Events during the week will demonstrate ways to conserve energy at home, at work and at school.
Today is Electricity Impact Day. Almost 40 per cent of an institutional building’s electricity is consumed by lighting systems.
Tomorrow is the Tieless Tuesday Challenge. A two-degree adjustment to your thermostat setting can lower electricity bills by 4 per cent and prevent 225 kilograms of CO2 from entering the atmosphere each year.
Wednesday is Save The Watt Wednesday. Energy audits can help identify ways to reduce energy consumption, save money and benefit the environment.
Thursday is Count Every Kilowatt Day.
