25 March 2017, Cape Town: Eskom has called on South Africans to switch off their lights for Earth Hour on 25 March 2017, Saturday night between 8:30pm and 9:30pm.
“Eskom calls on South Africans to switch off for Earth Hour and will be celebrating this hour by using its power to showcase our contribution to South Africa’s journey in meeting sustainable development goals,” the power utility said in a statement.
In 2017, it will involve the switching off of electric lights for an hour in 7,000 cities across 172 countries, at 8:30pm local time, with the aim of highlighting the need to act on climate change, while saving a few megawatts of power in the process.
