Evergreen Options Grant Program is a voluntary program that allows Tacoma Power customers to buy electricity produced from new renewable sources, like wind and solar, through renewable energy certificates (RECs).
This annual grant program helps recipients generate a portion of their own electricity from renewable sources including wind, solar, geothermal, landfill gas, wave or tidal, biomass, gas produced during the treatment of wastewater, and qualified hydropower. Recipients may also receive credit for any extra electricity their system provides back to the utility. Grant funding comes from Tacoma Power residential and business customers who participate in the Evergreen Options program.
The 2020 recipient of the Evergreen Options Grant Program is Shiloh Baptist Church!
Shiloh Baptist Church has served as an anchor institution in the Black/African American community since 1953. Shiloh’s pastor and congregation have played an important role in organizing campaigns for climate justice and the NAACP, and Shiloh Baptist Church is a critical resource to many in need. Like other culturally and historically rich urban neighborhoods in the Pacific Northwest, Hilltop’s longtime residents are fighting to preserve the fabric of resources and social bonds cultivated over decades.
The $50,000 Evergreen Options grant will enable Shiloh Baptist to construct a 19.78 kilowatt solar photovoltaic installation, in turn creating an opportunity to showcase grassroots solutions to the impacts of climate change, while investing in facilities that are the backbone of our community.
This solar array will create opportunities for education with youth and families. Because many of the church’s members are not positioned to invest in solar photovoltaics individually, this project creates an opportunity to learn about and experience solar first hand.
