STUDENTS from Emerald State High School received a lesson in conserving electricity with the performance of Unplugged, a joint production between Ergon Energy and The Queensland Arts Council.

As the amount of electrical gadgets owned by students continues to rise, this could have a significant impact on the home electricity bill.

Unplugged explored how students could conserve electricity and continue to live modern lifestyles.

The students were receptive and enjoyed the performance.

“It was in comedy but still taught us something,” one student said.

“One thing I learnt was when I’m watching television, I don’t need my laptop on and vice versa.”
