The program called Blue Sky Renewable Energy is powered by customers who match their energy use to support renewable energy. Blue Sky participants have so far helped provide grants for renewable power projects to 110 organizations across Oregon.
One of its most recent was a solar panel installation at the Boys and Girls Club of the Rogue Valley.
“So we’re really excited to be able to use this project as an educational tool as well for our club members and who knows what that will spark in our next generation,” said Jessica King with the Boys and Girls Club.
The organization says having these solar panels will save $1,000 a month. That money will be put back into the organization to help fund more of its programs.
Pacific Power says organizations can apply for the grant through the Blue Sky Renewable Energy website.
