Albany, NY (PRWEB) February 23, 2012
SmartWatt Energy, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has named St. Regis Falls, NY High School’s green team, the Sustainable Saints, as the winner of their Adirondack Youth Climate Summit Energy-Efficiency Competition. St. Regis Falls High School was one of thirty schools that participated in the 2011 Adirondack Youth Climate Summit, hosted by the Wild Center, in Tupper Lake, NY.
At the Summit, SmartWatt Energy teams distributed Energy-Efficiency Kits to the student-led green teams in attendance. The Kits, co-sponsored by SmartWatt Energy and National Grid, featured energy-efficient compact fluorescent (CFL) light bulbs and information about incentives available to National Grid small business customers who make energy-efficient upgrades. The students were encouraged to take the kits back to businesses in their community to spread the word about the importance of energy-efficiency and incentives available to them. The students were asked to document their efforts with photos or video.
SmartWatt Energy and National Grid chose the St. Regis Falls’ Sustainable Saints’ video as the winner of this competition and Saranac Lake, NY High School’s Green Storm Environmental Club’s video as the runner-up. As a prize, the two teams will be featured in a poster series that SmartWatt Energy and National Grid will be distributing, beginning on Earth Day, to schools and small businesses throughout Northern New York. The poster will detail the initiatives that both groups have taken towards increasing environmental awareness and sustainability in their school and community.
