A Place of Learning and Training for the Community

We offer a wide range of classes, interactive workshops and education programs for people of all ages.

About us

Established in 2015, The Center for Energy Education (C4EE) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and a center for renewable energy research, education, and workforce development for the eastern United States. The C4EE provides a place to raise awareness of renewable energy and its importance locally, regionally, and globally.

  • The Center for Energy Education offers solar curriculum training for teachers in public, private and charter schools in the area. The workshop is designed to integrate solar education easily into science teachers lesson plans.

  • The Center for Energy Education offers summer camps for school age children during summer months while they are out of school. They learn about renewable energy while doing fun hands on experiments and crafts. Healthy living is built into the summer camp through free meals and outdoor activities.

  • O & M Training is an educational course on solar energy in cooperation with the Center for Energy Education, NRECA and Halifax Community College. The course equips students in the operations and maintenance of utility-scale and community solar farms. Students will acquire the skills necessary to provide efficiency analysis, troubleshooting, diagnostics and maintenance of overall components of solar farms. The insight the course provides will give a good starting point to become NABCEB certified for interested individuals.

  • The Solar Farm Workshop for Public Officials provide the latest information and updates on topics related to solar farms from industry experts, academia and county officials. The featured topics for this meeting include Solar Industry Updates, State and Local Permitting, Health and Safety Impacts of Solar Technology, Legal Considerations for Landowners and Officials, and Tax Treatment and Revenue Impacts.

  • Solar Construction Classes include Wiring, Racking, Mounting, Small Tools, Measurements and OSHA 10 training.  Classes are held at C4EE and at Halifax Community College.

  • Solar 101 is an informational meeting for the community to learn about solar, renewable energy, solar projects in the area, and up coming Center for Energy Education events.

Introducing the Mobile Classroom:

The C4EE Mobile Classroom is designed to provide hands-on learning opportunities for schools, community organizations, and the general public. The classroom on wheels is equipped for workforce development programs, STEM programs, and community events. Driven by the C4EE Education and Training Manager, the vehicle travels stocked with micro-grid displays, classroom lab aid kits, and all the necessities for an educational experience about solar energy. If you or your organization is interested in having the C4EE Mobile Classroom at your school or community event, contact the C4EE office via email at contact@center4ee.org

Climate Change

“IN A STATE OF CLIMATE CHANGE” is a short environmental documentary beginning with the floods in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence. The film addresses the impacts on our citizens of such natural disasters and ponders climate change’s role in the extensive flooding seen in the Carolinas and surrounding areas.

“Energy Education is vitally important for the next generation. Come and join us at the Center now!”
Georg Veit Chairman of the Board, CEO, Geenex Solar LLC
