NV Energy’s Nonprofit Agency Grant Program to Help Nonprofits Save Energy

Apr 30, 2012

NV Energy is now accepting applications for its Nonprofit Agency Grant program. The program funds energy-efficiency retrofit projects for Nevada nonprofit agencies, helping them reduce energy costs.

Examples of effective projects include installation of efficient lighting systems, lighting controls, heating, ventilation and air conditioning system upgrades and tune-ups, or any other measure that reduces electric energy consumption.

Per the program guidelines, projects that cost $5,000 or less can be funded in full. Projects that cost between $5,000 and $10,000 require a 50 percent matching investment from the nonprofit organization.

To qualify for these grants an agency must be an NV Energy electric customer in good standing, a 501(c)(3) physically located within NV Energy’s service area, and the grant must be used to fund energy-efficiency retrofit projects.

Grant applications are rated and awarded based on electrical energy savings and on a first-come, first-served basis. The application deadline is August 15. To receive grant funds, projects much be completed by November 15.

For complete program and application guidelines visit or contact John Berg, southern Nevada grant manager at 702.402.5120 or Chad Piekarz, northern Nevada grant manager at 775.834.4417.
