How are we doing?

Can you believe that spring is right around the corner? It feels like it was just yesterday when we were all drinking hot cocoa and building snowmen in the meadow – and Duke Energy’s in-school programs, Kilowatt Kitchen and The E-Team, were performing their way through Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, North Carolina and South Carolina in the midst of wintery bliss. It’s amazing how fast time flies when you’re saving energy! Now that fall and winter have come and gone, we wanted to take a look at just how much we’ve accomplished together. According to the stats, the My Energy Kit Challenge is clearly heating up right alongside these fresh spring temps. Here’s where we’re at so far:

Pretty cool, huh? It’s impressive how much good can happen when you work together. Each Energy Kit that your school requests will help us toward our goal of saving energy. Not only will the items in the Energy Kit make your house more energy efficient, but every request takes your school one step further in the My Energy Kit Challenge. Remember – 100 Energy Kit requests = $250 for your school. Your families and staff can request their FREE Energy Kit and credit your school by signing up right here at, or by calling our hotline at 1-855-386-9548.

Thank you for encouraging your staff and students’ families to request their kits and make a difference for our planet.
