GPC Partnership Documents

You will need Adobe Reader to view some of the files on this page. See EPA's PDF page to learn more.


GPC Challenge Fact SheetThe GPC Challenge Fact Sheet (PDF) (2 pp, 811K) provides an overview of GPP's year-long Green Power Community Challenge. Review the fact sheet to learn more about the Challenge, including who can participate, how the Challenge works, and what will happen during the Challenge.


Green Power Communities Brochure The Green Power Communities Brochure (PDF) (4 pp, 2.5 MB) provides basic information about GPP's Green Power Communities (GPCs). The brochure includes information about how to become a GPC, the benefits of green power purchasing, and examples of how current GPCs are using green power to fight climate change and meet environmental and sustainability goals.


Green Power Communities Agreement The GPC Partnership Agreement (XLS) (463K) is the form that a community's authorized official must complete and email to EPA to join the Partnership. Community Partners need to provide contact information as well as information on community-wide electricity use and collective voluntary green power use. Please note that the municipal government must join the Partnership prior to the community joining as a GPC. The municipal government must meet all requirements outlined in the standard Partnership Agreement (PDF) (2 pp, 133K) and submit the Agreement to EPA. Also, please note that in response to the automated message that appears upon opening the Partnership Agreement, you will need to enable macros (the macro contained in the file is safe and has been third-party verified).


Community Yearly Report document The Green Power Community Yearly Report (XLS) (138K) is a form that Green Power Communities can use to update their community-wide green power usage information. Communities will receive a Green Power Community Yearly Report from their assigned account manager on the anniversary of their Partnership or the anniversary date of their last purchase data update, whichever is most recent. The report will include the community-wide green power use information on record—Communities need only confirm or update the information. Please note, in response to the automated message that appears upon opening the Yearly Report, you will need to enable macros (the macro contained in the file is safe and has been third-party verified).


EPA Green Power Community Road Signs: Use & Reproduction Guidelines The EPA Green Power Community Road Signs: Use & Reproduction Guidelines (PDF) (2 pp, 303K) provides guidance on the correct use and display of EPA Green Power Community road signs. This document also includes sign reproduction guidelines, should a community wish to reproduce signs for additional display within the boundaries of the municipality.
