By partnering with educators around the province, we’re helping grow the next generation of efficiency leaders.
1 in 2 schools across the province are part of our Green Schools program.
Each school year, our Engagement Officers are busy teaching over 20,000 students about the environmental benefits of being energy efficient.
Students, teachers and the larger school community are learning how to waste less, save energy and the planet.
Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) Bright Student Bursary
Efficiency Nova Scotia and NSCC partnered for a second year to award the Bright Student Bursary to a student enrolled in the Energy Sustainability Engineering Technology program.
These students are committed to growing their career in the energy efficiency industry after graduation.
Luke Hiebert was the recipient of the 2018 bursary. “I feel a great need to learn how to build/design affordable and sustainable homes for those in need.
I am determined to make a difference in the world of affordable and universal housing.”
We’re happy to help Luke and students like him follow their passions for energy efficiency
