General Info

The Center for Energy Education (C4EE) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation and a center for renewable energy research, education, and workforce development for Halifax County and Eastern North Carolina. The C4EE provides a place to raise awareness of renewable energy and its importance locally, regionally, and globally.

Our Programs

Teaching Tomorrow's Scientists

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.

Energy Summer Camps

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

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.

Solar Education for Public Officials

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 Farm Construction

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