Learn at school. Practice everywhere.

Zap, Bolt and the rest of the EnergyRight Monsters love to save energy! And they love to share what they know with all their friends in schools and youth-serving organizations for kids in grades K-5. During the virtual Eye Spy Energy Kids’ Workshop, students learn all about where energy comes from, how we use energy and ways to practice new energy-saving habits at home and beyond. Teachers will be happy to know that the workshop supports state teaching standards to help with lesson planning!

How can I help my school find resources to save energy?

TVA EnergyRight’s School Uplift program provides schools across the region with the education and financial resources they need to reduce energy costs and improve the quality of their learning environment. Past participating schools have saved an average of $11,000 annually — that means less money toward energy bills and more money for things like textbooks, teaching resources and classroom upgrades!

I know a student whose family may be struggling to pay their utility bills. Is there an assistance program I can share with parents or caregivers?

Absolutely. Start here for more information on the federally funded Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). TVA EnergyRight also offers the Home Uplift program in select areas to help homeowners make important home energy upgrades that save them money and improve the comfort of their home.
