The objective of the Brighter Nights™ program, formally known as Light the Night, is to brighten neighbourhoods and help make them safer by installing compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) and encouraging residents to leave them on overnight. This community outreach program aligns safety with energy efficiency by focusing on how valuable lighting can be to our communities.
Residents are encouraged to leave their new energy-efficient porch lights on between 9 p.m. and 7 a.m. to increase safety in their community. CFL bulbs use 75 per cent less electricity* than standard incandescent bulbs and leaving them on at night, during off-peak hours, costs about a penny!
Since 2012, we have visited over 30 neighbourhoods for Brighter Nights events and replaced over 6,000 bulbs!
