Local tech students attend Clean Trades Summit
Trade-school students at Norwich Technical High School and Ella T. Grasso Southeastern Technical High School in Groton participated in the first-ever Connecticut Clean Trades Summit at Central Connecticut State University last month.
Students from five schools statewide presented findings and recommendations from a year-long investigation of their school's energy usage and sustainability practices. The schools will receive grants ranging from $2,500 to $5,000 for students to implement their energy-saving proposals during the next school year.
The program was funded and supported by Energize Connecticut, in partnership with Connecticut Light & Power, the United Illuminating Company and the Connecticut Technical High School System.
