Valdosta - The City of Valdosta is asking everyone to turn out for Earth hour.

The city is partnering with over 20 other cities around the country to conserve energy.

Mayor John Fretti is asking everyone to turn off all non-essential lights between 8:00 and 9:00 PM on Saturday March 29th.

He says the city will also ensure that all small appliances and computers are turned off as well.

He says those simple tasks will help alleviate energy demands, even if for just that small amount of time.

Mayor Fretti hopes it will also encourage people to find new ways to Go Green.
