What better a time to brush up on our energy conservation skills than when we are heading fast into winter. In the spirit of conservation, Light's Out SF is inviting everyone in San Francisco to turn out all their lights between 8 pm and 9 pm next Saturday, October 20. The organization estimates that this action could save 15% of the energy that is used in San Francisco on an average Saturday night.
The upcoming event was inspired by Earth Hour in Sydney Australia in which 2.2 million people participated. San Francisco Lights Out organizers are hoping for similar success. Thus far, the Bay Bridge, the Golden Gate Bridge and the TransAmerica Building have jumped on board. Lights Out SF will be hosting a party featuring live music in Dolores Park on the evening of the event between 5:30 and 9:30.
