Educational Resources

Efficiency Vermont helps to support the Vermont Energy Education Program (VEEP). VEEP’s mission is to, “Build a deep understanding of energy through education, encouraging choices that result in sustainability in our communities, economy and environment.” VEEP has significantly expanded their at home learning tools for Kindergarten students through high school seniors. We encourage teachers and parents to use these resources, or share with others who may benefit from the toolkit! There are great resources there to keep kids’ minds working and energized.
