On Nov. 14, over 1,000 Pennsylvania teachers received free sustainable energy training and teaching materials at the Sustainable Energy Education Workshop from Citizen Power, a nonprofit environmental and consumer advocacy organization. The free professional training and $170 worth of classroom resources, including photovoltaic and concentrating solar kits, wind turbines, LED light bulbs, books and DVDs, were a boost to the state, where schools suffered $860 million in budget cuts in 2011-2012.
