We recognize that teachers play a critical role in helping students learn to use energy safely. The e-SMARTkids (external link)website provides kids, teachers, and parents with resources to learn about electricity and natural gas, and how to use them safely. There are curriculum-based games and videos for kids, lesson plans, and safety book order forms for teachers and important safety information for parents.
We target 3rd-6th grade elementary educators and students in schools in our service territories, offering printed material and online information to help teach and learn about staying safe around electricity and natural gas. The material also addresses national science learning standards for this age group.
Set your hot water heater to no higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit. This isn't just energy smart—it's also safer, since it reduces the likelihood of accidental burns.
