The resource spotlights the need to reduce electricity consumption, especially from fossil fuels, which has increased carbon concentration in the atmosphere and carbon footprint in schools. The activity is only necessary for schools that consume electricity from nonrenewable sources. It might cut down the electricity bill, but it can only produce that outcome. You could conduct this activity maybe 2-6 times at most during the school year. Taking averages, you would notice carbon footprint and electricity bill would reduce, but it will be negligible. This activity is important in a micro-scale. It should be supervised by an energy specialist/technician to avoid casualties (electrocution). However, this activity is not a sustainable and permanent solution. Transitioning to clean and renewable energy sources is the solution.
