South African electrical appliance producers will soon be compelled to disclose to consumers how much power their products use. This was said by Lulama Xingwana, the energy and minerals deputy minister, at the launching of Energy Efficiency month in Pretoria, South Africa. The campaign has been extended to a month this year, whereas the event was previously only a week long.

Energy Efficiency month sets out to highlight the importance of the efficient use of South Africa's limited energy resources. The aim is also to promote a culture of electricity saving by encouraging consumers using it more efficiently. Thulani Gxabashe, CEO of South African electric utility supplier Eskom, has urged consumers to adapt to new ways of using electricity by the use of compact fluorescent lamps and other gadgets to save energy and cost.

The government has taken the first step in the campaign by installing energy-efficient lights in its buildings. (SABC News)
