Power Up Grant

Power Up has helped transform small change into big change throughout the GVEC service area.  This charitable program is funded through the generosity of participating members who round up their electric bills each month and donate the extra pennies to Power Up.

Eighty percent of available Power Up funds are awarded as grants and distributed biannually to nonprofit groups engaged in community improvement projects benefitting GVEC members.
