Pathway to Green Schools
The DESEU and the Green Building United have teamed up to reduce energy costs and foster the growth of sustainability initiatives in Delaware's Schools.
Currently in its fourth year, the Energize Delaware Pathways to Green Schools program provides grants, one-on-one support, and expert resources to K-12 schools in Delaware that are committed to becoming healthier, more sustainable, and more energy efficient.
