K-12 Education Programs

Empower households with an efficiency education program the whole family can enjoy

Conservation's New Classroom

Our interactive, hands-on efficiency education programs are the perfect way to engage your residential customers of all ages. Conservation education programs can be crafted for students from elementary school through high school—either in the classroom or online—to teach valuable energy- and water-conservation skills. This creates a dual benefit: children come home and teach their parents the lessons they’ve learned, and your next generation of customers is able to grow with valuable conservation knowledge.

Efficiency Education With Kits

When you pair an education program with a utility-branded take-home kit filled with energy- and water-saving products, we’re able to track verifiable savings—and your customers will be excited about receiving free products. 

How Efficiency Education Programs Work

Our experts will design a customized program that meets your savings goals and your budget. Personalize your program with unique products, your utility’s custom branding, digital or hard-copy formats, region-specific educational content and more. We guarantee your program will be unlike anything else offered today.
