NEW YORK -- For the second consecutive year, all 30 NHL facilities have pledged their commitment to World Wildlife Fund's (WWF) Earth Hour, the world's largest annual public action for the environment.
On Saturday, March 23, all NHL arenas will join hundreds of millions of homes and businesses worldwide, switching-off non-essential lighting for one hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m., local time. Eighteen of the League's 30 Clubs will be in action that Saturday.
While energy builds on the ice with Playoff positions at stake, all facilities will scale back the electricity used in their operations during the globally recognized hour.
The goal of Earth Hour is to show the world that even taking the seemingly smallest measures to conserve energy is a big step in the right direction for communities, businesses and governments across the globe.
