Cooperation for Saving Electricity Requested
3 December 2012

Kyoto City is asking its citizens to cooperate for saving electricity.
According to the estimate by Kansai Electronic Power Co., Ltd., the area they are responsible for supplying electricity successfully saved 5.6% of electricity used compared to the winter of 2010, thanks to the continuous electricity saving efforts since summer.
Based on this estimation, Kyoto City will ask for cooperation for electricity saving to its citizens and business operators. The city’s goal is to cut 6% electricity consumption from that of winter 2010. City hall staff will try their best to save as much electricity as possible.
Electricity savings periods will be from December 3rd, 2012 to March 29th, 2013, from 9:00 to 21:00.
Please do not try too hard and take proper care for elderly people, young children and sick people.
There are many things we can do in our everyday lives: to turn off unnecessary lights, setting air conditioners at 20 degrees, unplugging unused devices out of outlets, etc.
