NEEP Policy & Forum Teams Host Trio of Interns

We are fortunate to have three bright college interns working with us in Lexington this summer. Trevor, Lauren, and Erika are learning as much as they are contributing to our work, being exposed to an array of topics, joining external meetings and events, participating in NEEP projects and partnership groups, and generally getting a taste of the wide world of energy efficiency programs and policy across the region. Thank you interns, for sharing your time and your enthusiasm with NEEP!
