Welcome “Lab Assistants”
Hey, Families – your Energy Challenge competitor needs your help – and it could save you money!
Here are three important ways you can help with the Home Energy Challenge.
Help Create a Plan
Your child will be creating an Energy Savings Plan for your home, consisting of easy ways your family can save energy and money. He or she will be discovering great energy efficiency ideas both in class and on our website, but we encourage you to help brainstorm even more ways you can save energy.
Help your child’s team win the Home Energy Challenge by reducing your energy use. Use your home’s Energy Savings Plan and see how much money you can save.
Provide Utility Bills
In order to complete the Home Energy Challenge, your child will need to document your household energy usage from three consecutive months of last year and the same three months of this year (they’ll tell you which ones). They need copies of your utility bills to calculate how much you have saved!
That’s it! With those three steps, you can help your child – and lower your utility bills.
