Switch off for Earth HourFriday, March 18, 2016

Council is encouraging residents to switch off their lights for Earth Hour between 8.30pm and 9.30pm this Saturday (March 19).

Earth Hour, which started in 2007, is a lights-off event to raise awareness about climate change.

Mackay Regional Council is participating in the international event once again, with the main administration building in Gordon Street powering down to show its support.

Some lighting, especially in building surrounds, is solar-powered, so these lights will remain on.

Show your support by switching off during Earth Hour.
