     In 2016, Infinite Energy created a $5 Giveback Program with Gwinnett County Public Schools Foundation and pledged to contribute $5 every year for each natural gas customer we have in the county. This year's grants are the result of this program and are a prime example of how Gwinnett gives back to support students and schools.
