About De-Light Pittsburgh

“De-Light Pittsburgh” is a year-long initiative designed to inspire a city-wide focus on energy efficiency while encouraging energy consciousness and ecological conservation to citizens. This innovative program will kick-off during the internationally-recognized Earth Hour 2015, which is Saturday, March 28th, 2015 from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m.

What is Earth Hour?

Led by the Pittsburgh 2030 District participants, the Office of Mayor William Peduto, the City of Pittsburgh, Green Building Alliance, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, the Amateur Astronomers Association of Pittsburgh (AAAP), and the Green Workplace Challenge are partnering to engage Downtown and Oakland property owners and individuals in Earth Hour 2015. Property owners and managers are encouraged to participate by arranging to turn off rooftop signage and other non-essential indoor and exterior lighting in their facilities for one (1) hour on Saturday, March 28th from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. – and to join us at the Carnegie Science Center for the evening’s celebration.
