Earth Hour

Consultation has concluded

Earth Hour is on Saturday, March 30 from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. We are powering down all non-essential lighting and electronics at City Hall and Market Square to raise awareness about climate change and encourage others to take action.

Residents are encouraged to switch off lights, power down electronics and unplug chargers from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. March 30. Tell us how you will be participating in Earth Hour for a chance to win one of three Earth Hour prize packs:

  • reusable bag
  • water bottle
  • reusable straw
  • dog bag dispenser

Three winners will be randomly chosen from all submissions.

Earth Hour doesn't have to only be a once-a-year thing. There are many things you can do everyday to take action against climate change. Making small changes, such as switching off lights when we leave a room, unplugging devices when not being used, using cold water for laundry, and turning down the thermostat a degree or two, can make a big impact for our planet.

    Congratulations Tasha, Susitieng, and Alberta5: You’ve been selected to receive our Earth Hour prize pack. We will email you with more details. Thank you to everyone who joined in the fun on EngageSTC.ca and who powered down for Earth Hour on Saturday, March 28.

    Making small changes, like switching lights when you leave a room, using more energy efficient appliances and uplugging devices when not in use, can have a big impact. Alectra Utilities reports that in 2018, St. Catharines reduced energy use by 14,497,387 kWh. That’s enough energy to power 1,611 homes for a year.
