Meg supports Energy Efficiency Week

Monday, October 25, 2004

Local MP, Meg Munn, has signed up for the ‘Big Turn Off’ this week, which marks the eighth annual Energy Efficiency Week, organised by the Energy Saving Trust.


Meg calls on fellow MP’s to join her and others in switching off all electrical appliances not in use during the period from 2-3pm on Friday 29th October.


Meg said


‘People simply don’t realise how much energy it takes to leave their TV or PC on standby. Appliances will use almost as much energy whilst on standby as when they are in full use. Many people, by leaving appliances on standby, are damaging the environment as well as increasing their fuel bills unnecessarily, often by quite a large amount. It seems common sense to turn off.’


Meg has instructed her office to join in the Big Turn Off this Friday and is inviting people in her constituency of Sheffield Heeley to join in.


The aim of the campaign by the Energy Saving Trust is to persuade people simultaneously to turn off any electrical appliances that are not in use, and to encourage individuals to reflect on the consequences of their everyday use of energy.


The energy wasted in our homes and in the workplace produces carbon dioxide emissions, one of the main contributors to climate change. In response the EST devised the Big Turn Off as a way of highlighting both the economic and environmental reasons for not wasting electricity.
