Flick the switch for Earth Hour

VICTORIA – British Columbians from throughout the province will be turning off lights and powering down electronics on Saturday, March 19, 2016, between 8:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. during Earth Hour 2016.

Earth Hour is a global event encouraging people to conserve energy by turning off lights and electronics to show their support for climate change action.

Last year’s Earth Hour resulted in 15 megawatt hours of electricity saved, reducing the overall provincial electricity load by 0.2% – the equivalent of turning off almost 680,000 LED light bulbs. Whistler and Invermere had the highest reductions in energy in B.C. during the lights off event, at 7.2% and 6.7% respectively.

This year, BC Hydro customers can use their online MyHydro accounts on bchydro.com and compare their electricity use during Earth Hour on Saturday to a previous day, to see if turning off unnecessary lights and electronics makes a difference in their household electricity consumption.
