What is the Home Energy Challenge Scavenger Hunt?

The Home Energy Challenge Scavenger Hunt is a program for families with K-12 students living in an Eversource electric 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.

What will the student learn?

The Home Energy Challenge Scavenger Hunt and accompanying lessons about home energy conservation and efficiency will engage families in learning about the energy they use at home. Using lessons and tools like the Kill-a-Watt meter, families become Draft Detectives and seek out Phantom Loads, learn about energy-efficient lighting choices and find drafts around the home.

Students are encouraged to share photos during the Scavenger Hunt by posting photos of their projects on their social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) using #HomeEnergyChallenge, and tagging Eversource in their state: @EversourceMA, @EversourceCT or @EversourceNH.*
