Date: December 9th
Location: TEP Headquarters- 88 E. Broadway Blvd, Tucson, AZ 85701
(This is a secure facility, so only merit badge attendees will be allowed inside the building.)
Things to know for the TEP Energy Merit Badge Day: Please wear Class A uniform, bring blue card signed by your unit, and bring your energy audit and log with you.
You will need to start requirement number 4 prior to the merit badge day, as follows:
Conduct an energy audit of your home. Keep a 14 day log that records what you and your family did to reduce energy use. Include the following in your report and, after the 14 day period, discuss what you have learned with your counselor.
- a. List the types of energy used in your home such as electricity, wood, oil, liquid petroleum, and natural gas, and tell how each is delivered and measured, and the current cost; OR record the transportation fuel used, miles driven, miles per gallon, and trips using your family car or another vehicle.
- b. Describe ways you and your family can use energy resources more wisely. In preparing your discussion, consider the energy required for the things you do and use on a daily basis (cooking, showering, using lights, driving, watching TV, using the computer). Explain what is meant by sustainable energy sources. Explain how you can change your energy use through reuse and recycling.
Please bring this information with you.
