Purchase Carbon Offsets for your Event

Organizing a big event, like a wedding or business conference? Make it eco-friendly with energy offsets! It’s quick and easy to reduce or neutralize the negative impact your event has on the environment when you purchase energy offsets generated by EPB Solar Share panels. Use the following calculator to see how many offsets you’ll need to counteract all or a portion of your event’s carbon emissions. 

When you purchase energy offsets for your event, you’ll receive a digital certificate and authorized use of the solar share logo to use on your invitations, signage and website.
