BSE urges consumers to switch off lights on March 25
New Delhi : One of two Delhi’s power distribution companies BSE, urged its 40 lakhs consumers to switch off their lights during Earth Hour- 8.30 pm to 9.30 pm on March 25.
According to BSES last year "Delhi saved around 230 MW (207 MW in BSES areas)."
Delhiites will once-again join over a billion people in Mumbai, Los Angeles, London, Hong Kong, Sydney, Rome, Manila, Singapore, Dubai and in over 7000 cities across the six continents.
BSES said that its two sister discoms in the capital "BRPL and BYPL will also switch off all non-essential lights at their over 400 offices, spread across an area of around 950 sq kms, during the appointed hour."
Earth Hour is an annual international event created by the World Wide Fund (WWF) that urges households and businesses across the world to turn off their non-essential lights and electrical appliances for one hour at the appointed time to raise awareness on the need to take action on climate change.
