PositiveNRG Program

The positiveNRG program strengthens communities by investing in the places where we do business. We focus on giving back to the community in three main areas:

  • Education grants and scholarships strengthen international understanding, cultural exchange, environmental education, entrepreneurial education and/or local knowledge of the independent power generation business and help to meet the educational needs of communities where we operate.
  • Environment grants fund initiatives that preserve natural resources or help to meet the environmental needs of communities where we operate.
  • Human welfare grants provide humanitarian assistance and/or disaster relief, improve public safety and help to meet the human welfare needs of communities where we operate.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • Applicants must be a non-profit/charity/501(c)(3) or governmental organization.


  • The positiveNRG program gives preference to organizations and initiatives that have a meaningful and direct impact on the community, as well as nonprofit organizations and initiatives that are supported in partnership with the community.
  • We encourage investing in initiatives that strengthen community involvement and inclusiveness.


  • In most cases, we will not contribute to religious, political, veteran and fraternal organizations, except for related programs that directly benefit the community and not the organization
  • We do not contribute to organizations that support terrorist activities or discriminate.
  • Generally, we do not support sponsorships and club activities unless there is a unique initiative that complies with the positiveNRG policy and guidelines.
