With all the lights and main appliances off, you can measure the consumption of your always-on appliances, those constantly plugged on even when there is no one at home. For example, freezer/fridge and TV sets that stay in standby mode.

The Metro newspapers published some suggestions of things to do in the Earth Hour:

  1. Have a bonfire
  2. Go stargazing – the Forestry Commission is organising loads of public events 
  3. Go on a night cycle – like the one being organised by Bike London
  4. Try cook something – like this ‘Earth Hour’ paella recipe by Great British Bake Off’s Flora Shedden
  5. Make your own candle lanterns

Indeed, Earth Hour is a great opportunity to measure standby and always on appliances! But the main idea of the campaign is awareness, it a symbolic action representing commitment to rethink our actions towards reducing footprint and protecting the natural environment. See earthhour.org
