SRP opens applications for annual solar giveaway for nonprofits
PHOENIX– The Phoenix area’s largest electricity provider is inviting qualifying local nonprofits to apply until July 18 for the chance to receive a free solar covered parking structure.
Through the Solar for Nonprofits program, SRP has awarded 52 solar system installations over the past 14 years, officials said in a press release Thursday.
SRP founded the program in hopes of expanding renewable energy usage in the Valley, and the energy company also hopes to support community organizations through reducing their energy costs through renewable methods.
“Our local nonprofits provide so many essential services to our communities,” Kathleen Munroe, SRP manager of Distributed Energy Programs, said in the release.
“SRP’s Solar for Nonprofits program is possible through the contributions of SRP’s customers. These contributions not only increase the amount of renewable energy on our system, but also support nonprofit agencies by allowing them direct more resources to those they serve.”
SRP will announce and notify the winner by Sept. 3, and the company will receive a free solar energy parking structure and installation.
The prize additionally includes two years of free solar system maintenance from SRP.
