Forum: Earth Hour

Please join our discussion below to tell us why you feel Earth Hour is important what you did this year to participate

On Saturday, March 29 the City of Saskatoon joined others from across Saskatoon and around the world to take part in Earth Hour, a global event to acknowledge the importance of environmental awareness and action, during and beyond the hour.

Our collective efforts raise awareness of climate change and promote actions that conserve energy and help reduce GHG emissions. Celebrating and acknowledging these efforts is part of creating a more sustainable Saskatoon.

Thank you for participating!

Credit Union Centre will be participating in Earth Hour by turing off all non essential lights and equipment. The most important being the Refrigeration Plant. An ice skating facility consumes a great deal of electrical energy during its normal operation. A typical community arena can consume between 600,000 and 2,000,000 kWh of electricity per year depending on the location, facility construction and operating profile. When you add demand charges and peak-load penalties to this, the costs can skyrocket. Energy is the second-highest cost of operation, exceeded only by labour, in a typical ice facility.
