Aside from campaign ambassador Chi Thien and fellow company member Bang Di, spotted amongst the crowd of thousands who switched off their lights to go kindle a flame at the City’s square instead, were singer Lam Truong and beauty queen Huong Giang.
With so much public involvement, the campaign turned out extremely successful. Even the unexpected downpour did not keep supporters from wanting to stay.
According to EVN (Energy Viet Nam), approximately 500,000 kWh of electricity was conserved in that one single hour while Saigon, alone, accounted for 67.000kWh. Compared to last year’s campaign which conserved 140,000 kWh, this year’s result is certainly a huge feat.
