What is the PSO Energy Saver Kit Program?

The PSO Energy Saver Kit Program was developed to teach students easy ways to use energy more efficiently in their homes. Program content supports Oklahoma Academic State Standards so you can easily integrate the program into existing curriculum.

What is included in the PSO Energy Saver Kit Program?

The PSO Energy Saver Kit Program comes complete with a teacher book filled with lesson plans and engaging activities that can be used inside and outside of the classroom. Each teacher and student will receive an individual Student Guide, Take-Home Student Workbook, and a PSO Energy Saver Kit. The kit includes energy efficient products that will help students implement classroom lessons at home. Kit items include:

  • Much More!

What are the participation requirements?

5th Grade Students and Teachers in PSO’s service territory are eligible to participate in the PSO Energy Saver Kit Program. Participation requirements are minimal. All we ask in return for your participation in the program is that your students complete a short Student Survey. The Student Survey contains a pre- and post-program quiz. Survey responses help gauge the knowledge gained by each student during the program. If your students take a pledge to be energy efficient and return their Student Surveys, each student will receive a PSO Certificate of Achievement! A self-addressed postage-paid return envelope is provided in your Teacher Materials.

Is there a cost to participate in the PSO Energy Saver Kit Program?

There is no cost to you, your students, or your school district to participate in the PSO Energy Saver Kit Program. Franklin Energy® develops and implements the PSO Energy Saver Kit Program on behalf of PSO.

Are there a maximum number of kits for each class?

One kit will be provided for each student enrolled in your class. There is not a maximum number of kits for each class; however, there are a limited number of kits for each school year. When this maximum number of kits has been reached, no more classrooms will be able to participate until the following school year.

If I enroll in the program how will my school benefit?

Your school will get to work with PSO on a select program that can make an impact in your community. In addition to teaching lessons that promote lifelong wise use of energy, each participating teacher will receive a gift card for their classroom when 80% of their student surveys are completed and returned.

What do I do if an LED Light Bulb breaks?

LED Light Bulbs do not contain hazardous materials, and therefore can safely be disposed of the same way you would dispose a broken glass. However, 95% of an LED Light Bulb is recyclable, so recycling your LED Light Bulbs is the best way to dispose of them. Simply call your local Waste Management Company to learn the recycling policy in your area.
