Daylight Hour is a national social media campaign aimed at reducing energy use, improving work environments, and saving money by encouraging offices to turn off nonessential lighting from noon to 1:00 p.m. (local time) on the Friday closest to summer solstice.

This year, the City is participating in the effort to reduce energy consumption. If you are in an office or area where you are able to work in natural light, please turn off your nonessential lights from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. today.  We want to show the community our commitment to the environment; take pictures of your office with the lights turned off while holding this sign.

Email or text the pictures to City’s Communication Coordinator at to share on the City’s social media pages.

#DaylightHour2019 may only be one day a year, but it is a powerful reminder to our staff about our commitment to sustainability. The City is proud to participate in this event.
