Energy Classroom

Visit Energy Classroom (external link) anytime to learn more about how power is made, energy conservation, power and wildlife, and careers in energy. Also take a virtual power plant tour.

Classroom teachers throughout our service areas helped us develop this site. And while it follows the 3rd to 5th grade science learning standards, its videos on energy topics, interactive games and puzzles, and interesting facts about energy, can make learning about energy fun for everyone.

e-SMARTkids

We recognize that teachers play a critical role in helping students learn to use energy safely. The e-SMARTkids (external link) website provides kids, teachers, and parents with resources to learn about electricity and natural gas, and how to use them safely. There are curriculum-based games and videos for kids, lesson plans, and safety book order forms for teachers and important safety information for parents.

We target 3rd-6th grade elementary educators and students in schools in our service territories, offering printed material and online information to help teach and learn about staying safe around electricity and natural gas. The material also addresses national science learning standards for this age group.

Energy Saving Tip

Energy-efficient appliances and light bulbs may cost a bit more up front, but they can save big money over the life of the product. Plus, some energy-efficient equipment may be eligible for rebates to offset the initial cost.

Break Ground, Not the Law

Always call 811 before digging in your yard to avoid hitting buried gas or electric lines. Not only is it the safe thing to do, but it's the law.
