E2 Energy to EducateSM
Social responsibility is one of Constellation's core foundational values. We believe that providing quality educational opportunities and career development are among the most important tools to help communities succeed in the long term. As part of our commitment to education, E2: Energy to Educate Grants support projects that are team oriented, learning focused, hands-on demonstration projects with specific results. E2 Energy to Educate projects enhance student understanding of the science and technology needed to address energy issues, and reach and inspire students to think differently about energy.

"The E2 grant program helps prepare students to address one of their generation's greatest challenges - making the transition to a more secure, efficient and low-emissions energy system to power both our buildings and our vehicles. Through these projects, students will explore innovative ways to promote this transition, while learning math and science skills that will help them compete in the global marketplace."
