Earth Hour in Whistler

8:30 - 9:30 PM on March 19, 2016

Whistler, it's time to power down. This Earth Hour, residents, visitors and businesses are encouraged to turn off non-essential lights and appliances. During Earth Hour 2015, Whistler was number 1 in the province for energy savings, reducing electrical power consumption by six per cent: the highest savings of all 69 communities registered in BC. You can help keep Whistler on the top spot of BC’s Earth Hour podium in 2016! Can we do better this year?
