City aims to save 10% of both electricity and water by 2020

Alan Winde, MEC of Economic Opportunities, City of Cape Town, says they would like to see every citizen get into a habit of saving water and electricity. The goal is to save 10% by 2020.

The city has implemented increasingly stringent restrictions that will see the reduction in consumption of the two.

Winde says the City is happy that some of the businesses in Cape Town have started working on strategies to save water by installing grey water systems as well as save electricity by installing solar panels.

Make sure the lights are out when you not in the room. It is those little things that counts as well as make a difference.
