- Description
- Curriculum

The *Going Green to $ave Green Video Series* aligns with the common-core science and sustainability curriculum. It provides teachers with dedicated 5-to-7-minute lessons that lead to great discussions and opportunities to continue learning through inquiry. Each video builds upon grade-appropriate skills in math and science to build energy efficiency literacy. The series can give students the analytical skills to understand the financial consequences of their decisions.

The course is divided into 5 sections.

To build energy efficiency literacy, start with a learner’s basic understanding of utility charges and energy usage to identify saving opportunities. In the Calculation Conservation video grouping, you can learn the skills needed to become more energy efficient.

Cooling is one of the largest electrical energy consumers. Refrigerators and ACs work hardest on the hottest days when power demand and power prices are at their peak. Improving the efficiency of cooling devices can go a long way in reducing long-term peak demand for electricity.

Lighting retrofits are a key source of demand reduction. We are in a period where LED technology is the dominant lighting technology. Building your client’s energy efficiency literacy on lighting technology can speed adoption.

Demand Reduction is a key part of energy management. It is not just about using more energy-efficient machines and appliances but it is also important to track how you are using energy,

The electrical power grid is a system in action since electricity is powered by pushing. Electricity is pushed through wires into homes and businesses. When the electricity runs into a wall – an off switch, a short circuit, or a closed path – it pushes its way down a better path, the path of least resistance.
