Once again this year Yukon Energy is participating in Earth Hour. It's an opportunity to see just how much we as Yukoners can reduce our electricity usage between 8:30 and 9:30 p.m. on Sarturday March 31st. We'll measure the results and share them with you.
Last year during Earth Hour, Yukoners reduced power consumption by about one megawatt. Let's see if we can do even better this year. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Go to our Facebook page and tell us what you'll be doing for Earth Hour, and your name will be entered in a draw for a selection of energy-saving devices, courtesy of the Yuon government's Energy Solutions Centre, the Yukon Conservation Society and Yukon Energy.
But remember...Earth Hour isn't just a one night stand! It's about taking action to reduce energy use year round.
