Project Title & Description
Maine Pilot Project
The American Lung Association of Maine - "Maine Cool Communities Pilot Project" will improve energy efficiency in schools through outreach and education efforts. The goal of the project is to host an energy efficiency workshop for school districts statewide. Planning and preparation for the workshop will include: 1) interviews with key individuals in the community to identify needs and opportunities around which the business case could be developed; 2) an inventory of energy efficiency measures already undertaken by schools in the community; 3) implementation of an outreach strategy to ensure that the desired audience is at the workshop; and 4) conducting 1-2 walkthrough energy audits if it is determined that these audits could contribute effectively to the educational value of the workshop and its underlying goals and objectives.
