Where has the year gone? We’re starting to see the trees change color and watch as the leaves fall. But the need for environmental protection and care doesn’t stop with the change of seasons.
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 one 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 two local parks to positively impact a wide span of our service territory, and in turn, the community at large.
Albion Parks Department was granted $2,000 to assist in the creation of wetlands at Hidden Diamonds Park to foster new habitats and provide better drainage, and Churubusco Community Park was awarded $1,000 to install solar-powered light poles to lessen its carbon footprint and increase safety at the park.
If you’re a participating member in our EnviroWatts program, thank you for your contribution to your community and its future!
If you’d like to join our other members in their efforts, call our office at 800-933-7362, or visit nobleremc.com/envirowatts, fill out the available application and return it to our office alongside your bill payment or in a separate envelope to PO Box 137, Albion, IN 46701.
