True, it is worth noting that the implementation of the idea of u200bu200bthe operator of a single British power system was prompted not by noble spiritual impulses, but by the risk of failures due to high load. About the “energy bonus program” says the newspaper The Sun.
The power saving mode will be announced in the kingdom on January 23 from 20:00 to 23:00 Moscow time. During this period, all Albion residents who sacrifice their own comfort and refuse to use washing machines, game consoles and other household appliances will be able to replenish the piggy bank and at the same time receive a more pleasant electricity bill. The reward for “suffering” will be up to £6 ($7.4) for every kilowatt-hour saved.
National Grid bitterly admits that the cold weather that has gripped Albion has shaken the company’s operations and caused increased loads on the power grid. However, concerned Britons were quick to ensure that the energy operator’s goodwill gesture was not motivated by the threat of a blackout on the islands. On the contrary, the organizers decided to carry out the action as a “precautionary measure”. In addition, a National Grid spokesperson said that “coal power units have been instructed to stand ready to increase electricity supply if necessary.”
Recall that previously the operator warned the nation about possible power cuts of up to three hours before the imminent winter and the energy crisis in the kingdom. It was reported that blackouts could catch up with the British in the event of a shortage of blue fuel supplies.
