Conservation and Energy Know-How for Educators

Dominion Energy Partners with the Ohio Energy Project to teach students and their families how to conserve energy and save money

CLEVELAND, July 24 -- Dominion Energy Ohio is partnering with the Ohio Energy Project (OEP), an educational non-profit, to deliver a science-based educational program promoting energy conservation and efficiency literacy. Teachers from Ohio will take part in the half-day e3 Smart Program on Weds., July 26 at Dominion Energy’s Ohio Technical Training Center, 418 E. Hines Hill Rd., Boston Heights, OH 44236.

The award-winning program provides the curriculum to help educators teach students about the fundamentals of energy, why it’s important to conserve it and how to become more energy efficient. Teachers will take part in hands-on lab experiences and interactive activities they can use in their classrooms, plus energy efficiency materials for their students.

As part of the program, each student will receive a hot water temperature gauge, flow meter bag, shower head, kitchen faucet aerator and more. In addition, they’ll receive a Student and Family Guide to help them share what they’re learning in the classroom with their families.

The program is free to schools through a Dominion Energy grant. “Everyone has a role in working toward a clean energy future, and we know many people don’t know how to begin. This is the second year we’ve sponsored the e3 Smart Program to help students learn how to become responsible stewards of the planet,” said Mari Cyngier, energy efficiency coordinator at Dominion Energy.
