As a part of the efforts to conserve energy, Delhi will be joining this league of cities & over a billion people all over the world to observe the Earth Hour on March 25.
In the previous year, Delhi ended up saving 229 Mega Watts of power during the Earth Hour, in spite of the fact that this hour coincided with an India-Pakistan match. Which is actually a great thing, given the fact that it is an entirely different environment in here when these two countries are facing each other in any form of sports. In 2015, the capital city had saved around 200MW of power.
"Earth Hour aims to shine the light on climate change. The call for action for Earth Hour 2017 in India is 'I am an Earth Hour Super Hero. Are you?' It urges residents to take up the challenge by 'Switching Off and Switching onto Solar Energy'," read a BSES statement.
All you need to do is turn off electronic appliances and non-essential lights on 25 March, if you want to be a part of this massive movement. An effort, as small as it may seem, is enough to raise awareness on climate change and energy conservation.
