Dear Minister,

Greenrock is gearing up for this year’s Earth Hour, with the event set to include the 5K Glow Fun Walk & Run, live entertainment, vendors, fun activities, speeches and more.

“Earth Hour began in 2007, in Sydney, Australia, and has since grown to engage more than 172 countries around the world. In Bermuda, Greenrock organised the first local celebration of Earth Hour in 2008, and it has been an annual fixture on our calendar since,” a spokesperson said.

Christmas Balls

This is a lovely time year in our island home. There are few places on earth that sparkle and shine the way Bermuda does at Christmas; our balmy ocean breezes and lush foliage make the lights that decorate our homes and businesses work together to create a special kind of magic.

This is a time of celebration, of letting our family and friends know how much they mean to us, and of reflection on the year about to end and the new one that's just days away.

A new web forum called the Bermuda Solar User Group launched this week. The aim of this forum is to create a community resource that provides answers to common questions such as how to obtain planning permission for solar systems, and how to get them interconnected to BELCO. The web forum is powered by Google Groups.
