Answer: Paris, the "City of Light"
Paris has long been a leader when it comes to public lighting, but this year the city may change that, according to Fast Company.
Delphine Batho, head of the Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development, and Energy, has submitted a proposal that "would require stores, offices and public buildings across the country to turn off the lights between 1 a.m. and 7 a.m.," Fast Company reported.
The point of the policy, Batho said, is to save energy and money -- and “to change the culture” in a time of economic crisis. It's to make people aware of the importance of using energy resources efficiently.
