E-Day - Save some Energy

Today (Wednesday 27th February) is e-day. Well, did you know?

From 6pm tonight until 6pm on Thursday 28th e-day is there to focus attention of reducing energy. Their dedicated website has a real time energy monitor which shows how much energy is being used in England, Scotland and Wales in Gigawatts (10 million times 100 watt lightbulbs). It is updated every few minutes and hopes to show the difference we can make if we “Leave Things Off” - switching TVs off standby for example, or turning unwanted lights off tonight.

The campaign has asked many organisations to suggest solutions and these are listed on the website. So - do your bit, switch something off, get an idea of how you can make a small change to counteract climate change and watch the results over the next 24 hours.
