The Powershop crew have decided to show our support for COP15 The Copenhagen Climate Change Conference by proving it’s possible to make a small change ourselves that can make a big difference to the world. We reckon we can each cut back our energy consumption by 10% for the 10 days of the summit. If all of NZ were to do this for a year it would save 200 million tonnes of carbon!
If you’ve been following the road to Copenhagen and feel the need to do something why not try and do 10 in 10 – 10% less power in 10 days.
We’re going to start on Day One of Copenhagen on the 7th of December through to the 16th, two days before the summit ends. Become a fan of the 10 in 10 Challenge on Facebook.
It may not exactly be earth saving, but it’s a start. Anyone is free to join in. All you need to do is start to record your meter reading every day leading up to the 7th and then work out your average daily use. On the 16th work out your average daily use over the 10 days using the Savings Target Spreadsheet and compare to your previous average daily use.
We’ll compile all the results and see just how much of those greenhouse gasses we can clean up at home.
