Energy4Me Summer Institute
The Energy for ME Summer Institute is a five day energy program held at the Schoodic Education and Research Center in Winter Harbor. Pemetic and nine other schools in Maine have been attending the institute for the past two years, learning how to better understand the energy usage in their communities, homes, and schools, and also learning how to develop effective ways to increase energy efficiency. Participants also learn how to make their school more energy efficient in different areas by taking Energy Break-out Classes. These classes include transportation, lighting, communications and public relations, renewables, heating and cooling, and appliances. Over the course of the camp, students also develop leadership skills, helping them to lead their schools and communities in energy projects during the school year.
