Gifts of EVERSOURCE
Net Metering Credits from Solar Users
To Benefit the Amherst Survival Center
Thank you for considering a gift of net metering credits to the Amherst Survival Center. Electricity maintains cold storage for our food, heats and cools our facility, runs our dishwasher and computers, and lets participants charge their phones, wash clothes and take hot showers.
With the support of generous donors, the Amherst Survival Center installed solar panels in 2018. These panels are projected to meet approximately 25% of the Center’s electricity needs. We have received donations of net metering credits from Amherst Survival Center supporters since May 2015. Donations of additional net metering credits will assist us in reaching our goal of becoming 100% solar in the future.
As the “Host Customer”, please follow these instructions to donate your credits.
Donors must submit a Schedule Z or net metering application to EVERSOURCE:
A copy of the Schedule Z form may be found here. The Schedule Z can be changed every six months.
A sample of a completed Schedule Z can be found here.
Donors indicate what percentage (1-100%) of their future net metering credits will go to the Amherst Survival Center. As excess energy is produced by your solar energy system, we’ll see an adjustment on our bill showing that credits have been applied. (Unfortunately, existing credits cannot be transferred to the Center’s account. Only future credits may be donated as noted on the Schedule Z.)
Please contact our Finance Manager, Kara Schnell, at 549-3968 ext 105
(or by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org) to let us know that you plan to submit a Schedule Z to EVERSOURCE. Kara will provide you with the Center’s EVERSOURCE account number and service address, information needed for the Schedule Z. This also allows the Center to track your donation and ensure its receipt.
Share your donation with us:
If you would like a tax receipt for your donations, donors will need to share with us the credit amounts that appear on your monthly electric bills. Sharing this information also helps to confirm that your records match what we see on our statements and lets us acknowledge and confirm receipt of your gift.
