PPL Electric Utilities offers a whole host of energy savings services for residential customers through its E-power House program. All those services are wasted, however, if no one uses them, so the company has sponsored a special interactive educational display at the Da Vinci Science Center in Allentown, Pennsylvania, which will offer visitors an up-close look at energy efficiency at home.
The display is called (of course) the E-power House, and is composed of a 15-foot-tall, cut-away model home.
The E-power House features a bathroom, bedroom, laundry room, kitchen and living room, each of which displays opportunities for energy savings. The home makes use of roof-mounted solar panels, extensive attic insulation, and a ceiling fan.
Mom and Dad can peer into the little rooms and make notes of important energy-saving tips and information. The kids can ride a bicycle set up in front of the model home to light up side-by-side incandescent, compact fluorescent and LED light bulbs.
PPL Electric Utility’s parent company, PPL Corporation, is a long-time supporter of the Da Vinci Science Center. More information on the exhibit is available online.
