Wiley 6th graders were treated to a special presentation today by Duke Energy and The National Theatre for Children. Actors David and Nate put on a lively and engaging show, calling on student actors to help them talk about power, energy, and conservation!
Energy comes from all sorts of natural resources - renewable and non-renewable! Resources like natural gas and coal are non-renewable resources. Resources like water, sunlight, and trees are renewable.
Electricity is measured on electric bills in Kilowatt Hours. Ten 100 Watt lightbulbs that are on for 1 hour would use 1 Kilowatt hour of energy.
Duke Energy is offering a FREE energy kit for Wilety families. Students learned that the kit includes energy saving lightbulbs, a special aerator attachment for the faucet, and other energy saving measures. To learn more or to claim yours today, go to www.myenergykit.org.
