Earth Hour reminds us to consciously honour our world. There are so many eco-friendly things to do in the dark. Stock up on Consol Solar Jars and give our planet a brighter future by making every hour, Earth Hour. 
 
1. Gather friends and family for a solar-lit dinner at home. 
2. Go star-gazing with a lantern in-hand on a path lit by solar light.
3. If you're a city dweller, from a building with a view, check out what's switched off and what's left on. 
4. Create fun shadow art illusions on walls in the glow of solar light.
5. Get musical with an unplugged jam session or a djembe circle. 
6. For a quieter eve, be mindful with a solar-lit meditation of gratitude to our planet for the life it offers us.  
7. Sit on a bench and simply appreciate the sounds of nightlife from near and afar. 
8. Read a favorite bedtime story in the coziness of solar light. 
9. Inspire discussion on using alternative energies to lessen the possibility of power cuts and rolling blackouts. 
10. Snap flash-free photographs by solar light and post them to social media using #earthhour.

Green belt promenades bordered with trees and bathed in sunlight are more appealing than any pylon park with steel lattice towers and power lines.
 
South Africa anticipates an energy crisis as Eskom confirms that the national grid faces strain. Dwindling abilities to cope with electricity demands, coupled with obstacles in the construction of the new Medupi Power Station, threaten load shedding and rolling blackouts. 
 
The publication of the Electricity Governance Initiative - Smart Electricity Planning speaks of the vital need for adopting alternative energy resources, such as solar, if our country is to be resilient in the face of energy depletion. South Africans must collectively commit to harness efficient energy consumption.
 
Africa is inundated with a radiant, natural and free power resource – sunshine. With clean solar energy, there's the option of living off the grid. By embracing solar technology, rural communities needn't live without electricity. City dwellers will reduce their household energy consumption and electricity bills may not soar as high as forecasters predict.
 
Solar energy inspires innovation, is inexhaustible and achievable. With increased demands for solar products, such as our Consol Solar Jar, costs will lower resulting in an even more affordable retail price. Suntoy reaffirms our commitment to actively participating in the realisation of a 'smart' future. We all benefit from a greener grid. Go solar.
