Help Kids Learn About Solar Power and Electric Vehicles

MGE's Earth Day Every Day videos help younger students learn about energy-related topics.

What’s that cool car in front of us? How do cars run on batteries? What are those things in the ground we just drove by at the airport? How do we get electricity from the sun? If any of these questions sound familiar, MGE has some brief videos to help answer them.
MGE has videos available in English and Spanish featuring Nelson the peregrine falcon to help educate our youngest customers about our local solar arrays and the benefits of electric vehicles. Nelson, named in honor of Earth Day founder Gaylord Nelson, is one of the many peregrine falcons that have hatched in our nesting box at Blount Generating Station.
