An interactive session modelled on television’s “The Price is Right” that will have everyone laughing their way to money and energy savings.
“If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it” is a well-known business rule, but it applies to energy usage as well. The trouble is, most of us get just one measure of our electricity consumption: a monthly bill with a single, bottom line. So how can we save power if we have no way of knowing just how it was used? What uses more, a toaster or a television? What about a computer, a photocopier or a coffee maker?
Just like “The Price is Right”, Start Saving Energy Today features a panel of audience volunteers guessing (“bidding”) the power consumption of a range of items, which are then tested with a power meter.
- Learn about the link between electricity and greenhouse gases.
- Be astounded by how much power some everyday items consume – including when they are switched off.
- Be impressed by how little power some newer products consume.
- Quickly realize that there are plenty of actions anyone can take at home and work to start saving power right away.
So Come On Down for fun, involvement and insight for everyone!
