Earth Hour takes place this Saturday, March 31 from 8:30 to 9:30pm in local time zones. Participation in the global event has grown by millions since Earth Hour was first held in Australia back in 2007.
With a focus on positioning energy efficient technologies in global markets, I’m proud to join the celebration again this year and equally proud to help promote the “go beyond the hour to do more for the planet all year long” message that the World Wildlife Fund established in 2011.
One of the easiest ways to go beyond the hour to reduce energy consumption at home and at work is by turning your laptop and PC power management on. It’s a set-it-and-forget-it step that could save you up to $60 a year in energy costs for every computer using power management and is an easy way to do more for the planet all year long.
