The above photo shows one of 4 solar hot water systems installed on Habitat for Humanity homes that were the result of a previous successful fundraising. Imagine the home with a 4-kilowatt PV system (12 solar panels), which we now seek to install on similar-size homes in partnership with nonprofits like Habitat for Humanity, through contributions to our new initiative: Green Watts for Good.

Nebraskans for Solar Is Now Launching Green Watts for Good!

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 fund at Metro Federal 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, will install a 4-kilowatt PV system as a demonstration home for our partnering nonprofit and our community.

Ways You Can Get Involved in Green Watts for Good:

• Learn more about Green Watts for Good at all our community events, on our website and Facebook page, and through our newsletters, and help spread the word about this new initiative!
• Join us for a post-installation party at the solar-powered demonstration home! All Green Watts for Good contributors will receive an invitation. Refreshments will be served, and you will have your choice of a "thank you" gift compliments of Nebraskans for Solar.

Thank you from all of us at Nebraskans for Solar!

"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!"
