Officials ordered to save energy
PHUKET: The Governor of Phuket, Pongpayome Vasaputi, has ordered government officers to save energy, as a way to anticipate economic problems that may follow on from the terrorist outrages in the United States and the inevitable retaliation. Gov Pongpayome was relaying the new policy from Interior Minister Purachai Piemsombun. The aim is to save energy, especially electricity. The target of the policy is to reduce power bills in all government offices by 5%. Specifically, government officials were told, they should apply the following measures: – They should adjust the air-conditioning temperature in their offices to 26ºC – They should use elevators only if traveling more than three floors; otherwise, they should use the stairs. – Officers with cars should use 91-octane gasoline and should not drive faster than 90 kmh. “If everyone can do this, I believe we will save both energy and funds,” Gov Pongpayome added.
