SECU Renews Commitment to N.C. Green Energy Program
RALEIGH, N.C. (12/27/13)--State Employees' CU (SECU), Raleigh, N.C., will provide North Carolina residents with more than 7.2 million hours of renewable energy through a partnership with the nonprofit cooperative NC GreenPower.
 
In the next four years, SECU, through its charitable arm, the SECU Foundation, will provide funding for one kilowatt hour of renewable energy production annually for each of the NC GreenPower's 1.8 million members.
 
"As proactive stewards of our land and resources, SECU members are demonstrating their commitment toward building a sustainable energy future for our state and citizens of North Carolina," said McKinley Wooten, SECU Foundation board chair. "Creating renewable electricity from sources that are naturally replenished and in abundance is 'the right thing to do' for our environment and for North Carolinians."
 
The SECU Foundation began supporting NC GreenPower's renewable energy program in 2007.  The production of clean electricity through green sources such as solar energy, wind power, small-scale hydro-power and biomass energy from areas across North Carolina helps preserve the state's environment, said the foundation.
 
Through investments such as SECU Foundation's, NC GreenPower's program includes more than 2,200 registered solar photovoltaic installations, about 35 wind turbines, nearly 90 hydroelectric facilities and close to 30 landfill energy projects.
