Interest grows in zero emission points

On July 4, Governor Koike visited Bic Camera’s main store in Ikebukuro (Toshima City, Tokyo) to see the air conditioner and lighting equipment sales area.
After the visit, she said, “The things that use the most electricity in homes are air conditioners, refrigerators, and lighting fixtures. They are all eligible for Zero-Emi Points (Zero Emission Points) granted by the TMG to support purchases, and they now apply to LED lighting as well. LEDs have a long life, use less power, and conserves electricity. This corresponds to the savings aspect in the HTT movement, where we are encouraging Tokyo residents to save, generate, and store. I hope that everyone will cooperate.”
Kazuyoshi Kimura, president and representative director at Bic Camera, said, “Now that electricity prices have noticeably increased, interest in energy conservation and zero-emissions is growing. Although only high-end models of air conditioners were eligible for the points until now, the expansion of the scope to include models that are often purchased by ordinary customers has had a very significant impact.”
