The 5Es of Energy is a teaching resource that promotes electricity safety and renewable energy. Local area schools can request the resource kit to assist with their electricity education. The resource is compliant with the New Zealand curriculum, is easily accessible for teachers and students, provides staged progress of learning through years 1 to 8 and results in an increased understanding of energy, electricity safety, energy efficiency and renewable energy.

The 5Es of Energy uses an inquiry approach to learning: engage, explore, explain, expand and evaluate.

In addition to the resource kit, MainPower is available to visit schools with additional equipment, if requested.
