Earth Hour takes place this Saturday, March 26th, 2022, at 8:30pm.

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 about 1,900 homes.

Earth Hour is a global initiative initiated 15 years ago by the World Wildlife Fund. 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 city says there are many ways that you can celebrate Earth Hour. Grab your family and friends and take a walk outdoors with flashlights, enjoy dinner by candlelight or just sit outside on your deck or porch and enjoy the stars.
