Earth Hour

 Earth Hour Banner 2017

Our Commitment:

During Earth Hour 2017, East Gwillimbury staff are committing to shut-down or scale back on all non-essential building systems and lighting. Staff will ensure that recreational activities and rental permits are not affected. Conservation efforts include:

  • Scaling back arena ice plant operations
  • Shutting down/scaling back all HVAC units in areas that are not occupied
  • Turning off lights within facilities and rooms that are not in use

How you can participate:

Residents and businesses are encouraged to turn off their lights and unplug non-essential appliances during Earth Hour. Residents can show further support by conserving energy every day at home and/or at work.
