If every household in Québec turned off an outdoor light that normally stays on all night (from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m., for example) for one year, the resulting collective impact would make it possible to light approximately 720,000 homes for an entire year. That’s every home in Montréal.

We all have electronics that we rarely use and could unplug. If every household in Québec unplugged just one rarely used device for one year (e.g. VCR), the resulting collective impact would provide enough electricity to meet the power needs of city of Québec residents for about 12 days.Learn more about phantom loads
