SRP School of Energy, Learn and Save Together

The SRP School of Energy is an interactive partnership between SRP and public elementary schools focused on engaging schools and communities in energy education and conservation efforts.

Program Goals:

- Raise energy awareness in schools
- Engage students, teachers, parents and staff
- Change energy behaviors in a positive way
- Reduce energy consumption at school
- Reduce spending on electricity
- Save Money, Save Energy, Save the Polar Bears, Save the World

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.
