It wasn’t quite as dark as last year as Toronto residents turned the lights off Saturday night to mark Earth Hour.
The drop in power in 2016 was 89 megawatts, and 103 megawatts in 2015.
But Toronto Hydro spokesperson Tori Glass says that doesn’t necessarily mean we’ve become less enthusiastic about the event which was started by the World Wildlife Fund in 2007 in Australia.
Glass says Toronto residents are using less and less power overall.
The WWF says Earth Hour “is a visual signal that ordinary people the world over want to change climate change.”
