Media Advisory - Electricity conservation programs help save money, electricity, & the environment



    Programs from the Ontario Power Authority provide Ontarians with the
    tools to save electricity and save money

    TORONTO, April 18 /CNW/ - On April 18th, the Ontario Power Authority will
unveil Ontario's 2007 summer Conservation and Demand Management programs to
help Ontarians save money, use electricity wisely, and help the environment.
    To inspire Ontarians to think about electricity generation and
conservation, the Ontario Power Authority has designed a Pedal Power set using
bike generators to show how much easier it is to conserve energy than generate
it. Students from Kipling Collegiate Institute, a Gold Eco School Award
winner, will be riding the bikes.
    Discover how much physical energy it takes to power everyday items, and
the significant difference between energy-efficient products and older less
efficient products.
