Earth Hour 2014
Participate in Earth Hour 2014
Earth Hour takes place on Saturday, March 29, 2014 from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. 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 by turning out their lights.
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 Comox, Courtenay, North Sannich, Sidney and Qualicum, the communities which saved the biggest percentage of electricity on March 23, 2013, B.C. saved 136 megawatt hours of electricity. See how communities across B.C. fared in Earth Hour 2013.
