Because we live and work in the community we serve, we care about our neighbors and their children. In an effort to keep our kids safe, we also conducted electrical safety demonstrations in each of the winning poster student’s classrooms. These demonstrations are offered free of charge to any school in MVEA’s service territory throughout the year. To learn more about MVEA’s Energy Learning Experiences, visit: www.mvea.coop/demos.
