Webinar Description:

This webinar will discuss ElectriCities of North Carolina’s project to develop an energy education program that centers on daily electric energy use and weather tracking. The intent was to educate high school students about the relationship between electric energy use and temperature. Each student was loaned a kilowatt meter and a folio to collect data on daily electric meter readings, daily high and low temperatures and hourly kilowatt usage for five electric appliances in their household.

E-Tracker was the creation of Phil Bisesi, ElectriCities Residential Energy Services Supervisor. The project was a hands-on, innovative and interactive experience that enables students to learn how weather affects electricity use. It was also designed to help students understand science and math better, a chance to master a life skill, and become good stewards of power use. Presentations have already been given to four schools with the intent of presenting at more.

Enjoy a video developed by ElectriCities of NC to educate students on energy usage and read an article in the Lexington Dispatch on the project.
