San Francisco’s lights will be going out on October 20 and Lights Out America is promoting a nationwide blackout on March 29, 2008.
Lights Out San Francisco is a citywide energy conservation event on October 20, 2007. On this night, we invite the entire city of San Francisco to turn off all non-essential lighting for one hour. To promote long-lasting energy saving, we plan to distribute free compact fluorescent light bulbs throughout the city.
You may ask: what good does one hour and one light bulb do? What do we hope to accomplish?
