Live experiments raise hair and understanding of electricity basics. We visit any public or private school groups in or near our service area. Sessions last about 45 minutes and include lots of interactive experiments. Call 1-888-743-1501 to schedule an appointment.
The Youth Rally is an annual scholarship competition and leadership camp where students learn about, teamwork, cooperation and communication skills. It also promotes an understanding of the electric industry. Six local students are selected from our service area to join about 80 other students at the College of Idaho in Caldwell, Idaho. Most students are from Idaho but many also come from Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Nevada, Utah & Wyoming.

Net Metering Demonstrations
Our on-site renewable generation and net-metering demonstration project has two main objectives:
- Demonstrate how to install and connect a renewable energy project to the grid safely and legally.
- Show the general public how much the materials and installation actually cost.
Please call 1-888-743-1501 to schedule a private tour for individuals or groups.
Electric Safety Demonstration
In this live demonstration, a co-op lineman demonstrates the effects of high-voltage contact and discusses electrical safety in the home. The sight, sound and smell of a 7,200 volt contact delivers a powerful message! You can request a free demonstration for:
- School children
- Emergency Crews & First Responders
- Equipment Drivers
- Highway Crews
- Any other group who may encounter power lines (Which is EVERYONE!)
Several hazardous situations are enacted including using a six foot “person” made of PVC pipe to show what can happen when people contact 7,200 volts of electricity. The enactments are true to life, using a hot dog to represent a human heart and a melon to represent the head.
We also discuss scenarios involving standard household electricity. The program captures and holds the attention of the audience and helps the viewer remember and respect the power of electricity after leaving the program. You will not soon forget this presentation! Contact us to schedule your free electric safety demonstration.
