Act 1: Turn out unnecessary lights

Day 1: 25  Acts  of Energy Conservation starts today with actions that conserve energy, water and reduce waste, and reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.  Each day this month we will be posting conservation ideas. Keep track of your conservation actions and enter your project to win up to $1000 for your school.  Sponsors SaskEnergy and partners Saskatchewan Science Centre are supporting us to make Earth Hour and Earth Day into a month of action for a healthy environment.

Our 25  Acts  tip for today is:

If Our School Turned Off Lights When Not Needed

We would save 6920 kgCO2/year

That’s like planting 35 trees

Save 8760 kWh/year, compared to using T8 fluorescent lighting an extra 4 hours per day.
