Earth Hour local results

Earth hourCongratulations on your participation

More than half of New Zealand showed their commitment to the future of the planet by taking part in WWF’s Earth Hour™ 2009 according to recent survey results. The survey, by Colmar Brunton, found that 51% of New Zealanders aged over 18 took part in the global WWF initiative by turning off lights and/or non-essential appliances for one hour on Saturday 28 March. 

In Wanaka, Aurora Energy confirmed to Sustainable Wanaka that a 10% reduction in energy was made for the hour. This was helped by 70% of businesses taking part with most bars doing something to reduce their energy during the evening.

Well done everyone!
