Education and Outreach Programs
Education and outreach play a key role with each of Silicon Valley Clean Energy’s programs. Connecting customers to their electricity usage and providing the tools necessary to empower all of us to reduce emissions benefits everyone.
The Education Fund
We are partnering with our local students to help build community engagement with climate education and action. With the Education Fund, Silicon Valley Clean Energy is providing funding to high school and community college student-led projects that support our communities’ goal of fighting climate change by reducing the use of fossil fuels.
Bike to the Future
SVCE awarded over $50,000 in scholarship awards to local students through the Bike to the Future competition. Bike to the Future is a scholarship competition run by Silicon Valley Clean Energy in which high school students design and build an electric bike (e-bike) engaging in hands-on engineering, environmental innovation, and teamwork.
$75,000 for Community Nonprofits to Expand Energy Education
Silicon Valley Clean Energy awarded $75,000 in grant funding to six local nonprofits to reach underrepresented members of our community. The non-profit grantees (Acterra, El Concilio, Interfaith Power and Light, Sound of Hope, Sunnyvale Community Services, Vietnamese Voluntary Foundation) will help reach a broader audience and create an understanding of SVCE’s mission, programs, energy bills and benefits for the community.
