We all want to help save power - except for skiing


We are prepared to make some sacrifices this winter to help save energy – including working on Sundays. But we’re not prepared to stop skiing.

A survey by the Tribune de Genève and the 24 Hours newspaper showed the strongest support for switching off illuminated advertising during the night – 96% say yes. 

92% say they would cut their home temperature by one degree – a move which could save 5% nationally. 

46% say they would be prepared to work Sundays, to help even out distribution of power usage.

But when it comes to stopping ski lifts – 52% said no, they should keep running.
