Earth Hour will be initiated in less than 24 hour. Starting 830pm, you have to turn off your electric appliances for one hour, till 930.
Now you may be skeptical. For one hour, did it really work?
Let me start with my photomemory. I remember watching Discovery Channel. There this documentary covering the stories of how deadly a final match of World Cup Germany 2006 could be. by Power Overload. Power Overload is something that the demand for power is more than what they can supply. Of course, the same ‘overload’ term could be use if you have excessive power, but this is not the case. The stories is about worker/technician/chargeman at the Electric Dam have to control the right moment to supply the right power. They called this as TV-Pickup. The moment the world cup ends, the people will go to their kettle, and heat it up. And did you know that electric kettle use a hell lot of power?
Now you know.
So when they go heat up their electric kettle, the demand for power will increase. Not just one, but million households will do that. So the electric worker at the dam, at the right moment just after seconds when world cup ends, opening up more valve of the dam to let the water flow to generate more power. here’s the thing. If he opened it to early, he will supply massive power. if he late to open it, they will experience power outage.
So a split second for them is valuable. //end of my photomemory recall
//lol i just googled up and found the related stuff about the thing above – here.
And now, we don’t have to control that big responsibility. We just need to flick off the switch really. Real easy. Just for one hour.
So save your earth, and remember to check out eco-green tips to save your earth.
