The government adopted measures to save electricity by up to 15 percent – recommendations are provided for households and companies, and specific obligations for state institutions that must be respected, otherwise sanctions will follow.
As the Macedonian Minister of Economy KreshnikBekteshi announced today, the measures will come into force on September 1 of this year, and will be valid until March 31, 2023.
“One of the most difficult winters in terms of energy is ahead of us. For uninterrupted electricity supply, rational consumption and lower bills, we have prepared a plan and recommendations for saving electricity. The measures are divided into several categories, depending on whether they are for households, companies or state-owned facilities, institutions and enterprises. The goal is to reduce consumption by 15 percent compared to the same month last year. If this goal is not achieved, in accordance with the code of ethics and all decrees, certain sanctions will follow for all heads of institutions,” Bekteshi noted.
