Our final piece to support ‘Go Green Week’ is going to list a few thought provoking facts* to help us remember to turn off those lights and promote energy conservation!

  • Office lights left on overnight use enough energy in a year to heat a home for almost 5 months.
  • A photocopier left on standby overnight wastes enough energy to make 30 cups of tea.
  • A 2°C increase in office temperature creates enough CO2 in a year to fill a hot air balloon.
  • Air conditioning an office for 1 extra hour a day uses enough energy in a month to power a TV for over a year.
  • A computer left overnight for a year creates enough CO2 to fill a double-decker bus.
  • The energy wasted from a compressed air leak the size of a match head is responsible for yearly CO2 emmissions equal to the weight of an elephant.
