If you want to know what Dial4Light is and aren’t clever enough to dissect the title I will fill you in. Dial4Light is probably the smartest idea I have heard in awhile. And I hear a lot of ideas.

Dial4Light is a service aimed at cutting energy costs in small and rural towns. Citizens of these towns have to make a phone call to Dial4Light if they want to ward off vampires/killers/scary people/darkness and turn the lights on.

So far Dial4Light has been saving money in the small German towns that it has been installed in. For more info on Dial4Light read the excerpt below or follow the link.
