Environment Grant Guidelines

We support organizations that protect and enhance the natural environment.

The communities we serve count on us to produce energy responsibly and to conserve natural resources. We do all we can in our operations to meet these expectations, and the Xcel Energy Foundation supports the following projects to increase our positive impact in the natural environment:

  • Programs or projects that provide hands-on environmental education experiences and curricula that foster an ethic of stewardship and conservation
  • Habitat and park partnership efforts between nonprofit entities and Xcel Energy that preserve, restore, conserve and improve wildlife habitat, open lands, wet lands, parks, trail systems or recreational areas
  • Natural resource conservation projects that help protect natural resources, or build awareness for natural resource conservation, including interactive exhibits and displays at museums and other public facilities, with an emphasis on water conservation

Energy Saving Tip

Create your own shade by planting a tree in a strategic location in your yard to block sunlight from pouring into your windows. It doesn't get much more green than a tree!

Break Ground, Not the Law

Always call 811 before digging in your yard to avoid hitting buried gas or electric lines. Not only is it the safe thing to do, but it's the law.
