Watts Up or Down Challenge

Co-Hosted by REAP and Chugach Electric Association

In an effort to educate students about energy efficiency and conservation, REAP partnered with Chugach Electric Association to co-host the Watts Up or Down Challenge. This friendly three-month competition encouraged students to reduce their families’ energy consumption and learn the basic principals of energy generation and usage.

The 1st Place “Team Zogawatt”, Mr. Noah Zogas’ 7th grade team at Goldenview Middle School, was awarded a pizza party for their achievements.

The challenge ran from October 1st to December 31st, 2013 and encouraged more than 700 students to complete an energy efficiency workbook and sign up for MyPower, an online application which tracks monthly energy use. In all students saved enough energy to power an Xbox for 20 years. Wow!

REAP would like to congratulate all the students who participated in this year’s challenge for a job well done!
