Shelby Electric Cooperative has been running a program that’s designed to teach kids about energy use in their homes. As part of the program the kids also get to meet “CFL Charlie”, the Cooperative’s mascot.
Heidi Hall with Shelby Electric Cooperative coordinates the program, and shared how the program discusses two main topics with the kids. Electricity safety, and ways to conserve energy.
CFL Charlie gives the kids a curriculum kit that the kids take home, and analyze their own home’s energy use. Once that’s done, CFL Charlie gives the kids a certificate they can take home.
To get your school involved with the program, you can contact Heidi Hall at Shelby Electric Cooperative.
