Earth Hour 2017

This year’s Earth Hour 2017 will take place on Saturday the 25th March. Mayflower is pleased and proud to announce we will be assisting Southampton City Council in switching off up to 15,000 of its street lights across the city. Participating in this global event, Southampton City Council will help bring Earth Hour and its important environmental message to the residents of Southampton, hopefully inspiring them to take action and get engaged with this energy saving initiative.

Turning off these street lights for 1 hour from 8.30pm is made possible by the innovation supplied by the Mayflower Central Management System which Southampton Council has installed across the city. The Mayflower technology enables complete control and monitoring of street lighting by the client.

MD of Mayflower Patrick Mitchell commented “We are very pleased to be able to assist Southampton City Council with this important initiative. One of the many benefits of implementing the Mayflower CMS system is the ability to reduce energy and CO2 emissions, so we are delighted that it is being employed by the Council in this demonstration of solidarity with Earth Hour”.

Earth Hour, established in Sydney Australia in 2007, is the biggest environmental event in the world with over 170 countries taking part this year. 2017 marks the events tenth anniversary and Mayflower Smart Control is proud to be involved in this important movement which aims to highlight the issues of Climate Control.

Cllr Dave Shields, Cabinet Member for Health and Sustainable Living, said: “Earth Hour 2017 is a great way to raise awareness of the impact of climate change and as a city, we are proud to play an important role in tackling this global issue. The time to act is now, every flick of a switch is a reminder that what we do today will define what we have tomorrow.

“Everyone from individuals to community groups to schools or businesses can get behind WWF’s Earth Hour 2017 which reminds us that together we can create the sustainable future we desire, and our children deserve.”
