City Encourages Energy Efficiency for Earth Hour

This Saturday evening, Victoria will join cities around the world to raise awareness about climate change and energy conservation. The City of Victoria is participating in Earth Hour, a global initiative organized by the World Wildlife Fund, to demonstrate what is possible when individuals take action on global warming.

On Saturday, March 23, 2013 from 8:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m., in addition to normal energy saving practices, staff will be turning off, or down, as many lights at City Hall and at the Crystal Pool, as safely possible.

The City of Victoria is working towards the goal of becoming carbon neutral in municipal operationsn by reducing energy use and greenhouse gas emissions through: smarter buildings, greening the fleet, using less energy in street and traffic lights, and reducing waste sent to the landfill.
