DP&L and Vectren have partnered with the Ohio Energy Project to provide a free energy efficiency education program for teachers, students and their families in the Miami Valley. As a part of the effort, DP&L and Vectren will provide 9,000 take-home energy efficiency kits with accompanying classroom curriculum and teacher training.
DP&L has yearly worked with 60 schools, grades 5-12, since 2009. Through hands-on activities in the classroom, the students learn valuable lessons about energy efficiency and conservation to share with their families, such as:
- how to install the energy-saving devices from the kits in their homes.
- how to make a difference by saving energy and helping their families save money at the same time.
The Ohio Energy Project, an award-winning energy education organization, delivers and facilitates the educational program for DP&L. The Ohio EPA recognized the program as an "Outstanding Energy Education Program" in 2008.
