Q: What are the procedures being set to ensure the Contest is open and fair?

A: To ensure the Contest is open and fair, the Organizer shall randomly request the participants to provide copies of their electricity bill/ metering record for verification and will conduct site visits to all winning candidates. In case of any false information found, the Organizer will immediately terminate the participant’s enrolment. The participant will no longer be eligible for any awards or prizes.

Q: Why register online?

A: During the contest, participants can easily log in the system to input the relevant electricity consumption data and to review their consumption trend at their own pace. The system will regularly send out emails to remind participants to key in utility bill data, as well as sharing energy saving tips suggested by other participants.

Q: What do Organization and Property Management participants need for registration?

A: You only need the electricity bills from July to September 2014 and for the same period in 2015. For those who had lost their 2014 bills, please call "CLP INFO-LINE" at 2678-2678, or "Customer Account Enquiries for HEC" at 2887-3411 for a copy.

Q: My school electricity bill for October will arrive after the Contest cut off date on November 15. How do I enter the electricity consumption data for 2015 ?

A: Please ask your colleague to record the electricity meter reading on the 30 September afternoon and take another reading on 31 October. The difference of the 2 readings is the electricity consumption for October. If your school has already installed the smart meter, the monthly electricity consumption data is available online.

Q: Q: How to enter the school’s electricity consumption data for October 2014?

A: You will need the electricity bill copy for the period of September- October and October – November. The system will automatically calculate the consumption for October 2014 based on the entries for the 2 bills.

Q: Is the Household Category still available this year?

A: This year, we are diverting our resources and efforts to educate the younger generations in enhancing their awareness on energy saving to protect our environment. Thus a new participating category for “School” is introduced to replace the “Household” category.

Q: Power Smart is a very meaningful programme. Are there any other ways my family can participate?

A: Thank you for your support. You can register via the “Property Management” Category. An e-certificate will be sent to you as recognition if your saving exceeds 2% as compared to the same period last year. However, your participation would not qualify you to compete for any awards under the category. For enquiry about the input details, please contact us at 2528 5588.
