AEP Renewables Lends a Hand to Nonprofits in Nebraska
AEP Renewables, a subsidiary of American Electric Power, gifted a total of $10,000 to three nonprofits in Nebraska to fund their efforts to serve those in need during the pandemic.
Hope Harbor and Healing Hearts and Families both received $2,500, and the Custer County Foundation received $5,000. The nonprofits serve communities near AEP Renewables’ Prairie Hills Wind project in Custer County, Neb. The project, which is currently under development, will produce 208 megawatts of clean renewable energy.
“As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact communities, we’re proud to lend a hand to local nonprofits as they work diligently to serve those struggling, and we thank them for their efforts to support our neighbors in need during this difficult time,” said Greg Hall, president of AEP Renewables.
In April, AEP Renewables, with the assistance of the American Electric Power Foundation, also provided six $10,000 grants to nonprofits serving communities where AEP Renewables has other wind projects. In total, the AEP Foundation has donated nearly $3 million in response to the pandemic to help support nonprofit organizations serving the communities where AEP operates.
