When you install the items from your Energize Education Kit, and your family uses energy efficiently at home, you will save energy and lessen your environmental footprint. Also, your family can save money on their utility bill, so it's a win-win!
What does my family need to do?
Your family should help you install the items in your Energize Education Kit and help you complete the homework you receive as part of the program. They can also remind you to return your completed student workbook to your teacher.
Can I get another Energize Education Kit?
No. Due to the limited number of kits produced, only one kit is available to each student.
What do I do if an LED lightbulb breaks?
LED lightbulbs do not contain hazardous materials, so you can dispose of an LED lightbulb the same way you would dispose of broken glass. However, 95 percent of an LED lightbulb is recyclable, so recycling your LED lightbulbs is the best way to dispose of them. Simply call your local government or waste management company to learn the recycling policy in your area.
