Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower), the world's largest district cooling services provider, announced the launch of its annual summer campaign to rationalize cooling energy consumption under the theme 'Set & Save 24°C'. Launched earlier this month and continues until the end of the summer season, the campaign aims at fostering sustainable practices among its customers in order for the company to continue contributing to the green economy as the pioneer in providing environmentally friendly and world-class district cooling services, which uses up to 50% less energy compared to traditional cooling solutions.
This year's summer started early and with high temperatures. This may drive people to keep the air conditioner thermostat at a low temperature always, which results in a great waste of energy and ends with a high consumption bill, the Company said.
As part of the campaign, which is being organized for the eighth year in a row, Empower pointed out that it is keen to reach its more than 140,000 customers across the residential and commercial units that are being provided with the company's services.
"Rationalizing energy consumption should be a common focus for all of us, whether as a service provider or beneficiaries, because it is a sustainable practice that brings great and multiple benefits to the community and even to future generations", said Ahmad bin Shafar, CEO of Empower.
