Over 5,500 residential units at Schofield Barracks and 2,000 at Hickam Air Force Base in Honolulu, Hawaii will go dark Saturday night. Both bases will sponsor family movie nights with projectors powered by photovoltaic cells. The Mayor said Earth Hour was a time for people to realize they can work together to make a difference.
Implications - Earth Hour is an initiative meant to spread the word of environmentalism; participants go without electricity for 60 minutes. Government agencies and other organizations are increasingly getting in on the act to demonstrate their corporate responsibility. By adopting eco-friendly power generators during Earth Hour, these public buildings can stay productive and send a message to fellow citizens.
