Turn off lights when you leave a room

2 years ago
Number of Participants: 1

When you leave a room, make sure you turn off all the lights. It may sound obvious but doing this small, simple action, can save you money on your electricity bills, plus, save energy!
If you turn off the lights whenever you leave a room, you can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 0.15 pounds per hour. If just 330 people turned off one light, for one hour a day, for one year, we could save 7334 kWh per year, the equivalent of removing 10 cars (or 11,610 pounds of CO 2) from the road for an entire year.
