EARTH HOUR

Don't forget earth hour 8:30pm - 9:30pm

Bangkok’s key landmarks, namely the Grand Palace, the Temple of Dawn, the Giant Swing, and the Rama IX bridge will be participating in the Earth Hour event by turning their lighting off during the announced time as well.

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.

The Earth Hour activity last year resulted in an electrical usage reduction in Bangkok by 1,768 megawatts, equivalent to the reduction of 947 tons of carbon dioxide. The energy production drop helped save up to 6.76 million baht in electrical costs.

Our actions today will decide what tomorrow will bring

If you pass by my house tonight and still see those lights on, please don't accuse me of wasting energy. Those lights have been burning every night and all night long since about two years, fairly bright with 16 LEDs,  and have not used any power from the grid; they're solar powered with the cells on top, recharging three AA size batteries during the daytime, at dusk they turn on automatically and off again at dawn for their daily recharge. I'm very happy with those. Have cost about USD 20 for each, sent to me from China.

Earth Hour today March 25th

Well that come round quick, the rolling years, don't forget today is Earth Hour. You can do your bit and help for
one hour starting at 8.30pm. The campaign has been running in Thailand since 2008.

Good to see 7,000 cities in 187 countries worldwide taking part. A chance for you to show that you care about the future of our planet.

Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney when 2.2 million individuals and more than 2,000 businesses turned their lights off for one hour to take a stand against climate change.

Bangkok to join “Earth Hour 2018” this Saturday

 Thai people are invited to join others in 7,000 cities in 178 nations across the world to turn off lights for an hour this Saturday to mark Earth Hour 2018, the biggest global environmental event to draw attention to global warming.

Participation in the one-hour event running from 8.30pm to 9.30pm is considered an exercise in raising awareness of climate change and the need for environmental protection.

 Bangkok Metropolitan Administration recently announced that it has prepared six major landmarks to enable the lights to be turned off – the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, the Grand Palace, the Temple of Dawn, the Giant Swing, the Rama 8 Bridge, and the Golden Mound.

All government buildings are asked to join with the private sector, communities and individuals in participating in the event.

This year is Bangkok’s 11th year participating.

It is estimated that the capital could save up to 1,953 megawatts of electricity – the equivalent of reducing 1,016 tonnes of CO2 emissions to the environment, representing a saving of up to Bt7,680,000.
