Help boost awareness of energy conservation as part of our Turn It Off! BC program.

Turn It Off! BC is a new partnership initiative with BC Hydro. Together, we're asking British Columbians to join global leaders like Paris and Sydney in using designated "lights out" times as a way of bringing attention to energy use. Let's show the world that British Columbians stand behind our commitment to sustainability -- by turning off our lights and other electrical devices on the evening of Wednesday, May 16th.

These municipalities are committed to participating in Turn It Off! BC:

* Bowen Island
* The Town of Gibsons
* City of Kamloops
* City of Langley
* City of North Vancouver
* City of Port Coquitlam
* City of Richmond
* District of Sechelt
* City of Surrey
* City of Vernon
* City of Victoria
* District of West Vancouver
* City of White Rock

Follow this event in your community newspaper, or by going to the 30 Days of Sustainability website. And if you're in one of our ten communities, we hope you'll turn off your lights to turn on awareness of energy conservation as a pillar of sustainability.
