Final Weeks

With the Equine Center Solar PV project completed and the final Comprehensive Campus Renewable Energy Feasibility Study reports being written, these Clean Energy Fund projects are winding down. My outreach duties have not however, and with the final weeks of the internship coming to an end I have been working on multiple press releases, an information pamphlet for the Equine Center, and reflecting on what I have learned over the past weeks and how these new skills will affect my future career.

Event Planning and Research

During the past two weeks I have given the Equine Center opening ceremony the majority of my attention. This has included meeting with Jeff Wakefield, associate director of University Communications, who brought his experienced insights to the meeting. We discussed the guest list, the potential date and time for the event, our guest speakers, what we would need, etc; everything that needs to be finalized, the actual “planning” of the event.

First Two Weeks: PV Surveying

I have learned a lot since the start of the Clean Energy Fund internship two weeks ago. The first days began with meetings so that all the interns could meet one another as well as the UVM and CHA employees that we would be working with. Clough Harbour and Associates  (CHA) is an engineering firm that UVM selected to work on the project.  After being introduced to what the internship would entail, the schedule and deliverables of the project were laid out.
