Apex Clean Energy is pleased to support educators, entrepreneurs, and changemakers in the Buckingham County community. One small way we can do this is by giving back through the Riverstone Solar Community Grant program.
Our goal for the Community Grant program is to fund projects and programs that promote education, encourage conservation/environmental sustainability, and improve local public land access. Grant dollars are limited, but if you represent a group or organization that meets one of these three key funding categories (details below), we encourage you to complete the application and apply today. Applications will be considered as they are received.
A) Promoting Education
Programs that support educational institutions; the advancement of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM); and training programs for careers in the renewable energy industry fit into this category, including curriculum development, literacy, school readiness, and other initiatives that help students grow into young leaders. Vocational training institutions that help build a skilled workforce are also included here and are encouraged to apply.
B) Conservation Efforts and Environmental Sustainability in Buckingham County
These are programs that have a strong link to environmental revitalization or sustainability, empower residents to be stewards of the environment, and/or encourage partnerships to address environmental concerns and sustainability. Participating organizations must have a credible record of success in conservation.
C) Public Land Access and Improvements Within Buckingham County
Programs that help improve access to public land for all residents of Buckingham County fall into this category, including improvements for boating, fishing, hunting, hiking, bird-watching, and other recreational land use. Applications should specify a plan to improve access, including a breakdown of associated costs.
