(Oakville, ON) March 27, 2017 – Oakville Hydro reports that during Earth Hour, the demand for electricity in the Town of Oakville was reduced by 3.65 per cent (6.2 MW). 

“Every year, Earth Hour is a reminder of the global importance of climate change and conservation,” said Rob Lister, President and CEO at Oakville Hydro.  “Once again, Oakville residents showed their support and commitment to saving energy and building a ‘green’ town through energy-wise decisions, both big and small.”

About Earth Hour

Earth Hour is a worldwide movement for the planet that the World Wildlife Fund (“WWF”) started in 2007 with a lights-off event in Sydney, Australia.  Since then, it has grown to engage more than 7,000 cities and towns worldwide, and the one-hour event continues to remain the key driver of the now larger movement of stopping climate change.  For more information on Earth Hour, visit www.earthhour.org
