Erie Thames Powerlines understands that children are our future. We believe that by educating children about electrical safety we are able to provide them with the right tools and the knowledge to carry them safely throughout their lives.
We are in our fifth year of our program “Educating School Children on Electrical Safety”. Through the use of visual aids and hands on material, the program educates children on ways they can protect themselves from the dangers and misuse of electricity. The program runs on a four-year cycle to all the elementary schools within our service territory and reaches approximately 1500 students each year, between the ages of 5-13.
The program also offers insight on conservation and the practical ways children can make our world a cleaner place. The school program is one way that Erie Thames Powerlines helps benefit the future of Ontario’s energy structure.
