NAIT powers off for Earth Hour on March 24
NAIT will celebrate Earth Hour by turning off non-essential lights and ventilation and reducing boiler settings at Main Campus from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. on March 24.
As a global initiative of the World Wildlife Fund, Earth Hour aims to raise awareness for energy conservation and climate change by encouraging participants to reduce power consumption.
Through Earth Hour, it is estimated that NAIT will reduce its power usage by more than 1,000 kilowatt hours. This is roughly equivalent to cutting 1 tonne of greenhouse gas emissions, the amount generated by an average Canadian household over 2 weeks.
During Earth Hour, student lounges and common areas in CAT, HP and Y Building will have dimmed lighting. Lights in hallways and corridors will be switched off. Ventilation fans will be switched off and boilers will run at reduced capacity.
