future homes.

Future homes powered

$200,000 can purchase at least 5 million kilowatt hours of wind power, or enough to power over 700 homes for a year.

We've powered nearly
350 homes!

Help us power even more... Donate now!

Our Goal: $200k

for wind power.

Each $40 contribution will be spent on 1 megawatt hour (MWH) of wind power within 10 years. That’s enough to power the average household for nearly 2 months!

Your contribution helps ensure that People’s Power & Light can commit to funding more wind turbines for years to come. Read more about New England Wind Fund.

Why New England Wind Fund?

How the Fund shifts the power grid

Since 2002, contributors have made tax-deductible donations to the Fund. We spend at least $100,000 from the Fund each year. This means that, roughly, we are able to support 2.5 million kilowatt hours of wind power every year – the equivalent of what it takes to power 357 homes.

How does the Fund differ from People’s Power & Light’s other green power programs?

New England Wind and New England GreenStart are designed to support local renewable energy development. If you're a member, we buy renewable energy for each and every kilowatt hour you use, spending your matching contributions immediately on renewable energy certificates. In order to make the biggest impact for developers, however, we make long-term commitments to wind projects to buy those certificates not only now, but in the future.

Unlike with New England Wind and New England GreenStart, the funds in New England Wind Fund can be held for a rainy day, ensuring that we can honor these vital financial commitments in the future, even if membership in the other programs declines. New England Wind Fund creates an enormous amount of helpful financial leverage for People's Power & Light.

Whether you're a member or not, making a contribution to the Fund is another great thing you can do for wind.
