NEED: The mission of the National Energy Education Development Project is to promote an energy conscious and educated society by creating effective networks of students, educators, business, government and community leaders to design and deliver objective, multi-sided energy education programs. NEED works with energy companies, agencies and organizations to bring balanced energy programs to the nation’s schools with a focus on strong teacher professional development, timely and balanced curriculum materials, signature program capabilities and turn-key program management.
The PG&E Solar Schools Program provides curriculum materials, hands-on kits, Bright Ideas Grants, and teacher training to schools in Northern and Central California. Visit PG&E Solar Schools
