Earth Hour: Bangkok to switch off lights for one hour on Saturday

Bangkok will turn off the lights at several streets across the city.

#Bangkok officials have urged residents to switch the lights off at their homes for one hour on Saturday night to join the Earth Hour movement which promotes sustainability.


The Earth Hour, which was started by WWF and is held across 7,000 cities each year, will take place between 8:30pm - 9:30pm on Saturday night. 


During this hour, people are encouraged to switch off non-essential lights as a symbol of their commitment to the planet and to a sustainable world.


Bangkok will also hit the off switch at several streets across the city including Silom, Khaosan, Ratchadaphisek, and Yaowarat. 


Wat Phra Kaew, Wat Arun, The Giant Swing and Rama VIII bridge will also go through a blackout.


Last year Bangkok saved 1,940 megawatts of electricity during the Earth Hour, which accounted for nine percent of the total electricity saved, Naewna reported.
