Uptown buildings to go dark for Earth Hour

Charlotte’s tallest high-rises will be among 36 uptown Charlotte buildings turning off their lights Saturday night to observe Earth Hour, a global sustainability campaign.

Duke Energy Center, One Wells Fargo, Bank of America Corporate Center and the Hearst Tower will douse all but safety lighting for one hour, starting at 8:30 p.m. Saturday. They will join buildings in 7,000 cities across the world, from the 88-story Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur to the Empire State Building.

Envision Charlotte, the uptown energy-efficiency initiative, will join Mecklenburg County, the City of Charlotte, major employers and uptown residential neighborhoods in participating. Bruce Henderson
