Although scams involving utility bills are rare, fraud attempts are on the rise.
In a variety of fraudulent schemes nationwide, scammers have contacted utility customers posing as an electric, gas or water utility.
Getting kids excited about the concept of electricity and how to use it wisely requires creativity and humor. To help get the message across, New Richmond Utilities sponsored National Theatre for Children performances of “The Energized Guyz” at local schools in 2015.
The Energized Guyz: Daylight Savings Crime features two professional actors who play a variety of characters in the 25-minute program. Students learn about energy efficiency while cheering on the play’s hero, a light bulb store owner who needs to stop an evil villain who is wasting all the energy in town.
