If you participated in the Earth Hour, last Saturday, you must be eager to know what difference you made.“There was 55 mw fall between 8.30 pm and 9.30 pm. While it might sound less compared to the huge power load we have, it has made a difference,’’ say Bescom officials.
According to Karnataka coordinator, WWF, Vinay Kumar, Earth Hour was only a symbolic effort, so calculating the savings does not mean much. “What is important is that it shows energy can be saved if you make these small sacrifices,” he added
Earth Hour saved 55 mw power in Bangalore.Compared with Bangalore, Mumbai did a little better by saving 65 MW. Earth Hour is a global call to action to every individual, every business and every community throughout the world. Thousands of cities and towns in 125 countries took part in earth hour.
Earth hour proved energy can be saved if you make these small sacrifices. “This one hour isn’t going to have that big of an impact on greenhouse gas emissions . . . We want people to make Earth Hour every hour.” Tara Wood, a spokeswoman for the WWF, said
