Freshmen at Marin School of Environmental Leadership at Terra Linda High School spent the past semester partnering with Marin Clean Energy to spread information about renewable energy. The student group has also spent time researching various types of sustainable energy available while working to educate the community about the impacts these solutions can have on the environment.
“There are many different kinds of renewable energy that go beyond just solar panels. The best way to switch our communities to more renewable sources is to use a variety of kinds of energy. We have all of the science and technology available to do it — it’s just a matter of taking the initiative and getting it done,” said Jessamyn da Cunha, MarinSEL student.
Marin Clean Energy is a not-for-profit public agency that offers renewable power at stable rates, significantly reducing energy-related greenhouse emissions and reinvesting millions of dollars in local energy programs, according to MarinSEL. MCE provides electricity service and cutting-edge energy programs to more than 1 million residents and businesses in 37 member communities across four Bay Area counties: Contra Costa, Marin, Napa and Solano.
