Green Watts for Good

Nebraskans for Solar Launching Green Watts for Good

Nebraskans for Solar (NFS) needs your help to raise funds to support solar initiatives in our community. Our goal is to establish a revolving account to install solar PV systems on homes in an effort to provide clean, abundant green energy. We will partner with local nonprofits, like Habitat for Humanity of Omaha and others, to not only protect our environment, but also to save families money through solar systems.

Green Watts for Good Fundraiser

  • Contributions will be deposited in Nebraskans for Solar’s Green Watts for Good Savings Account at Metro Credit Union.
  • We are raising funds for 4-kilowatt PV systems: $6,500 per system. The solar panels come with the manufacturer’s warranty to last 25 years.
  • Nebraskans for Solar board members, who include three solar professionals and four who have rooftop solar, and other volunteers will install a 4-kilowatt PV system as a demonstration home with our partnering nonprofit.

“Nebraskans for Solar is one of the premier groups working on solar energy in Nebraska. Whether they’re disseminating news and information, educating the public and holding events, or engaging in community development such as their Clarkson Park installation, Nebraskans for Solar is on the forefront of enlightening residents and brightening Omaha’s future.”

Graham Christensen, GC REVolt, LLC
“Interest in solar energy is HOT in Nebraska. This is a result of decreasing costs in solar and environmental need, but also because Nebraskans are becoming more aware of the many benefits that solar offers. Nebraskans for Solar (NFS) is a big reason why more people are aware of these benefits. Please support NFS so that they can help educate more Nebraskans about solar through their demonstration solar-powered home and their Green Watts for Good program!”
