Hi everyone!! My name is Nic Planchard and I am an intern here at Carolina Energy Conservation. I'm a part of the United Nations Youth Corp with an established group in Georgetown County, called Georgetown RISE. This is an internship that allows students from Coastal Carolina University to work for local businesses ranging from Little River, SC to Georgetown, SC. For example, I am working for Carolina Energy Conservation in Myrtle Beach, SC.
Throughout the internship, we are researching and building a report that shines light onto how businesses on the coastal side of South Carolina are meeting the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and how it can be related to the city of Georgetown. Carolina Energy Conservation wants people to have clean energy that can replace non-renewables like coal, oil, natural gas, and nuclear power. This being said, the main goals that I have focused on this summer are goals 3 ( health and well being), 7 (affordable and clean energy), 11 (sustainable cities and communities), and 13 (climate action). During my time here, I have worked on social media posts, blogs, video testimonials but also on solar projects. To learn a little bit about what has happened in the past few months, check out our blog page!
