The Kit

Every Energy Kit used makes a real difference. When you install energy-efficient showerheads, replace lightbulbs, and insulate your switches and outlets, the energy saved every day adds up.

Duke Energy provides one FREE Energy Kit per household every 36 months for qualified Duke Energy account holders. Households must be associated with schools participating in the My Energy Kit program.

Can’t get a kit? Not to worry! Your request will still be credited to your school and count toward school and classroom rewards.

What’s in the kit?

Two 5-Watt Candelabra LED Bulbs

Just one ENERGY STAR® qualified LED bulb can save approximately $80 or more in energy costs over its lifetime.

Energy-Efficient Showerhead

A standard showerhead uses about 3.8 gallons of water per minute. The water-saving showerhead in the kit uses 1.5 gallons per minute, without sacrificing water pressure. It also features a 9-jet adjustable turbo massage that easily rotates from a gentle needle spray to a forceful jet.

Kitchen Faucet Aerator
Bathroom Faucet Aerator

Most modern faucets pour out about 2.2 gallons per minute (GPM), and older faucets use even more. The aerators in the kit help your faucets use less water – the kitchen aerator uses 1.5 GPM, and the bathroom aerator only 1 GPM. The aerators work by injecting air into the stream. This boosts the water pressure, yet reduces the water used.

Switch and Outlet Insulators

A lack of proper insulation is often a culprit to wasting energy. These insulators for your switches and outlets help to seal small gaps that cause loss of heated or cooled air, and in doing so, they help to conserve energy.

Additional kit contents include:
  • LED Night Light
  • Teflon Tape (used for installing the Showerhead and Faucet Aerators)
  • Water Flow Meter Bag
  • Hot Water Gauge Card
  • Energy Savers Booklet from the U.S. Department of Energy
  • Glow Ring Toy
  • Product Information/Instruction Sheet
