Princeton Public Library Receives $25,000 Grant from NRG

libraryThe Princeton Public Library has received a $25,000 donation from NRG Energy that will be directed to the library’s stewardship fund. The fund is an endowment that provides money for building upgrades that allow the library to operate in a more environmentally sustainable manner.

The library is seeking to reduce energy consumption and costs and to become a model of best sustainability practices for the community and other libraries. Representatives from NRG have helped provide guidance.

We are grateful to NRG for their generous gift and for their leadership in helping the library become a more sustainable institution,” said Princeton Public Library Executive Director Leslie Burger. “Our relationship with NRG has been instrumental to advancing our sustainability efforts, and we look forward to building on that relationship in the years to come.”

Our contribution and involvement as an energy partner and corporate neighbor will help the Princeton Public Library achieve even more ambitious sustainability goals, serving as a shining example for other Princeton-area businesses and homeowners to follow,” said NRG Chief Operating Officer Mauricio Gutierrez. “Just as public libraries inspire learning through books and media, we hope to inspire a local race for clean energy through our support of the community’s public library.”

Locally based NRG Energy Inc. is a Fortune 250 company that supports clean energy resources and technologies nationwide.
