Thanks to all who made Earth Hour a success!
Oakville nearly doubled their Earth Hour energy savings compared to last year’s event. Oakville Hydro reported that during Earth Hour 2014 the demand for electricity in the Town of Oakville was reduced by 5.3 per cent (9.3 MWh) compared to 2.9 percent in 2013. That’s the equivalent of turning off about 155,000 60 watt light bulbs. Visit the Oakville residents shine and reduce energy use during Earth Hour news release page for more information.
