CFL Charlie classroom kit

The CFL Charlie program is a Touchstone Energy program sponsored by Jo-Carroll Energy for your school. CFL Charlies takes his energy efficiency message from the online Kids Energy Zone into classrooms with the "Super Energy Saver" classroom kits. The kits are designed for grades K-5, and are packed with materials that teach kids how to become "Super Energy Savers" at home. Materials include:

  • Take-home checklists that identify energy-saving steps in the home
  • "Super Energy Saver" certificates, signed by CFL Charlie
  • Activity sheets

Hot Line Demonstration

Join Lloyd the Raccoon and Chip the Squirrel as they learn about safety and electricity, both in the home and when at play.This interactive demonstration can be performed for large groups of any age. Audio/visuals include a video presentation and demonstration by Jo-Carroll Energy linemen. Often used for school assemblies, kids' safety days, county fairs and community events, this demonstration illustrates real-to-life encounters that kids have with electricity every day. Kids will learn basic safety tips and more.

Because of height and electric requirements, a site inspection must take place a few weeks in advance of the presentation. Please contact us in advance of your event so we can be sure that adequate space and electric hook-ups will be available.

Someone from Jo-Carroll Energy's staff is available to present the CFL Charlie and other safety and efficiency programs. Call 800-858-5522 to set up a time for someone to visit your classroom and present a lesson for you.
