Air-conditioning accounts for 60 per cent of all electricity use in Hong Kong between July and August. Over the course of a year, it accounts for 30 per cent of all electricity use city-wide.

Since 2010,  over 80,000 households joined in and turned off their air conditioning.

All Hongkongers are invited to switch off their air-cons this Friday, September 29 – from 7pm to 7am the next day.

A moon-gazing launch event will be held this Friday at 6:30pm at the Central & Western District Promenade, Central Section (near Tamar Park).

Hong Kong Free Press is a new, non-profit, English-language news source seeking to unite critical voices on local and national affairs. Free of charge and completely independent, HKFP arrives amid rising concerns over declining press freedom in Hong Kong and during an important time in the city’s constitutional development.
