About Project ReCharge Student Projects

As part of Project ReCharge, students utilize STEAM concepts, skills, and real-world data to develop sustainability projects aimed at reducing energy and resource use in their homes, school, and community. Students research energy and sustainability issues within their community, work alongside industry professionals, and present their findings through Public Service Announcements, Green School Certification, Energy Star Certification, Civic Engagement Projects, and Sustainability Proposals.

Student projects are shared with school administrators, parents, community members, and decision-makers, where selected projects are chosen to be implemented throughout the school year. Funding is secured by several parties, including local school districts, partners, and individual donors. We collaborate with CLEAResult and others to ensure accurate energy savings, and the rebates from NV Energy are then used to fund additional projects in the future.

Impact to Date

Project ReCharge has reached 223 teachers from 108 schools and 15 school districts, provided them with over 9,190 hours of professional learning, and engaged 65,000 students with an interactive, hands-on STEAM curriculum. This resulted in $1.29 million in savings based on 10,418+ MWh of energy savings as a direct result of student-driven sustainability projects. These savings are equivalent to removing 1,591 combustion cars from the road and powering 930 American homes for one year.
