City of Edmonton Buildings

Many City of Edmonton buildings that are able to turn off or dim their lights will be doing so for Earth Hour. Buildings include:

  • City Hall
  • Recreation Centres
    Kinsmen Sports Centre, City Arts Centres, City Arenas

Also, the decorative lights on the High Level Bridge, the Walterdale Bridge and Rossdale Power Plant will be turned off for the hour.

About Earth Hour

Earth Hour began in 2007 in Sydney, Australia. More than 2.2 million people across the world turned off their lights.

Edmonton has participated in Earth Hour since 2007. Earth Hour gives us all a chance to reflect on our energy consumption. It is important to make energy efficiency part of your everyday lifestyle and show you care about the planet.
