Cambridge-based Energy+ is once again challenging its 65,000 customers to take part in Earth Hour. President and CEO Ian Miles says “Earth Hour is a symbolic reminder of the power of conservation, but it’s no substitute for adopting proactive, energy saving habits, every hour of the day, every day of the year.” That is why he is urging residents in Cambridge, North Dumfries and Brant County to power down, turn off lights and reduce energy usage between 8:30 and 9:30 Saturday night.
Every year millions of people, businesses and landmarks set aside an hour to host events, switch off their lights and make noise for the Earth Hour movement. If you want to celebrate Earth Hour, you can, any way you want. Want to keep it simple? You could host a candle-lit dinner, go stargazing, or simply switch off your lights for an hour. Thinking of going a little bigger? You could put on a gig or concert, screen a movie, or host an Earth Hour party! The possibilities are endless. How ever you wish to celebrate and mark Earth Hour they invite you to #Connect2Earth. Find more information about Earth Hour at their website.
One of the ways Earth Hour will be marked in Ontario is that the falls at Niagara Falls will go dark during Earth Hour.
