Duke Energy’s Wayne Baker, a maintenance superintendent at Crystal River coal-fired units 1 and 2, interacts with students from Homosassa Elementary School as part of a field trip program Duke launched this school year. In all, more than 600 Citrus County students toured the Crystal River Energy Complex to learn how Duke generates electricity for more than 1.7 million customers in Florida.

Since September 2015, more than 500 fifth-graders have taken part in a hands-on pilot program through Duke Energy.

The program consists of inviting students to tour the Crystal River energy complex to learn how Duke Energy generates power every day.

Barbara Martinuzzi, Duke Energy executive assistant, worked to design the program in accordance with Citrus County School Board curriculum, alongside Scott Hebert, Citrus County elementary education director.
