Bright Lights of Tinsel Town to Go Out for One Hour

"Earth Hour" Takes Place March 27 8:30 PM Local

One effective way to lowering utility bills is to simply not turn on an appliance when it isn't needed.

What about turning off your lights for only 1 hour. How much would that save you?

Earth Hour was created to increase public awareness of the impact of energy use on climate change. One article I read indicated that the city of Las Vegas will participate -- go dark from 8:30 to 9:30 local time -- to save energy and reduce carbon emissions. According to the article, the energy saved will be equal to 65 megawatts of electricity.

What do you think? I Earth Hour worth the bother?
