Modi’s speech makes students save electricity

After getting motivation from Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech on Teacher’s Day in which he had exhorted students to save electricity, the students of local Noorpur Public School here have launched energy saving campaign. A group of 12 students has formed an Energy Conserving Audit (ECA) team under the guidance of school managing director Arvind Dogra and divided it into four sub-committees for launching awareness campaign.

To reduce energy consumption in the school, they have prepared posters and stickers for educating students, teachers and the non-teaching staff of the school about ways to save electricity. The message of energy conservation is also being disseminated through small skits and verbal awareness messages during morning assembly of the school.

Before launching this campaign, the team has recorded the current reading of the electricity meters installed in all blocks of the schools and also collected data relating to the previous power bills and electricity consumption during the past a few months of the school.

The team is motivating the students to turn off fans and lights before the morning assembly, leaving classrooms in the recess and at the end of school time. The team members are also keeping a tab on the wasteful use of electricity by visiting every classroom in the school.

As per information, the team has also urged the school principal to replace all tungsten bulbs with CFLs in the classrooms. The names of the classes which are not co-operating and indifferent towards the energy conservation drive will be announced in the morning assembly so that students don’t forget to turn off lights and fans.
