Students set low carbon example

Students set low carbon example
Students at the University of East Anglia have saved some 89 tonnes of CO2 through a variety of energy saving measures, it has emerged.

As part of the national Switch Off Student campaign, students at the University of East Anglia have reduced their energy consumption by over ten per cent and saved over £17,500 on energy bills.

According to the Norwich Evening News, this is the equivalent amount of energy as leaving a 15-watt energy saving light bulb on for over 1,550 years.

Phil Biddle, head of energy efficiency at E.ON, which backed the campaign, commenting on the success of the initiative said: "It's a myth that saving energy has to be hard work and the students have shown how small changes can make a big impact when it comes to reducing your overall energy consumption."

The Student Switch Off website claims that, nationwide, 500 tonnes of carbon emissions have been saved from entering the atmosphere as a result of the scheme.
