Ho Chi Minh City aims to involve 100,000 local families in cutting the city's power expenses by 9 percent this year.

Huynh Kim Tuoc, director of HCMC Energy Conservation Center, said his center and HCMC Women Union would sign an agreement on the program this Saturday.

So far 87,000 families citywide have registered for the program, Tuoc said, adding that it was the city's first-ever large scale power saving initiative.

"HCMC families spend VND5.2 trillion (US$278.4 million) in total on power per year, so we will save a great deal of money if each family can cut 10 percent of their power expenses," he said.
