Press Release >>
Prominent solar lighting technology company Green Frog Systems is one of many companies and businesses that will turn the lights out on Saturday March 28 as part of Earth Hour.
Green Frog Systems is turning the lights off at their company headquarters in South Australia and USA head offices on Saturday March 28 2020 as part of Earth Hour, the global conservation movement. All mains powered lights at the Green Frog Systems Australia head office at 51 Langford Street will be switched off for one hour between 8:30pm and 9:30pm as part of one of the largest global grassroots movements for the environment.
The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) began Earth Hour in Sydney, 2007 and each year thousands of businesses and individuals show their commitment to the environment by turning off their lights.
WWF encourages Australians to participate in Earth Hour 2020 by switching off their lights for one hour to show their support for Australia to get back on track to meeting its international climate commitments.
Green Frog Systems is actively helping Local Government and businesses of all sizes to reduce their emissions by designing and developing a range of highly energy efficient, solar lighting systems capable of replacing utility grade street lighting, without an electricity grid connection and zero carbon emissions once installed.
The company also designs solar energy storage systems for Local Government on sporting facilities, public spaces and community assets. These systems provide power to multiple devices including irrigation controllers, communication towers and security cameras, further helping Local Government reduce its carbon footprint without obstructing the development of community assets.
Studies have drawn a noticeable relationship between neighborhoods that encourage after hours activities in public spaces by improving accessibility to them, with generally happier people, a greater sense of community inclusion and overall healthier residents.
Turning the lights off for Earth Hour 2020 is a symbolic gesture of solidarity in the global effort to reduce harmful carbon emissions and we encourage everyone to make this statement with us and participate wherever they can.
