Green Up | announces the 2017 Grant Recipients

Green Up grants provide funding for local renewable energy programs and projects designed to educate and inspire the next generation of energy users and leaders and clean, renewable power to the grid.

The contributions of almost 13,000 Green Up customers will allow seven deserving grant recipients to invest in solar energy in the Seattle area. These grants allow the organizations to lower their operating costs and focus on their respective missions to provide quality education, affordable housing, and community services. This year almost $1 million in grant funds will be allocated to help fund 14 projects that are expected to produce approximately one megawatt of electricity. Many thanks to the 2017 recipients for bringing more renewable energy to the region and the Green Up customers who make this possible.
