      Community Education Energy Efficiency Program (CEEP)

    The Community Education Efficiency Program for Duquesne Light will prepare middle and high school students to become energy efficiency auditors. The objective is to build the community capacity while developing a future workforce of auditors. Initially these students will work to perform audits at their own school facilities, with potential to later fan out to perform audits in the communities for income qualified residents and small businesses. As a result of the students' school audit, a report and a school conservation action plan will be developed and presented to the School Leaders. Implementation of the action plan will result in rebates paid from Duquesne Light to the schools. To promote enthusiasm and enhance the students' experience, the program will be built around an inter-school completion with prizes awarded to schools for energy reduction and content of their action plans. All participating students will receive a Certificate of Energy Auditing presented by Duquesne Light Company.

    Recruitment will occur through school districts with lead teachers from those districts to participate and lead the training efforts. The training will be consistent with industry standards for commercial building auditing and the PA high school education standards.
