Charlotte turns lights off for Earth Hour
Posted on 24 Mar 2009 by Matthew Tyndall
“Parts of Charlotte’s skyline will go dark Saturday night as the city joins 2,100 others in a global statement for action on climate change.
Earth Hour asks people to turn off the lights for an hour – but save energy all the time.
At 8:30 p.m. Saturday, nonessential lights will be doused at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center, the Education Center, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police headquarters, Duke Energy and at least some uptown towers, including Gateway Village, Charlotte Plaza and the Carillon.”
