Additional Information

Nebraskans for Solar (NFS) is incorporated as a public interest, nonprofit organization. Our mission is to provide solar energy installations to low-income residents and nonprofit organizations in Nebraska and to develop a Solar Schools Program in our state. We encourage community-based and other cooperative solar projects throughout the state.

Our objectives are to:

  • raise funds for solar installations for low-income households
  • raise funds to develop Solar Schools
  • lower energy costs for low-income homeowners, schools, and other nonprofits
  • support local economies through green jobs training and development
  • educate the general public and school-age children about solar energy and how it benefits homeowners, businesses, nonprofits, the environment, and our communities
  • help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other forms of air pollution

Low-income families spend more of their income on energy than everyone else, 25 to 30% on average. Providing them the means to generate their own clean, renewable  energy is a powerful tool for community economic development and poverty mitigation. A Solar Schools Program in our state will provide school age children and the general public with much-needed educational opportunities. Currently, less than 1/2% of energy generated in Nebraska comes from the sun, even though our state’s potential is great.
