Coffs turns off Earth Hour

ENERGY consumption across regional NSW dropped by seven per cent on Saturday night, as the lights were dimmed on the Coffs Coast for Earth Hour.

Major power distributor Country Energy reported massive power savings between 8.30pm and 9.30pm.

On the Mid North Coast, residents contributed to an average decrease of 3.3 per cent on the average Saturday night energy consumption.

Country Energy regional manger Brian McLean said the savings showed a commitment to the environment and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

“Appliances such as televisions, microwaves, computers and phone chargers all use a small amount of energy when they are left on at the power point so turning them off, along with unnecessary lights, makes a difference.”
