In the coming month, we will go to chit chat with the public in Citywalk 2, Tsuen Wan (6 - 12 September) & Dragon Centre, Shamshuipo (24- 26 September). Apart from information sharing on energy saving tips, we will keep extending public engagement to download apps and play interactive games to learn the merits of Smart Energy Saving.
