What could be done to make summer mall functioning as green high mall in educating and promoting green environment to the general public?

There are different aspects need to be considered in order to save more energy such as lighting, heating applications, ventilation and air conditioning system and water pumping.

1. Lighting

Not only that, microwaves should not kept in the idle mode. This is because it consume 10% of the rated power. It is highly recommended to switch off if not in use.
