The portal shows hourly usage every day of the year along with temperature. Reviewing hourly electricity use can help you target areas to save in your home either by unplugging unnecessary appliances or shifting usage to off-peak hours.

You can also save energy all year long by signing up for a saveONenergy program. From furnace and air conditioning replacement programs to energy product coupons, taking part in one or more of the programs can help customers manage their electricity bill. Find out more at

Earth Hour is now in its tenth year and aims to connect people throughout the world to protect the planet. More than 7,000 communities globally will participate as they switch out the lights for one hour.

“Earth Hour is a meaningful way for people to come together and show their support for the well-being of our planet,” said Mayor Rick Goldring. “We all have a role to play when it comes to how energy is used and generated in the community.”

The city will be turning off some lighting at facilities that are not operational or required for safety and fire code reasons. It will also turn off refrigeration plants, exhaust fans/air handlers and heaters in viewing stands at the arenas.
