Earth Hour may cause power surge...

...if TNB isn't prepared, endangering the national grid and severely damage many generators.

earth hour

In 1999, a short solar eclipse hit the UK. naturally everybody would turn off the lights to observe the rarely occurring phenomenon. Sudden drop in power demand was promptly handled.

But as soon as the sun reappeared, demand increased rapidly as people resumed normal life, causing the most significant power surge in the UK thus far.

Lets hope every utility providers in the world has foreseen this and be fully prepared.

Hooray for Earth Hour!!
