Earth Hour: 203MW Load DropPrint this page
Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) recorded a small drop in demand during Earth Hour last Saturday with a load reduction of 203MW. In the same energy conservation campaign last year, TNB posted a bigger drop in electricity usage of 550MW. High power consumption during the current hot weather might have contributed to the lower reduction in energy consumption during this year's Earth Hour. A new maximum demand of 14,890MW was registered on March 25, 2010, beating the previous peak of 14,740MW on March 14, 2010. TNB is in full support of Earth Hour which calls for the switching off non-essential lights and electrical appliances for one hour to raise awareness towards the need to take action on climate change.
