Empower launches campaign to reduce district cooling consumption for the 6th year running.
Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower), the world’s largest district cooling services provider, announced the launch of its summer campaign, under the slogan ‘Switch to 24°C and save more’. The campaign runs from June till end of summer.
This is part of Empower’s efforts to support sustainability and deliver environmentally friendly district cooling services.
The campaign helps customers to reduce their district cooling energy consumption during summer period by encouraging them to set the AC thermostat to 24°C, to reduce cost, promote environmental conservation, save energy, and protect resources, to achieve the transition to a green community.
Empower highlighted that setting the AC thermostat to 24°C is the optimum temperature for ideal cooling, which in turn reduces pressure on the air conditioner, reduces the consumption bill, and significantly reduces carbon emissions; thereby limiting global warming.
The campaign targets end-users of residential and commercial projects covered by Empower’s services, which currently exceeds 100,000 customers. The company is also committed to constantly launch campaigns to raise awareness and enhance the customer participation, to achieve sustainable development.
“Saving on district cooling energy, especially in summer, contributes to the conservation of natural resources and the protection of the environment. Empower constantly strives to contribute to reducing energy consumption and adopts sustainable solutions based on the green economy, to support the ‘Green Economy for Sustainable Development’ initiative.
