Turn Out the Lights and Celebrate the Earth!

Montgomery County will join the worldwide “Earth Hour” celebration on Saturday, March 29 from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. by turning out most lights in the largest of its downtown Rockville government buildings. Residents, schools, businesses, community groups and organizations are urged to join the County in supporting Earth Hour to make a statement about reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
 “One person turning out their lights for one hour is a small gesture, but millions of people around the world participating makes a powerful statement about our ability to reduce energy use and take action to address global warming,” said Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett. “We can be part of the collective solution, not only on March 29, but also every day by taking simple steps to cut our greenhouse gas emissions on an ongoing basis.”
