Northeast CERT

Northeast CERT members believe that clean energy will use local resources, invigorate local economies, and improve the environment. In 2005 the team adopted an ambitious project goal: to complete demonstration projects at every school/community in the region. Since that time the team steadily pursued this goal linking schools and communities to the technical resources they need to implement their clean energy ideas. http://www.cleanenergyresourceteams.org/regions/northeast
