Lights Out Houston!

Houston is going dark Friday night at 10 PM to help save energy and go something good for our environment! Turning unused lights out is one of the easiest and most effective ways to save energy!

Houston leaders are asking commercial property owners and their tenants to turn off lights in unoccupied offices beginning at 10 p.m. Friday in an effort to raise awareness about energy conservation.

Dozens of Houston businesses, including those downtown, have pledged to participate in what organizers hope will become an annual event.

Suggestion to participants...HOW ABOUT YOU DO THIS EVERY NIGHT?!?!

Do you know that earlier this year when some of the world's largest cities turned their lights out for 1 hour Chicago alone saved enough of a footprint on the environment to have taken 1 million cars off of the road for one hour?? Now really, knowing that, is it that difficult to turn off a couple of switches every evening?
