Residents Invited to Celebrate Earth Hour

Once again, Windsor residents will join millions of people worldwide to celebrate Earth Hour, Saturday, March 26, 2022, at 8:30 p.m.

Since 2010, the City of Windsor has celebrated Earth Hour by turning off all non-essential lighting at City facilities. In previous years, Windsor residents have decreased consumption by up to 2.3% during Earth Hour. This represents approximately 6 megawatts or enough power to serve approximately 1,900 homes.

There are many ways that you can celebrate Earth Hour. Grab your family and friends and take a walk outdoors with flashlights, enjoy a dinner by candle light or just sit outside on your deck or porch and enjoy the stars.

Earth Hour is a global initiative initiated 15 years ago by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). It takes place on the last Saturday of March – closely coinciding with the equinox to ensure most cities are in darkness as it rolls out around the Earth.

The underlining purpose of “Earth Hour” is to send a powerful national and global message that it is possible to take action on climate change and that individual actions do make a difference.
