Currently on 23 universities and employing over 100 interns each year, PowerSave Campus empowers college students to be tomorrow's energy efficiency leaders.
PowerSave Campus is a student-driven energy efficiency education program that promotes careers in the field, generates actual energy savings, increases awareness of the importance of energy efficiency, and encourages academic infusion of sustainability concepts.
Projects range from energy audits and assessments, residential and laboratory energy competitions, intern-led and faculty sponsored academic courses, green career fairs, and energy efficiency technology retrofits.
PowerSave Campus interns work closely with faculty, staff, administrators and other students to engage them in their projects, spearheading educational campaigns that involve the entire campus community.
More than four-fifths of the college student interns who participate in the Alliance's PowerSave Campus program go on to get jobs that support sustainability. In fact, 83% of PowerSave Campus graduates currently hold a "green job," defined as work that contributes substantially to preserving or restoring environmental quality. Furthermore, 98% of PowerSave Campus alumni continue to support sustainability after graduating from the program.
