What is the Home Energy Challenge – Scavenger Hunt Edition?

The Home Energy Challenge – Scavenger Hunt Edition is a program for families with K-12 students living in an Eversource community in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, or Connecticut. It invites students to find Phantom Loads in the home, become Draft Detectives to find sneaky drafts around the home and learn about efficient lighting. All materials needed to participate in the scavenger hunt are included in the kit provided by Eversource. One lucky student per state will be randomly selected to win an iPad!

Once registered, Eversource will provide students with one kit per family that includes materials needed and a guide on how to complete the tasks in the energy scavenger hunt.
