Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) and the Alliance to Save Energy said they have announced the winning schools in Maryland´s PowerSavers Challenge, a competition aimed at inspiring students to educate family and friends about the benefits of energy efficiency.
For the challenge, students learned how to use energy diagnostic tools, studied how buildings work as systems, calculated energy savings and put together an outreach campaign. The Alliance to Save Energy gave each participating school an energy audit calculator and a watt meter. Lockheed Martin volunteers were also available to offer assistance.
