SRP School of Energy, Learn and Save Together

The SRP School of Energy is closed as a project this year, but Edison has benefitted from the community in energy education and conservation efforts.

At Edison we have cut our energy use, had demonstrations for each of the grade levels sharing information about energy use, worked on cutting the energy use of our technology and our 6th grade classes completed a science kit (provided by SRP) that taught about energy.
