NEW HAMPSHIRE SMALL BUSINESS ENERGY EFFICIENCY INITIATIVE
June 4,1998 - Governor's Office of Energy and Community Services energy program manager Robin Read (right) and Bill Gabler of the New Hampshire Electric Cooperative presented awards June 4 to 16 Moultonborough Academy students who conducted energy audits of several small Moultonborough businesses as part of the first project of the New Hampshire Small Business Energy Efficiency Initiative. At the awards ceremony the students reported on how each business could save on energy costs and help improve the environment by implementing energy saving measures.
Moultonborough Academy students make presentations to an audience of parents, school board members, and representatives of businesses participating in the New Hampshire Small Business Energy Efficiency Initiative at the June 4 ceremony at the Loon Center in Moultonborough. Most of the students had previously taken the Savings Through Energy Management course (STEM) offered by Wilson Educational Services during which they conducted an energy audit of their school. The Initiative is the first time in the country STEM-trained students have used their training to help local businesses lower energy costs. The innovative school-to-work Initiative was a joint project of the New Hampshire Governor's Office of Energy and Community Services, The Audubon Society of New Hampshire, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the New Hampshire Electric Cooperative, and the Northeast-Midwest Institute. Initiative sponsors are encouraging the participation of other New Hampshire schools.
