The administration in Da Nang on Tuesday demanded that all outdoor advertising and decorative lights in the city be turned off after 8:00 pm to save electricity amid the power shortage risk.
The municipal People’s Committee issued a document on the enhancement of the power saving drive during the dry season and the entire year.
Organizations and individuals managing and operating public lighting systems and outdoor decorative and advertising lights were required to reduce at least 30 percent of the consumed electricity volume.
The city asked all agencies and units to employ power saving solutions, such as switching off electrical devices before leaving and cutting power sources when not using electrical devices, using air conditioners when necessary and setting them at 26 degrees Celsius or above, and minimizing the use of incandescent bulbs.
Leaders of agencies and units will take responsibility for carrying out power saving plans at their headquarters to cut their monthly power consumption by 10 percent.
Schools, hospitals, infirmaries, medical stations, and nursing homes will aim to save five percent of the current consumed electricity.
Restaurants, hotels, service and trade establishments, office buildings, and apartments will have to halve outdoor decorative and advertising lights after 8:00 pm every day.
Nine cities and provinces in the central and Central Highlands regions, including Quang Binh, Quang Tri, Thua Thien-Hue, Da Nang, Quang Nam, Khanh Hoa, Dak Lak, Dak Nong, and Quang Ngai, have issued directives to encourage power saving as of Tuesday, according to the Central Power Corporation.
Leaders of the People’s Committees of these localities have required deploying urgent solutions to save electricity, contributing to ensuring an adequate power supply in their precincts.
