Go Green with Gabby Green!

Exelon Generation’s Gabby Green character can help your child or students learn more about the benefits of reducing energy use to help our environment and will teach them about the different forms of alternative energy production.

The History of Gabby Green

Gabby Green is a great partner to help students learn more about the benefits of recycling and reducing energy use to help our environment while teaching them about the different forms of energy production. 

Exelon Generation introduced Gabby Green and related educational materials in 2008 to provide a fun, effective way to communicate the benefits of reducing energy use to students from Kindergarten through 6th grade.  Exelon Nuclear employees have made hundreds of visits to schools surrounding each of Exelon’s nuclear energy facilities in Pennsylvania, Illinois and New Jersey to deliver the message about energy conservation while teaching students how clean electricity is produced.

Educating the community about energy conservation and sustaining a green environment is one way that Exelon Generation supports the Exelon 2020 campaign, which is a comprehensive environmental strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and lower the carbon footprint of Exelon, its subsidiaries and its host communities and customers by more than 15 million metric tons of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions per year by 2020.

Gabby's Tips to Save Electricity and the Environment

  1. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle – Reduce the water you use. Reuse all bags. Recycle paper, bottles and cans.
  2. Be Smart at Home – Run the washing machine, dryer and dishwasher with a full load only. Use them in the early morning or late evening hours when it’s cooler outside. Unplug small appliances when you’re not using them for an extended period of time. Avoid leaving computers and laptops on standby when not using them.
  3. Change Your Lights – Use energy-saving compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) throughout your home.
  4. Use Water Wisely – Turn off the water while brushing your teeth. Also, don’t run the faucet waiting for cold water when you want a drink. Refrigerate filtered tap water instead.
  5. Be Smart on the Road – Ask your parents to obey the posted speed limit and to avoid starting and stopping quickly. Driving moderately can reduce gasoline usage by 5 to 33 percent.
