Empowering Our Community

NRLP is dedicated to supporting and helping power a cleaner, brighter future for our communities through university and community partnerships, employee engagement and sustainability efforts.

NRLP is actively engaged with several sustainability initiatives that benefit both our customers and our community.

Customers can save both energy and money by participating in the prepaid service program, picking up one of our energy conservation kits and making the switch to LED lighting.

Our Green Power Program allows customers to offset the use of carbon-based energy by purchasing blocks of clean, renewable hydroelectric energy. Blocks purchased replace carbon-based sources of energy, lowering the carbon footprint of NRLP customers and the Western North Carolina region.

Customers and community members can also help keep the lights turned on for their neighbors throughout the High Country by participating the the Good Neighbor Round Up Program. This small contibution effort helps elderly residents, struggling families and those with medical bills and other financial stresses maintain their basic electric service.

Sustainability Initiatives

From programs that save customers money and energy to our electric vehicle charging station and Green Power Program, NRLP is engaged in a variety of sustainability initiative across the App State campus and the Boone community.
