Empower campaigns to rationalise district cooling consumption

The Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower) has launched a consumption rationalisation campaign under the theme ‘Set your AC at 24 C Auto and Save’.

The campaign will run until the end of summer and aims to encourage customers to rationalise the district cooling consumption during the summer season by setting the air-conditioner thermostat at 24 C, as well as using eco-friendly methods that help in reducing indoor temperature and monthly costs, and achieving significant savings in energy and resources.

The campaign targets all customer segments across residential and commercial buildings that are provided with company's district cooling services, according to state-run news agency, Wam.

The firm is keen to launch such campaigns regularly to raise awareness and enhance engagement with more than 120,000 customers, who play a key role to achieving sustainable development.
