Philippines Shines Brightest in Earth's Darkest Hour.

Last March 28, 2009 at 8:30pm was Earth Hour where everyone was advised to turn off the lights for 1 whole hour to show support for energy conservation.

And guess what? Philippines Shines Brightest in Earth's Darkest Hour. According to http://wwf.org.ph, the Philippines saved 611 MWh of power during the Earth Hour 2009.

When the clock struck 8:30 on Saturday night, the 28th of March, over 15 million Filipinos in 650 major cities and towns switched off lights for 60 minutes to join the world in celebrating Earth Hour – an initiative of WWF, the Department of Energy, Green Army Network and SWITCH movement. Organizers are jubilant at the sheer scale and success of the movement nationwide.

The Philippines beat all countries with its 650 cities participating with Greece and Australia placing at 2nd and 3rd place respectively. The power saved by the Philippines during the voluntary power off was equivalent to shutting down a dozen power plants for one hour.
