Hey, school participants!  The ComEd Earth Month Challenge doesn't officially begin until Sunday, April 1st, but this Saturday, March 31st, would make a great practice day to help get your family into the "energy saving mood."

As part of a global energy efficiency awareness movement, ComEd is partnering with the City of Chicago and the World Wildlife Fund to celebrate Earth Hour, encouraging individuals, businesses and government entities to reduce energy consumption by turning off non-essential lights for one hour.

Now in its fifth year, Earth Hour demonstrates the impact each person can have on environmental solutions to climate change.   All of ComEd's employees are being encouraged to join this effort and to turn off their lights for one hour at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 31. During this time, Fidel Marquez, senior vice president of Governmental and External Affairs and chief governmental and community affairs officer, ComEd, will join City of Chicago officials, Illinois Rep. Sara Feigenholz and other community leaders for a ceremonial Earth Hour Illinois “lights out” event at the Wrigley Field marquee!!

Earth Hour involves more than 5,200 participating cities, reaching 1.8 billion people in 135 countries across the seven continents.  For more information about Earth Hour and tips for participating, visit www.EarthHour.org.
