Earth Hour is a short moment in time that inspires millions of people in 7 000 cities across 152 countries and territories – including South Africa – to switch off their lights for 60 minutes.
It is an act of global commitment to protecting planet earth beyond this symbolic hour.
“Earth Hour affords all electricity users an opportunity to realise that it is ‘in our power’ to save electricity and switch to more sustainable ways of living and doing business.
“Individual actions have a collective impact; together, as a nation, we can leave a legacy of a healthy South Africa and a healthy planet,” said Andrew Etzinger, Senior General Manager of Integrated Demand Management at Eskom.
This year, Earth Hour takes place from 20:30 to 21:30 on Saturday, 29 March.
