Isles of Scilly switch off day E day

The Department of Energy and Climate Change are supporting Energy Saving Day 2009, running between 3 and 6 October on the Isles of Scilly.
Tuesday 6 October, residents on the Isles of Scilly are asked to switch off all electrical items which don't need to be on, so that E-Day can measure a collective energy saving.

This is the first coordinated effort by a community to reduce their electricity use and to measure the effects of their efforts in real-time.

The energy savings achieved by a family, the school and the community on the Isles of Scilly will be compared with the baseline conditions across the UK. The results will show just how much energy could be saved if we all made a similar effort.

Ed Miliband, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change recorded a special video message in support of E-Day 2009. http://www.e-day.org.uk/
