School Energy Pledge Program
Duquesne Light Company is bringing a unique energy education and savings program to elementary (K-5) schools in Allegheny and Beaver counties.
A kick-off assembly features a short, informative video designed to educate students on the importance of energy efficiency and to inspire them to take actions in their own homes. Hands-on follow-up lessons link classroom concepts with practical applications. Students then receive a pledge form to take home and discuss with their families.
Families are asked to sign the pledge form, promising to install energy-saving measures in the home. Once a household pledges to take energy-saving actions, Duquesne Light will send a free Watt Choices kit (limit one kit per household). The energy-savings kits includes:
Students learn how to reduce energy consumption by helping to install the energy-saving items in their homes. The school receives a donation from Duquesne Light for each household that participates.
