MAEOE administers the Maryland Green School program, and all schools are certified through MAEOE. Schools interested in receiving the award complete an application that documents the school's program and activities during a two-year period. A panel reviews the applications and an award celebration is held in the spring.
greeNEWit’s involvement comes as a result of providing energy education free in public schools in Maryland. The greeNEWit presentation at the 2013 Annual Conference will feature information on the OUR (Ownership, Understanding and Responsibility)
Participants who attend greeNEWit’s poster board session at the conference will gain an understanding of energy efficiency and how it pays back through energy savings, learn how to use utility incentives to save energy through energy efficiency and determine innovative ways your school can become green certified.
greeNEWit helps homeowners and businesses adopt best practices to cut costs and achieve energy savings. To learn more about how to get your school involved, email OURschools@greenewit.com. For the latest energy saving tips, call the office at 866.994.7639.
