The “Energy Capital of the World” will continue its sustained commitment to become the “Energy Conservation Capital” by turning off non-essential lights from April 25 to April 28, 2013. LightsOut Houston started in 2008 as a city-wide commitment to energy efficiency by commercial building owners and their tenants. The goal of the program has expanded to establish a sustained reduction in the use of non-essential electricity by all buildings throughout the Greater Houston area. Participants are asked to sign a pledge of their commitment to energy conservation.
