Last Day to Sign up for the Power Pledge!

August 10, 2010


Tomorrow is the end of the Ontario Community Conservation Challenge’s Power Pledge. It is the final day to prove to cities across the province that Guelph is at the forefront when it comes to reducing energy and greenhouse gases.

For one day, turn off all non-essential power, such as TVs and stereos when they’re not in use, and head outside to enjoy the beautiful August weather.

If you haven’t already signed up for the Power Pledge, it offers quick, easy solutions to save money and reduce power consumption and green house gas emissions. The suggested savings are simple. We need to: buy energy saving lighting, fixtures or appliances; become laundry smart; receive home energy audits; and reduce “phantom power” by using power bars that automatically shut off power to items such as computers when they are not in use. These are all simple solutions that can make a difference in our lives and pocketbooks.

For further information on the Pledge, check out:;

Let’s join together and win the pledge tomorrow!
