Earth Hour 2009 March 28th

This is a reminder that tonight Earth Hour invites one billion people in more than 2800 cities representing 83 countries to turn off their lights for one hour – tonight, Saturday, March 28 from 8:30pm to 9:30pm in their local time zone.

 

All you have to do to Vote Earth is turn your lights out for one hour tonight, Saturday, March 28 from 8:30pm to 9:30pm local time, in your city. Your light switch is your vote!

 

Earth Hour is about more than dimming lights for sixty minutes; it’s about making a commitment to reduce energy consumption throughout the year. 

So I got to thinking what ways can I help conserve energy that a normal person who is in a business can do below are a few tips to consider.

 

  • Turn off your office lights even if your broker/manager pays for it, its still a waste to keep it on.
  • Turn on your energy management on your computer which can result in saving hundreds each year.
  • Use long lasting light bulbs.  They may be a bit more expensive but they last longer than regular light bulbs which ultimately help save you money in the long run.
Whatever you do to help is great and I hope to see you join me in Earth Hour!!

I just heard about this on the radio - said Chicago was doing it - I was imagining it for a while if the whole city did his - street lights etc. ??  seems a bit hard to do completely.  However, I am going to make it a practice to turn my computer off when not using it - I ususally just close it and let it hybernate - heard on the news one day that turning it off would save a lot.

I just heard about this event a few minutes ago.  I am catching up online in the dark.  Does that count?  FWIW - My family thinks I am nuts for always shutting off lights.  Hey, I pay the bills and care about the environment...
