Earth Hour

From the NS Power Website:

Lights Out on March 29 for Earth Hour

Saturday, March 29 is Earth Hour -- Saturday, March 29 is Earth Hour. At 8:00 pm, millions of people and organizations around the globe will turn off their unnecessary lights for one hour to help save electricity and the environment. NS Power encourages all residents and organizations to support the WWF's global initiative and turn off their lights for one hour on March 29 from 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Earth Hour is a WWF initiative created to raise awareness about climate change. Last year, WWF-Australia pioneered Earth Hour and it was a huge success . More than 2 million people and 2,100 businesses participated , resulting in a 10% reduction on the electrical grid, saving 25,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide – the equivalent of taking about 50,000 cars off the road for an hour. In 2008, Earth Hour will be taking place in over 20 cities around the world. Nova Scotian residents and businesses are encouraged to show their support for electricity conservation by switching unnecessary lights off for the hour.
