Cut at least 10 per cent of monthly household electricity use and stand a chance to win vouchers.

That was one of the ways student volunteers tried to encourage 6,000 Nee Soon Central residents to save electricity on Saturday morning.

The 1,450 students involved combed 75 blocks to give out flyers to residents and offer tips on saving electricity and water to cut utility bills and conserve the environment.

They were joined by Associate Professor Muhammad Faishal Ibrahim, Parliamentary Secretary for Health and Transport, who is also a Member of Parliament for Nee Soon GRC.
