|Climate change response strategy
Responding to the challenges of climate change is not always about the big issues.
Sometimes it is the little things that count.
On a trip back from Hobart airport late one evening Building Services Officer Ken Siddall noticed Hydro Tasmania Consulting’s Cambridge office was lit up like the MCG.
“It seemed like a huge waste when no one was there working. I also knew how much the power bill was so I started looking at how the lights were controlled and came up with the time clock.
This turns off many of the car park lights and will save around 6,500 kilowatt hours of electricity each year, which is equivalent to more than half the annual electricity used in the average Tasmanian home.”
The result is a reduction in both the building’s power bill and its annual carbon footprint.
