Can u take 10 seconds away from ur busy schedule?


Here is a chance to make a difference, by devoting JUST 10 seconds a day.
You don’t need to go anywhere, donate money, stage protests or shout slogans.
How? If you use computer to work, just remember to switch off your monitor every time you leave your desk. Very simple, isn’t it?
What difference does it make? Roughly, normal monitors consume around 150 W.
Even if your screen remains ON for 1 hour per day without any use, energy wasted per day is 150 W-h (or 0.15 ‘units’).
This is enough to light a small lamp for 10 hours! If you care to switch off your monitor each time you leave your place, you save electricity enough for basic household needs of a small family in a village!
If your monitor remains ON overnight, this figure becomes 10-fold ,so you can probably save electricity for 10 families.
And supposing that you leave your seat 5 times a day and it takes 1 second to switch the monitor ON/OFF,
you spend only 10 seconds a day for this deed which saves LOTS of energy on a long run!
I hope you will follow this practice…
Energy saved is energy produced !!
