FortisAlberta is offering Earth Hour grants to enable municipalities to create or enhance energy efficiencies in their communities. First, second and third place winners will be awarded with $5,000, $2,500 and $1,500 grants respectively.
Earth Hour is a global event that takes place in March every year with the goal of encouraging people and businesses to turn off unnecessary lights, appliances and electronic devices to help conserve power and raise awareness around environmental issues.
This year, Earth Hour will take place on Saturday, March 25, 2017 from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. Even though it’s just one hour, it’s an opportunity to be mindful of the power you use, and look for ways to reduce your energy consumption.
The deadline to apply is March 13, 2017. Please note only municipalities who have not won an Earth Hour grant within the last three years and have a Franchise Agreement with FortisAlberta are able to participate in this Earth Hour Challenge.
Residents are encouraged to follow us on our social media channels using #FortisABEarthHour to participate in our Earth Hour Contest for chances to win great energy efficiency prizes! To qualify, residents must be FortisAlberta customers.
