Energy Education and Outreach

The overarching goal of education and outreach activities is to inform and encourage individuals, families, schools and communities to take proactive measures to address energy consumption and reduce their carbon footprints. Through energy efficiency and energy conservation presentations, workshops, trainings, meetings and events, Energy Corps members educate individuals, youth and community groups about saving energy and money in their homes and schools. Many energy savings strategies are available and can be easily implemented at little or no cost by individuals who possess accurate and up-to-date knowledge and information.
