This Saturday, March 25th, from 20h30 to 21h30, the lights in Indelague - Indústria Elétrica, S.A.'s facilities will be turned off during the Earth Hour 2023, in an exemplary act of environmental awareness.
The Earth Hour is an initiative organised by WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature) that encourages citizens, companies and governments to switch off their lights for an hour, thus showing their support for the fight against climate change. Switching off the lights is a symbolic gesture to raise awareness of a problem that concerns us all: climate change.
It is the first time that Indelague joins this global movement that brings together hundreds of millions of people around the world to protect the planet.
This action aims to result in a change of attitudes with a view to reducing carbon emissions in everyday activities.
Before that, in 2019, the Indelague Group installed 600 photovoltaic solar panels on its manufacturing unit with a maximum power of 295W with the capacity to produce 235,000 kWh of electricity per year from the sun. This installation allows the reduction of the environmental impact, avoiding the emission of 120 tons of CO2 per year.
In addition, all the lighting in the company is controlled by a control system that enables the use of presence and luminosity sensors in order to vary the intensity of the artificial light of the luminaires according to the reading of the incoming natural light, thus increasing energy savings that are reflected in a decrease in consumption of 40% per year.
