Delhi Saves 206 Megawatts Electricity During Earth Hour

Delhites saved 206 MW of electricity on Saturday night by switching off non-essential lights and other appliances during the ‘Earth Hour’, discom officials said.

The consumers of BSES discoms saved 130 MW while observing the Earth Hour from between 8.30 pm to 9.30 pm, a BSES spokesperson said.

“Delhi as a whole saved 206 MW. Last year, Delhi had saved 279 MW,” discom officials said.

The Tata Power-DDL discom consumers collectively saved 71 MW during the Earth Hour 2024 by switching off non-essential lights and participating in the World Wide Fund (WWF) initiative, a spokesperson of the company said.

“We extend our gratitude to all our consumers, including the members of resident and industrial welfare associations who joined us in this initiative,” she said.

The WWF-promoted event was aimed at drawing attention to the fragile condition of the planet, officials said.

As part of Earth Hour, Delhiites joined over a billion people in cities across the globe, including Mumbai, Los Angeles, London, Hong Kong, Sydney, Rome, Manila, Singapore and Dubai by switching off non-essential lights and appliances for an hour in a symbolic gesture of showing their concern for the environment, they said.
