Students Save Energy, Learn Life Lessons

Students Save Energy, Learn Life Lessons

Elizabethtown Gas is excited to announce its partnership with EmPowered Schools, a hands-on learning program developed by the Alliance to Save Energy. EmPowered Schools uses a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) based curriculum and activities to teach students about the importance of energy efficiency and gives them the tools to save energy and money, at home and in school.

EmPowered Schools teams typically consist of students, often from a single class or club, and is deployed through an online platform offering all of the video lessons, quizzes, and activities students need.  Each EmPowered Schools team is given a toolkit with energy diagnostic instruments, so students can analyze energy use of HVAC systems, lighting, and appliances, and then make recommendations for improving energy efficiency.

On average, participating schools achieve 5-15% energy savings through no-cost operations and behavior changes – which translates to thousands of dollars in savings.

The EmPowered Schools program encourages students to take a leadership role in making their schools and homes more energy efficient, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and saving schools thousands of dollars on their energy bills. Moreover, the program helps students develop and apply valuable leadership skills to carry forward in their education and future careers.

Elizabethtown Gas and the Alliance to Save Energy currently work with 10 schools in the region. Approximately 270 students are enrolled in the year-long program, and each student impacts energy consumption in their larger school communities and homes.
