The Energy Hog Program makes learning about energy efficiency and conservation fun! The Energy Hog is a dastardly character who puts a face to the concept of wasted energy, Online, in books, and via live visits, the Energy Hog shows how he and other hogs like him waste lots of energy. Kids to the rescue!
Students learn how to defeat the Energy Hog with the dynamic, quick-witted Energy Hog Buster. Using Energy Hog games, guides and other free resources, teachers and energy educators train students to save energy and become Hog Busters themselves.
