Kids Safety

Electricity is everywhere. It powers the appliances and computers that surround kids – they come across outlets, cords and power lines every day. Natural gas is always nearby, too, providing our homes with heat and energy that make our lives comfortable.

As part of Duke Energy’s ongoing commitment to educate our children, this section teaches kids the principles of electricity and natural gas, and the important safety skills they need to make good choices. Kids can play interactive games, conduct fun experiments, complete hands-on activities, and learn skills that can prevent injuries and save lives.
