Sharaf DG Energy is supporting Earth Hour 2020 by encouraging people of the UAE to switch of their lights and instead light a candle.

Every year the WWF plans a one-hour stint where countries around the world switch off the lights, turn off the TV and save energy however possible, this year the day falls on 28 March, when the whole world will switch everything off at 8.30pm in each region’s local time.


With the recent COVID19 situation, Earth Hour is more relevant than ever, even as the world practices social distancing, people show solidarity by taking a step in the direction of saving the planet.
