Screen Shot 2017-01-17 at 7.25.08 PMThe Monaco Government is asking residents to reduce power use between 6 pm and 8 pm again Wednesday as the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region is experiencing temperatures below normal.

The French electrical grid — on which Monaco depends for its electrical supply — has been facing “very strong” consumption. In with this exceptional situation, the Government of Monaco and SMEG calls on “all consumers in Monaco to reduce their electricity consumption during peak evening hours in order to avoid power cuts in the region,” the Government said on Tuesday afternoon.

Users are asked to turn off lights in unoccupied rooms, run central heating at no more than 19°C, switch off electrical appliances running on standby, and use washing machines and dishwashers later in the evening.
