    March 24, 2023 - The Pioneer


      New Delhi, March 24 -- Power utility BSES has appealed to its over 48 lakh consumers to switch off electrical appliances and non-essential lights for one hour from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm on March 25 to observe 'Earth Hour', officials said. Last year, Delhi had saved 171 MW electricity on account of Earth Hour, they said. Earth Hour is a global environmental movement started by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in 2007.

      "We sincerely appeal to our over 4.8 million consumers and around 2 million residents in our area to make the right choice for the planet and for the future generations that will inherit it.

      This Earth Hour, 'switch-off and invest in our planet'. Citizens can help protect the natural world to safeguard our future," a BSES spokesperson said. "BSES discoms are actively championing sustainable growth by promoting renewable, roof-top solar, EV charging, electric vehicles, battery storage, behavioural energy efficiency, and demand side management programs.

      We also urge consumers to adopt a sustainable way of life and adopt green options like solar energy, EVs, and energy efficiency as a way of life," the spokesperson added.
