Polish officials forced to save electricity

Polish officials forced to save electricity

Warsaw, Dec 1 (Prensa Latina) The Polish authorities announced new rules for saving electricity in their country, according to which these will also be applied in the workplaces of civil servants, the newspaper Rzeczpospolita highlighted.

The new rules oblige state employees to work with natural light, reduced temperature in offices, switch off all electrical appliances after work and the usage of black and white printing.

In this context, the lighting of the facade of the Prime Minister’s Office was also switched off and the work of the Krakow administration was reduced.

In this sense, the Ministry of Climate and Environment stressed that the agency has a long history of energy conservation policies, but acknowledged that in this occasion it had to implement additional restrictions.

Among those mentioned measures, are the use of table lamps by employees instead of overhead lamps and limiting temperature heating in work spaces, to 19 degrees Celsius.

Earlier it was reported that Poles started to buy lignite for heating houses, although experts point out that most stoves in Poland are not suitable for this mineral coal which expels large amount of pollutants into the atmosphere.

According to their forecasts, Poles can expect broken stoves and illnesses from polluted air.

The problems with hydrocarbons in Poland became more acute after the outbreak of the war in Ukraine. jrr/jf/amp.
