Oakville Participates in Earth Hour
(Oakville, ON) March 28, 2022 – Oakville Hydro reports that during Earth Hour the Town of Oakville saved approximately 16.2 MWh, which is equivalent to turning off about 1,080,000 15-watt light bulbs for one hour.
“The values and importance of Earth Hour extend far beyond one hour on one evening,” said Scott Mudie, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Conservation Officer of Oakville Hydro. “The initiative reminds us of the critical need to combat climate change and look for ways to save energy each and every day. The theme of Earth Hour 2022 is that together, we can shape our future. The community’s continued support and conservation efforts proves that we are collectively working towards creating a more sustainable future.”
