PUTRAJAYA: Switching to energy-saving light bulbs could just be the remedy for the Government's massive annual electricity bill.
Energy, Green Technology and Water Minister Datuk Seri Peter Chin Fah Kui said his officers are currently working on a plan to convert all light bulbs in Government buildings to energy-saving bulbs.
“The Government spends RM2.7bil a year on energy costs, and this does not include the electricity bill for statutory bodies.
“If we were to convert all the light bulbs to LED (light emitting diode) bulbs, we estimate that the Government can save at least RM800mil across the board,” he said at a press conference after his ministry's monthly meeting here.
