Certain aspects of our work can’t be measured in a bottom-line number on a financial statement. Some of our most significant accomplishments occur as we invest in community education programs to help children realize their potential and teach them about electrical and water safety.

Each spring, fifth graders around Grant County visit Big Bend Community College for Solar Races and Energy Science Days. The event, which is presented in partnership with several area businesses and organizations, focuses on renewable energy sources including hydropower, solar and wind energy. Students enjoy hands-on experiences with one of the highlights including the opportunity to build and race solar-powered cars.

Throughout the summer, Grant PUD visits local libraries throughout the county as part of the North Central Regional Library’s Summer Reading Program. The program shows how the naturally-occurring water cycle allows power companies like Grant PUD to generate electricity while also teaching about how power is delivered to customers throughout Grant County.

Grant PUD is proud to be a partner with the Foundation for Water & Energy Education (FWEE) on their Hydropower and Stem Career Academy. The Foundation provides a weeklong career exploration opportunity for high school students.
