Earth Day, held on April 22, aims to shine a light on the environment and the steps we can take to protect it. But did you know?

  • The first Earth Day was in 1970.
  • More than 1 billion people participate in Earth Day activities, making it the largest secular civic event in the world.

While we would all love to be able to do our part on Earth Day to help the environment, sometimes our schedules don’t line up. That’s why LaGrange County REMC offers a way for our members to help year-round with our EnviroWatts program. For $5 a month, you can contribute to positively impacting our local environment and community.

Members who participate in the program pay an additional one cent per kilowatt-hour (kWh) for their first 500 kWh, guaranteeing the number of kWh to be generated from environmentally friendly alternative energy sources.

That premium is then placed in a fund used to provide grants to nonprofit groups’ environmentally friendly projects in LaGrange County.

A couple of months ago, LaGrange County Soil & Water Conservation District received EnviroWatts Funding to launch the Strategic Water Quality Monitoring program for 2024.

Members who contributed to the EnviroWatts program should be proud of the project their dollars made possible. We sure are.

Sign up for EnviroWatts this Earth Day, or any day, by visiting or calling the office at 877-463-7165.
