Engaging, Inspiring, and Empowering Sustainability Leaders
Energize Schools is a project of Strategic Energy Innovations that launched in 2013 to help schools invest in energy efficiency and renewable energy projects while engaging students in energy conservation, education, and leadership.
Today, our team of professionals and educators are helping high schools across California transform education while focusing on energy and environmental literacy. Our programs are designed to make it easy and affordable for schools to reduce resource use and engage students in sustainability education and leadership.
“To me, the [Energize Schools] team is a gift, really. They planned out each lesson and coordinated the garden activities, including getting supplies. They even applied for and won a grant for the students to go on a field trip to an organic farm and education center.”
-Emilia Zelaya, Madison High Teacher, Sustainable Agriculture
