Air-conditioning accounts for 60 per cent of all electricity use in Hong Kong between July and August. Over the course of a year, it accounts for 30 per cent of all electricity use city-wide.

Since 2010,  over 80,000 households joined in and turned off their air conditioning.

All Hongkongers are invited to switch off their air-cons this Friday, September 29 – from 7pm to 7am the next day.

A moon-gazing launch event will be held this Friday at 6:30pm at the Central & Western District Promenade, Central Section (near Tamar Park).
