Just a little more than two days left! Constellation is accepting proposals through Oct. 1 for the 2011 E2 Energy to Educate Grant Awards.
E2 Energy to Educate Grants are awarded to projects that reach and inspire students to think differently about energy, and that align with at least one of three focus areas:
— the basic science and engineering needed to address energy challenges;
— new energy technologies entering the marketplace;
— and the expanding role of information technology in how we efficiently manage and use energy.
In 2010, 10 projects were awarded a total of $350,000 in communities across the country. Each team-oriented, hands-on project reaches at least 100 students. The awards have supported a variety of initiatives, ranging from a project that evaluated the viability of wind energy at local schools to one that designed and built a sustainable, net zero solar-powered house.
In addition to announcing the grant opportunity, we are donating $10 to USA Science Festival for every Twitter follower that retweets our message below promoting the program:

Whatever your energy needs, we've got a plan for you
As a small-business owner, you know that making a profit has a lot to do with how you manage expenses. And utilities make up a big part of that overhead.
As the electric grid ages in the United States, there’s a revolution underway to make the old grid “smart.” Part of that leap is the mass installation of smart electric meters in American homes.
