BELCO President, Dennis Pimentel, said: “We’re excited to once again sponsor and play an important role in supporting Greenrock’s annual Earth Hour event.

BELCO staff will be at the Expo to provide information and tips on energy efficient technologies and how residents can reduce their energy usage.”
