Vancouver Island Earth Hour Results.

Nanaimo, Courtenay and Campbell River all saw an INCREASE in power usage during March 28th 8:30-9:30 annual Earth Hour.

Earth hour started as an online global effort to reduce power consumption and raise general awareness for climate change.

The provincial champion was Sooke (4.8%) and Parksville was close behind with a 4.1% reduction.

Needless to say, I think it's something to get people thinking. Thinking about their habits, their consumption, their needs/wants. It's not going to directly affect everyone on the same level, but every little bit helps.
