solutions that will reduce our carbon footprint and promote a more sustainable future.
I've interacted with NC GreenPower in a variety of ways over the years and have always been impressed with their mission and passion. After being a long term donor, I was pleased to be asked to join the board several years ago and had an opportunity to learn more about their operations and impact. Last week it all came together for me as I was able to attend a ribbon cutting of a new solar installation at a local school that NC GreenPower funded. As an educator myself, it was wonderful to see how NC GreenPower's model ties together environmental stewardship with applied learning opportunities.
