Tipp City seventh graders are working hard to become energy efficient leaders!
Tipp students were chosen to be part of the Be E3 Smart (energy efficiency education) program facilitated by the Ohio Energy Project, OEP, and funded by Dayton Power & Light and Vectren Energy Delivery of Ohio. Tipp was selected to participate in this innovative program and Mrs. Wysocki received training directly from OEP designed to build student leaders and save families money. The Be E3 Smart program teaches students how energy is produced and used. The students will also learn easy ways to conserve energy and increase energy efficiency in their homes.
DP&L and Vectren provided each of the 200 seventh graders with a jam packed energy efficiency kit. The kit included: compact fluorescent lightbulbs, faucet aerators, shower aerator, filter whistles, and more! Once installed, these energy-saving measures will allow the families the opportunity to see how low-cost and no-cost tools can make a substantial difference in lowering household energy use. Tipp City Middle School is grateful to DP&L, Vectren and OEP to provide this real world learning experience for Tipp City students as well as thousands of other families across the Miami Valley.
