The goal of the My Energy Kit Challenge is to save 10 million kilowatt-hours of energy.
A kilowatt-hour, or kWh, is a measurement of energy that describes the electricity used (1,000 watts) over a length of time (one hour).
In other words, 10 million kilowatt-hours is a LOT of energy!
Saving that amount of energy is equivalent to:
Planting over 116,000 TREES*
Taking nearly 1,500 CARS off the road for an entire year*
Conserving the electricity from over 800 HOMES for an entire year*
Request the kits. Save energy.
See the difference YOUR school is making.
Here you can see your school’s current number of Energy Kit requests and how much energy has been saved as a result, measured in kilowatt-hours (kWh). Numbers are updated by Friday of each week.
Once you see your school’s numbers, use the calculator slide below to translate those saved kWh into real-world energy equivalencies.
