Pledge “reducewatertemp”

"I will arrange to have my water heater's temperature turned down to 49 degrees celcius but only if 5 other Canadians will do the same."

— Mita Williams, of Windsor, Ontario

Deadline to sign up by: 1st September 2007

Country: Canada

More details
According to the Pembina Institute's One Less Tonne Challenge ( http://www.onelesstonne.ca/ ) the standard temperature setting for water heaters is usually around 60 degrees celsius. But 49 degrees celsius is sufficient for most homes' needs, and lowering the temperature reduces energy consumption and heating bills. Water heating accounts for 22% of the greenhouse gas emissions produced by an average Canadian home.

This pledge is now closed, as its deadline has passed.
