The Central Electricity Supply Utility (CESU) on Thursday appealed to its customers to observe the Earth Hour on March 23 by switching off non-essential lights in their homes from 8.30 pm to 9.30 pm to pledge their support for Save Mother Earth.

Chief Executive Officer of the central utility Sudarsan Nayak advised all the field officials to observe the event in their houses, offices and sensitise the 16 lakh customers on the importance of saving the Earth from global warming.

Reduction of carbon emission is the main tool to Earth’s increasing temperature level. As the distributor of electricity, CESU has the responsibility to educate people about global warming, Nayak said.

One unit of electricity emits 0.79 kg of carbon dioxide. One MW of electricity generates 1.09 tons of carbon dioxide. Switching off light for one hour will save 50 MW, Nayak said.
