Earth Hour observed across the world gives way to dimming - By Lutron

This year Earth Hour ‘I Will If You Will’ campaign to turn off lights for an hour has been adopted by majority of people including celebrities, government offices, commercials, corporates, eateries and industrial establishments across the world.

Earth Hour has completed a record journey across more than 6,525 cities, towns and municipalities in 150 countries and territories and this year it is considered as the biggest participation growth for the largest voluntary action for the environment since 2007.

Manjul Trehan, Director-Sales(Indian subcontinent) Lutron said, “As energy saving has become a global concern, this year Earth Hour organised by World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) supported by us has encouraged many participants to go for dimming for the rest 364 days to save energy for the environment. We are getting many enquiries from the residential and commercial industry for energy efficiency products such as dimmers, automated shades and occupancy sensors etc.”

Dimming the light by 25 percent saves 20% of electricity and extends light bulb life by 4 times. Dimming by 50% saves 40% of electricity and makes your light bulb last 20 times longer. History of dimming was rewritten in 1960, when Founder of Lutron, Joel Spira invented the first ever energy-saving electronic dimmer. Before that, dimming was done with bulky rheostat dimmers which could only dim by transforming electricity into heat without saving any energy at all.

People are deeply conscious of the growing concerns and are taking initiatives to support the Earth Hour and they are also opting for many other ways to save energy beyond earth hour.
