History of GreenPower
Since its inception in 2000, GreenPower has been the outreach program for the Desert Research Institute. Funded by the generosity of customers who voluntarily add a few dollars each month to their NV Energy electric bill, 100% of the tax-deductible donations support renewable energy education for Nevada's students. These donations provide numerous resources for GreenPower schools, such as professional development for teachers, educational materials for Green Boxes, and tools for classroom instruction. The program is focused on educating students across the entire state of Nevada. With GreenPower schools in 9 of Nevada's 17 counties, and more schools being added each month, the benefits of GreenPower are available to any school in the state.
