Slide 5:

200,000,000 kg of CO 2 less per year If every house in Delhi would just change 1 bulb to a CFL http://www.flickr.com/photos/mkuram/4577359628/

Slide 6:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/krossbow/4316763553/sizes/z/in/photostream/ Switch off unnecessary lights and fans Reduce annual CO 2 emissions by 28 kg Reduce annual electricity bills by ` 134 per bulb and fan kept on for just an extra hour each day

Slide 7:

If just 1000 homes do that, that’s 28000 kg of CO 2 less per year Switch off unnecessary lights and fans

Buying a new home appliance?:

Buying a new home appliance? Look out for the 5 star label and buy a higher star rated product Fans (1200mm sweep) Reduce annual CO 2 emissions by 36 kg Reduce annual electricity bills by ` 176 Refrigerators (Frost-free) Reduce annual CO 2 emissions by 269 kg Reduce annual electricity bills by ` 1312 Air conditioners (1.5 tons split) Reduce annual CO 2 emissions by 283 kg Reduce annual electricity bills by ` 1382

Slide 9:

Install a solar water heater Reduce annual CO 2 emissions by 687 kg Reduce annual electricity bills by ` 3352 http://www.flickr.com/photos/90417577@N00/2413226470/

Slide 10:

Use the geyser efficiently. Have baths in quick succession Reduce annual CO 2 emissions by 344 kg Reduce annual electricity bills by ` 1676 Reduce the temperature setting on the geyser. Geysers come with a factory setting of 60 o C but you need water at only 40 o C for a comfortable bath. Reduce annual CO 2 emissions by 172 kg Reduce annual electricity bills by ` 838 http://www.flickr.com/photos/chrisandhilleary/159821463/

Don’t use the hot wash setting:

Don’t use the hot wash setting *Reduce CO 2 emissions by 98 kg annually *Reduce annual electricity bills by ` 478

Eat together:
