Embracing Earth Hour with Solar Power

Earth Hour stands as a powerful symbol of collective commitment to sustainability. As a renewable energy company, we’re not just advocates, we’re actively designing a brighter and greener future every day. What does sustainability and saving the planet mean to you? 

What is Earth Hour?

Earth Hour is a global movement initiated by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). It began in Sydney in 2007 as a lights-out event to raise awareness about climate change. Since then, it has grown into a global movement, with millions of people in over 190 countries participating each year. 

Every year WWF invites individuals and businesses worldwide to turn off non-essential lights for one hour as a symbolic gesture of unity against climate change. No matter where you are, what culture you are part of or what language you speak, Earth Hour unites us all in a common goal: to protect our planet. This year, join in to help WWF make this the #BiggestHourForEarth yet!

Why should I join in?

In 2024, the urgency of addressing climate change is bigger than ever. In 2023 we experienced devastating wildfires and extreme weather events that are warning us about the impacts of warming our planet. Earth Hour serves as a timely reminder that we must accelerate our efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and transition to renewable energy sources.

Reducing your carbon footprint

One of the primary objectives of Earth Hour is to raise awareness about the impact of energy consumption on our planet. Traditional energy sources, such as fossil fuels, contribute significantly to greenhouse gas emissions, intensifying climate change. Solar power, on the other hand, produces electricity without emitting harmful pollutants, making it a crucial player in the global effort to reduce our carbon footprint.

Solar Power and Earth Hour

At Energy Wired, we see Earth Hour not just as a moment of darkness, but as an opportunity to shine a light on the power of renewable energy. Our solar panels harness the sun's inexhaustible energy to generate clean electricity. As the world turns off its lights for one hour, our solar panels continue to silently and efficiently capture sunlight, converting it into a renewable source of power.

Empowering communities

Earth Hour is worldwide. You’ll be joining in with millions around the planet, sparking conversations, raising awareness and inspiring collective action. Similarly, solar energy is not just about powering individual homes; it's about empowering entire communities. By investing in solar solutions, individuals and businesses contribute to the development of a decentralised energy infrastructure, reducing dependence on centralised power grids. This decentralisation enhances energy resilience and empowers communities to take control of their energy destiny, fostering a more sustainable and resilient future.

What can I do to help?

Installing a solar system is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint to support Earth Hour. But if you’ve already done so, there are a number of ways you can help our planet during Earth Hour. Visit for more information on what you can do to help. Plan a picnic outside with your partner, raise awareness with your friends in your local area, plan a fundraising event with your business for WWF, stay up to date on social media to find events relating to Earth Hour near you. The list is endless, and everyone can do their part for the planet. Earth Hour is a reminder of how we can make a difference every day. The hour you dedicate this year can be made into many more over the year in our fight against climate change.
