Helena Elementary School is proud to announce that we are one of the five schools selected for the NC GreenPower 2017 Solar Schools Grant.
The NC GreenPower launched a pilot program on April 1, 2015, to provide matching grants for the installation of a solar PV array at schools, providing clean, green renewable energy in North Carolina.
Nine schools in North Carolina have now received grants for solar energy systems. The funding also provides curriculum and training to each of those schools.
Helena Elementary now has until September 29, 2017, to raise their matching funds via the NC GreenPower fundraising website, my.NCGreenPower.org. My.NCGreenPower is an online community for advocates of a cleaner, greener environment to join together for fundraising. Donations as little as $1 can be made to support our efforts.
To make a donation via check, please make payable to “NC GreenPower” and be sure to note our school in the “memo” section of the check. Mail to NC GreenPower, Attn: Jenna DeRosse, 909 Capability Drive Suite 2100, Raleigh, NC 27606
Please consider supporting our school!
With the mission of improving the quality of the environment in North Carolina, the nonprofit NC GreenPower was founded in 2003 as a statewide program. NC GreenPower helps to connect consumers with renewable energy and carbon offset providers to create positive environmental and economic impacts for our state. All projects supported by the program are located in North Carolina. In 2015, NC GreenPower launched a new pilot to support solar PV installations at K-12 schools. We need your help to continue our efforts to improve our home state and lay the groundwork for a cleaner, brighter future. Contributions to NC GreenPower are tax-deductible.
