Frequently Asked Questions

What is the SaveNow School2Home Energy Efficiency Program?

The SaveNow School2Home Energy Efficiency Program teaches students easy ways to use energy more efficiently in their homes. Program content easily integrates into your curriculum.

What is included in the program?

The program comes complete with an instruction book filled with lesson plans and engaging activities you can use inside and outside of the classroom. Each teacher and student will receive an individual Student Guide, Student Workbook, and a School2Home Kit. The kit includes energy efficient products that will help students implement classroom lessons at home. Kit items include:

  • Three 9-watt LED Light Bulbs
  • High-Efficiency Showerhead
  • Kitchen Faucet Aerator
  • Bathroom Faucet Aerator
  • Digital Thermometer
  • Flow Rate Test Bag
  • Much More!

What are the participation requirements?

Participation requirements are minimal. All we ask in return for your program participation is that your students complete a short Student Survey. The Student Survey contains a pre- and post-program quiz. Survey responses help gauge the knowledge gained by each student during the program. If your students take a pledge to be energy efficient and return their Student Surveys, each student will receive a wristband and a CPS Energy Certificate of Achievement! A self-addressed postage-paid return envelope is provided in your Teacher Materials.

Is there an enrollment deadline?

There are a limited number of kits available for each school year. If you are interested in participating, enroll now.

Is there a cost to participate in the program?

There is no cost to you, your students, or your school district. Resource Action Programs® develops and implements the SaveNow Energy School2Home Energy Efficiency Program on behalf of CPS Energy.

Are there a maximum number of kits for each class?

One kit will be provided for each student enrolled in your class. There is not a maximum number of kits for each class; however, there are a limited number of kits for each school year. When this maximum number of kits has been reached, no more classrooms will be able to participate until the following school year.

If I enroll in the program, how will my school benefit?

Your school will get to work with CPS Energy on a select program that can make an impact in your community. In addition to teaching lessons that promote lifelong wise use of energy, each participating teacher will receive a gift card in the amount of $50 for their classroom when 80% of their Student Surveys are completed and returned by May 4th, 2018.

What do I do if an LED light bulb breaks?

Dispose of an LED light bulb the same way you would dispose of broken glass. LED light bulbs do not contain hazardous materials. However, 95% of an LED light bulb is recyclable, so recycling your LED light bulbs 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.
