Fortis BC has issued a challenge to local communities, and if Slocan Valley residents make a non monetary online pledge to shut off their lights for an hour on March 26, the Vallican Whole Community Centre can win up to $5,000 badly needed energy upgrades. 

Imagine, no lighting the community hall five hours before a community event (because there is a new energy efficient air source heat pump), and imagine fewer of our hard-fundraised dollars going out the windows and doors of The Vallican Whole in energy bills.

Imagine a planet with fewer fossil fuels spent on the care and feeding of a much loved community building in the heart of the Slocan Valley. 

All you have to do is make an online pledge to turn off your lights between 8:30  and 9:30 p.m. on March 26.

This a competition between communities, not between organizations in the Slocan Valley, so even if you don’t frequent The Vallican Whole, your community will benefit from your pledge.

Please make your pledge by 4 p.m., March 25 at and indicate you are from the Slocan Valley.
