Tele2 Sweden said that in the year since it began switching off 4G base station amplifiers when they are not being used by customers, it has saved over 2.3 million kWh in electricity. The operator said this corresponds to the electricity that a BMW i3 car would need to drive around the world 380 times. Tele2 is now looking at other changes it could make to its grids that might contribute to large energy savings, for greater sustainability.
