Wager on which items use the most energy. See if you've got what it takes to toast a piece of bread by pedal power. Watch a band of pirates discover the treasures of conservation. And then take home what you learn.

Join this fun, interactive event to learn about energy, utility rebates, and how you can save money and energy at home to help the community win $5 million.

The Monroe County Energy Challenge (MCEC) is a community-wide effort to reduce energy use in order to win the
