Village residents reduced their electricity use by 4.5 percent between 8:30 and 9:30 Saturday night, followed by Coldstream at 3.8 percent and Vernon and Lake Country both at 3.4.
Enderby residents were down 2.6 percent.
Revelstoke led the 91 communities that took part with a 12 percent reduction, while BC as a whole cut its power use over the one hour by 1.67 percent, just slightly above last year's 1.8 percent.
That's the equivalent of turning off about 9 million 12.5 watt L-E-D light bulbs.
