Earth Hour – sign up for a solar powered city

18 Mar

Earth Hour is almost upon us.

WWF’s long-term vision for Hong Kong is a transformation into a sustainable, low-carbon city. To make this vision a reality, support from business, industry and the public are the keys to success. By gaining widespread support for clean, sustainable and renewable sources of energy, we can all work together to help Hong Kong become a low-carbon or even a zero-carbon city.

Businesses have an important role to play in creating a more sustainable city – in addition to improving their energy efficiency and reducing their carbon emissions, companies and organizations can also invest in and promote local renewable energy projects, and even obtain some of their electricity from renewable sources. For example, by purchasing one of Hong Kong’s first Renewable Energy Certificates from WWF, a company can prove that part of their electricity supply is generated from renewable energy. The funds raised from these certificates will be used to promote local solar energy power supply projects, helping Hong Kong to increase the amount of electricity generated by solar power.

Individuals can contribute to this goal by installing the small-scale solar systems on their rooftops, terraces or in other vacant areas. We can also choose to use energy-efficient appliances, reduce our electricity consumption and in general consume less and consume wisely in our daily lives.
