The Green Power Co-op, a renewable energy company that was started in 2015, has already secured $1 million in financing.
Now, the co-op has announced that it will offer the opportunity to volunteer for $2,500 per month, for a total of $10,000.
In the event of a disaster, the company will offer assistance to residents affected by the storm.
“We want to provide our community with a safe and secure place to share their energy needs, so that when things get tough, our customers can rest assured that our energy company will help them get back to work,” the coop’s CEO, Boone Electric Cooperative, said in a statement.
“We want our customers to be confident that they will be able to count on our company in a disaster.”
Boone Electric is a local utility with 1,800 customers in Vermont and New Hampshire, according to the company.
The company operates an array of renewable energy sources, including solar, wind, geothermal, and biomass.
The coop has received numerous awards and grants in recent years.
Boone’s goal is to have 30 percent of its customers turn to renewable energy by 2045.
