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:

You know how to run your business and you have a firm understanding of what your customers and clients need. And if you’re planning for small business success, you probably appreciate that success requires a strong business plan.
Smart homes give homeowners control over everything from energy use to home security, but transitioning to an entirely automated home can be a little overwhelming. If you don’t already have a smart-home hub, smart plugs might be the perfect compromise.
From lighting up your home to transforming your front yard, decorative lights are a popular way to brighten any home during the holidays. While traditional string lights and decorative lights are a staple in many homes, they can use significant amounts of energy.
Knowing how to maintain your ideal home humidity is important for both your health and your living space. Too much humidity in your house can result in mold, wood rot and aggravated allergy and asthma symptoms.
