A great idea from a green museum

756%2F785%2FCharlecote_housefrompark_thumb_460x0Charlecote Park are planning a big ‘switch it off’ morning where they turn off all electrical items to see what their overnight energy baseline should be.  At the moment energy use fluctuates at all different times of the day and night and they’re not sure what it should be. Carrying out this exercise should help the property to be more active in turning off equipment and also see where they could make energy savings. This will also involve almost all members of the team so everyone is in the know. We look forward to hearing how the switch off goes!

UPDATE September 6th

Look how well they did
