Powering Schools – Empowering Education

Learn how CoServ supports community through local schools

At CoServ, we want to encourage and inspire educators and students – who better than a power company to ignite imagination?

Adopt-A-School

Through our Adopt-A-School program, we donate books to elementary school libraries, bring supplies and snacks for students during STAAR testing and teach children how to stay safe when near power equipment.

Plus, our Community Relations Team takes on customized projects for our adopted elementary schools because just like children, each school is different and has its own unique needs.

POWERrace

Every child is a winner who plays CoServ POWERrace® – a giant board game that helps students learn how power companies distribute electricity to a city in a fun, hands-on way as they compete to provide reliable service at a good value.

It takes imagination and strategy to navigate the real-life challenges of building electric infrastructure – including city permits, financing and lightning strikes – but with a leader guide, playing cards and score sheets, students have every opportunity to learn.

And when students learn, we all win.

Safety Demos

Keeping the community safe around power equipment is a top priority – this is why CoServ provides electric arcing and gas safety demonstrations for schools, first responders and at community events.

In a controlled environment, our Energy Education Technicians teach about the power and potential danger of electric and gas infrastructure that students may encounter in our communities and what to do in case of emergency.

Solar Classroom Field Trip

This is no ordinary field trip because this is no ordinary field. The CoServ Solar Station sits on the site of a former peanut farm and comes complete with an on-site classroom where students can learn about solar energy.

After a tour of the solar farm, CoServ personnel explain how the sun’s rays are converted from direct current to alternating current, discuss the impact of solar power on CoServ’s system and show what it takes to generate 2 megawatts of electricity from pure Texas sun.

Our Community Relations Team is available to teach students of all ages. How can we serve you and your school? Contact us at schools@coserv.com.
