How much energy could the Romanians save during Earth Hour?

If all the households in Romania turned off the lights for an hour during the Earth Hour movement, they would save enough energy to ensure the electricity consumption of a regional hospital for a year, according to estimations made by electricity distributor E.On.

“The amount of energy that the households in Romania could save during Earth Hour would be sufficient, for example, to ensure the electricity consumption of a regional hospital for a whole year, or to keep the public lightning in a city with 300,000 inhabitants functioning for three months, or to permanently keep a LED bulb on for 32,000 years,” reads the statement from E.On.

Hypothetically, if all the households in Romania turned off the lights and disconnected all the electronic devices for an hour during Earth Hour, they would save an estimated 1.4 million kilowatt-hours of energy, which corresponds to about 400 tons of CO2 emissions.

Romania once again joined Earth Hour in 2017. Thus, on March 25, the individuals, cultural organizations, public institutions, and companies in Romania switched off the electricity between 20:30 and 21:30, local time.

Several events were organized in major cities in Romania to mark this movement, including Bucharest, Sighisoara, Roman, Constanta, Brasov, Oradea, and Barlad. In Bucharest, a bike tour was organized on the route Izvor Park-B.P. Hasdeu street-Splaiul Independentei-Stirbei Voda-Berzei-Calea Grivitei-Dacia-Romana Square-Univeristate Square-Unirii Square-Splaiul Independentei-Natiunile Unite-Izvor Park. Find out more here.
