Donate to the North Texas Renewable Energy Group
The goal of the North Texas Renewable Energy Group is to promote public education in solar energy and energy efficiency. We hold monthly meetings and participate in a variety of activities and events throughout the year. Membership in NTREG is voluntary, reasonably priced, and helps offset our expenses as we continue to expand our program of public education. Memberships are valid for one calendar year beginning on the date you join.
The North Texas Renewable Energy Group is the North Texas Chapter of the Texas Solar Energy Society. We are recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our Federal Tax identification number is 74-1962704.

|Donate to NTREG|
|NTREG is totally self-funded. All of our expenses are paid by membership dues, sponsorships, and donations by members and friends .. and if necessary .. out of our own pockets.|
We don't focus exclusively on solar energy education. Since 2001, NTREG members have provided power for: first-responders after Hurricane Katrina; Plano Methodist Hospital Cancer Research Center fund raisers; Habitat for Humanity; amateur ("ham") radio operators during simulated and real emergencies; and marathons for numerous charities .. to name but a few of the countless events and activities we've supported over the years!
Your donation in any amount is gratefully accepted and may be made at any time, as well as more than once during the year. As an IRS 501(c)(3) non-profit, donations to us may be tax-deductable. (Check with your tax specialist.)

NTREG uses IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer www.ntreg.org, and for statistical metrics used to track website visitor traffic. Only our webmaster has access to IP information. IP addresses do not identify you personally, but instead show how many visitors used the various features on our website. ("IP" addresses are "Internet Protocol" addresses - those funny number-looking things such as "123.45.678.9" you sometimes see as part of a website address, and elsewhere. It's like a disposable phone number that tells the Internet computers where to send information.)

How Your Information May Be Used
First and foremost, your information stays with us. We do not sell, rent, share, or release any of your personal information to anyone at any time. Period. We use your personal information to provide you with membership expiration and renewal reminders; to send e-mail messages; to answer your requests; and to process your membership and donation applications. To reduce costs (and save trees!), we strive not to use standard mail. If you participate in our Yahoo Conversation Group, you select your own settings as to what mail you receive, and how often. You may choose to opt out of the Yahoo Group at any time, which will stop all Yahoo Group communications from NTREG, but may not stop membership-related communication from us. Participation in our Yahoo Group does not convey or imply membership in NTREG, TXSES, or ASES.
NTREG does not provide, sell, rent, share, or make available e-mail addresses to anyone outside our organization.
