Caring is a year-round event

Posted on Sep 01 2020 in Noble REMC

Sooner than we think, we’ll be seeing the trees change color and watch as the leaves fall, but the need for environmental protection and care doesn’t stop with the end of summer.

That’s why Noble REMC provides a way to give back that spans the entire year – our EnviroWatts program.

Participation in the program is a two-fold benefit. Members donate 1 cent per kilowatt-hour for the first 500 kWh their home generates, totaling no more than $5 each month. This money is then given back to the local community and its nonprofit organizations who are completing eco-friendly projects aimed at improving the natural landscape.

On top of that, those kilowatt-hours are then guaranteed to be generated from renewable energy sources, such as solar, wind and landfill gas.

This year, our EnviroWatts funding is being used by three organizations to positively impact a wide span of our service territory, and in turn, the community at large.

DeKalb County Central United Schools, the Town of Churubusco and Oak Farm Montessori School each received $1,500 to promote its recycling program, plant greenery in a local rain garden and construct a permanent composting site, respectively.

If you’re a participating member in our EnviroWatts program, thank you for your contribution to your community and its future!
