A single hour when we ask you to TURN IT OFF!


Daylight Hour is an annual social media campaign organized by the Building Energy Exchange to raise awareness about using natural daylight in lieu of electric lighting in offices. Launched in 2014, this simple and engaging campaign asks participating offices to turn off their lights in day-lit spaces for one hour on the Friday before the summer solstice.


Leading up to and during this hour, offices around the world share their involvement on social media, engaging their communities and showcasing their environmental commitment.
