The Big Switch Off
What is the Big Switch Off?
The Big Switch Off is a campaign encouraging households, businesses, schools and community organisations across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland to switch off all unnecessary electrical appliances and lighting.
The campaign is taking place over the period of a week between the 11th and 17th October 2010 to help people save money, energy and the environment.
Whether at home, work, school or in your local community you can join in the campaign and switch off. For further information see:-

The campaign is delivered by Blaby District Council, Charnwood Borough Council, ENABLE, Harborough District Council, Hinckley and Bosworth District Council, Melton Borough Council, North West Leicestershire District Council, Oadby and Wigston Borough Council, Leicester City Council, Leicestershire County Council, and Rutland County Council as well as Groundwork Leicester and Leicestershire and Rural Community Council (Leicestershire and Rutland).
