PNM teaches New Mexico kids about saving energy

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Public Service Company of New Mexico (PNM) is helping kids get an early start on energy-saving habits.

The power company held an interactive program at elementary schools around the state Monday that were aimed at teaching 5th-graders where energy comes from and how they can do their part to conserve natural resources.

“They’re eager to learn, they want to know more about energy, about electricity, and there’s not a better time to do it than about this grade,” said Shannon Jackson with PNM Energy Efficiency.

As part of the presentation, each student got a take-home energy-saving kit which included high-efficiency lightbulbs and a low-flow shower head. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
