MAINE PUBLIC SERVICE COMPANY–NEED PROGRAMS

MEEP is a nonprofit public/private partnership begun in 1985 with the goal of enhancing the efforts of those involved in energy education throughout the state. MEEP believes its activities–linking energy, economy, and environment–will help develop energy literacy in the decision-makers of tomorrow. MEEP coordinates the Maine Junior Solar Sprint and Green Schools program for interested school districts. MEEP also maintains a library of curriculum materials and videos for school loan.

Maine Public Service Company offers NEED workshops and materials to schools and sponsors the NEED Youth Awards Program for Energy Achievement for schools in their region. 

Sponsors: Maine Public Service Company; Maine Department of Economic and Community Development; Maine Department of Environmental Protection; Central Maine Power Company, and Maine Public Service Company.
