Madrid won’t be turning off lights to save energy

The regional officer of Spain’s capital, Madrid has stated that the city won’t be switching off the lights to preserve energy ahead of the “tough” winter for countries all across the world.

Her comments lead the statement of emergency actions from Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez.

The plan has the limitation of air conditioning to temps of 27°C, the re-establishment of ‘work from home’ proceedings for officials working in public buildings and ditching ties.

In the previous few weeks, EU countries stated that energy-saving plans to cut the needs for gas and reduce the risk of blackouts this winter.

Isabel Díaz Ayuso said these measures generate insecurity and “scare away tourism and consumption”.

“It (Spain’s plan) causes darkness, poverty, sadness while the government covers up the question: what savings are you going to apply to yourself.” Ms Ayuso commented.

A few days ago, cities in Germany, including Berlin revealed measures to support the country’s energy supplies amid fears of winter deficit.

Historic structures in the German capital will not be lit at night any longer.
