Ranong takes steps to save energy
With Myanmar scheduled to suspend gas supplies to Thai power-generating facilities in order to conduct annual maintenance from April 5-14, Ranong Governor Cherdsak Jampathes has ordered officials in five districts to save energy by keeping air-conditioners at 25-26 degrees Celsius and using elevators on a rotating basis so that not all are in use at the same time. He also suggested government vehicles use gasohol along with NGV (natural gas for vehicles).
Meanwhile, to show support for the Thai government's energy-saving campaign, 60 communities of Myanmar nationals in Ranong turned off their lights between 1pm and 2pm yesterday. They also vowed to help save energy in many ways, including turning off unnecessary lighting and unplugging electrical appliances after use.
