Clean Energy Climate Solutions Program – This project is a two-year initiative aimed at testing, evaluating, and adapting educational materials that will teach Connecticut residents about clean energy as an important solution to climate change.

Learning for Clean Energy Innovation Program – This program is a test pilot program that will ultimately offer teacher training and classroom activities focused on solar energy education. The solar energy lessons are aligned with the Connecticut Core Science Curriculum Framework and will serve as alternative lessons for the Energy Transformations module of the 9th grade standards.

Connecticut Science Center – The Connecticut Clean Energy Fund (CCEF) and the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund (CEEF) are investing in a $2 million partnership to showcase the science of clean energy generation and energy conservation in the new Connecticut Science Center that will be opened in Hartford in 2008.

CT Clean Energy Trail – The Connecticut Clean Energy Trail is designed to help residents learn more about clean energy through examples of state businesses that have adopted this technology. See photos of the installations and view live energy production data online.

CTCleanEnergyOptions Program – If you're a customer of The Connecticut Light & Power Company or The United Illuminating Company, now you have the power to choose clean energy. Through the CTCleanEnergyOptions program, your energy dollars pay for electricity production from cleaner sources such as wind and small, low-impact hydro power.
