Energy Efficiency/Conservation Education

ACEE and GreenLearning Canada's new joint venture - we're creating a new hands-on energy efficiency education program using new circuit meter technology that ‘makes energy visible.’  Students increase their energy and environmental literacy, learn experientially, take environmental action, reduce greenhouse gases, and help schools reduce their utility bill and carbon levy payments! Check out a CTV News story about the program. In 2017/18, we will be rolling out Phase One with a select number of schools in Alberta.
