I just commented on a post written by Mouse and thought, "I'd like to share this". So I am...

I was driving home late last night after work and noticed that every single Office Park, business, car dealership showroom had ALL their lights on, ffs. How many businesses actually turn off unnecessary or nonessential lights off when the last person leaves? The amount of usage could be cut by huge amounts if they did. Can Eskom not target these offenders somehow?

Then there's a plethora of other signs, billboards, spotlights, neon adverts etc that could be switched off too. Another thought... how about switching off all street lights between certain hours, say from 22:00 to 04:00. I know there are some who say that it is a security risk, but less of a risk than the whole suburb reduced to darkness! If Eskom spent 10 more minutes I'm sure they could come up with a multitude of other ideas. It seems all to weak an excuse or the easy way out to just flip the big red switch, to the off position, on suburbia.
