Uniondale, NY - December 13, 2016 - PSEG Long Island has partnered with The National Theatre for Children (NTC) to bring energy efficiency education to elementary schools throughout Long Island.
“Energy efficiency makes economic sense and is an imperative when combatting greenhouse gas emissions,” said Michael Voltz, Director of Energy Efficiency and Renewables, PSEG Long Island. “The Energized Guyz brings energy efficiency concepts to life in a fun and educational way. Even the youngest of students can understand that they have energy choices and the earlier they learn, the more likely they will incorporate these concepts into their lives.”
NTC’s actor educators will visit 10 schools throughout Long Island on behalf of PSEG Long Island. This innovative program provides students and teachers the opportunity to learn energy conservation. The educational and entertaining program will focus on:
- What energy is
- The uses of energy
- How energy is wasted
- Ways to conserve energy
The 25-minute, interactive comedy for Kindergarten through sixth grade students, features a junior superhero Nikki Neutron who is on a mission to stop energy from being wasted all over town. Along the way, Nikki and the students learn important energy efficiency lessons and even convince the crafty villain, the Sneaker, to join the cause.
PSEG Long Island sponsors the performances at each school, making it a cost-free supplement to lessons in science and the arts. In addition to the live performances, the program includes student playbooks, teacher guides, classroom posters, e-books, and digital games and activities that align with the important concepts outlined in the live show.
PSEG Long Island operates the Long Island Power Authority’s transmission and distribution system under a 12-year contract. PSEG Long Island is a subsidiary of Public Service Enterprise Group Incorporated (NYSE:PEG), a publicly traded diversified energy company with annual revenues of approximately $10.4 billion.
