The Jakartan government announced that they have cut back their electricity and water use lately. The cutback was small, around 5 percent for electricity, but the concept is good. I’m not being sarcastic – the government has shown that under proper direction, they can actually manage to show that something as simple as cutting back electricity use is possible. A first step is always good. A great next step is to install simple light sensors on the street lighting, so that they turn off automatically in the day – and perhaps use solar power for the lights, so they are not dependant on the city’s electricity grid.Now, if the rest of us can do it as well…. here’s the rare occasion where I actually believe the government can do it and the general citizenry can’t. Or won’t. Or doesn’t care.Hm, did I leave the aircon on at home this morning?
