Alternative Energy Spring Break Service Trip Update
Thanks to everyone who donated and help make our Green Bay Spring Break so successful! With a team of about 12 people, we were able to get a LOT done! We went to 1 elementary school, 2 middle schools, and 1 high school and were able to educate and talk to 773 students about the importance of energy conservation!
While we were there teaching kids, we were also out on the turf, talking to homeowners and renters about ways that they can save energy in their homes thanks to our team of hardworking Energy Assessors! We were able to complete 106 energy assessments in less than 5 days!
We definitely feel like we made a difference in Green Bay and got kids talking about the importance of energy and where it comes from, and look forward to doing more good work in Milwaukee!
Energy Service Corps News
WISPIRG's Energy Service Corps is working to help people save energy, save the environment, and save money all at the same time. We all use energy, but the problem is that here in Wisconsin, over 85% of our energy comes from burning dirty sources like coal, gas, and oil, which spew pollution into the air, which is increasingly harmful to our health, and costs more and more each year.
One way to help solve this problem is to cut the energy we waste in our homes. If every home in the US swapped just ONE regular lightbulb for a CFL (compact fluorescent light bulb), we'd have the same effect on air pollution as taking 800,000 cars off the roads, and what's more is we'd save 600 million dollars! Through education and service projects, Energy Service Corps is working to help people tap into these energy efficiency solutions and reduce our overall energy use.
Our students at UW-Milwaukee worked this semester to educate 1,065 kids about energy conservation and talk to over 200 homeowners and renters about ways they can save energy in their homes and apartments!
Keep checking back here for more updates on our semester.
