TVAkids.com features a new site design and a number of interactive features—including a cool new game called “Beat the Power Bandit.” Students can take a video tour of TVA’s wind power site, access a wide range of information in the “Homework Helpers” section, and learn about conserving energy at home and at school. The site also features science fair ideas that may be of interest to parents and curriculum materials for teachers.
Teaching children about energy efficiency is now center stage on the interactive site, says TVA President and CEO Tom Kilgore. “It is important to encourage behavioral changes in energy use early in life, and we know kids can be a big influence on their parents. By using electricity more efficiently, our customers can help us make a difference in reducing our electricity consumption and in meeting our region’s energy needs as economically as possible.”
