Earth Hour 2013
Go beyond the hour with Power Smart
Earth Hour, an annual global event hosted by the World Wildlife Fund and supported provincially by BC Hydro, encourages individuals to show their support for the fight against climate change. This year, Earth Hour is on Saturday, March 23 from 8:30-9:30 p.m.
BC Hydro supports Earth Hour
Earth Hour, and BC Hydro, are asking you to use this event as motivation to make plans and take action to reduce energy use year round.
During last year’s Earth Hour, B.C. got off to a good start. Led by Revelstoke, the community which saved the biggest percentage of electricity on March 31, 2012, B.C. saved 12 megawatt hours of electricity. See how communities across B.C. fared in Earth Hour 2012.
