Hung Yen (VNA) – The northern province of Hung Yen has saved over 50 million kWh of electricity, equivalent to nearly 78 billion VND (3.43 million USD) so far this year, thanks to local residents’ response to an energy saving movement launched in the locality.

Carried out in 21 communes and towns in An Thi district, the programme, within only three months, helped save over 1.6 million kWh of power, equivalent to 2.7 billion VND (nearly 119,000 USD).

To reap the results, the Hung Yen Electricity Company has run communication campaigns to raise public awareness of the significance of economical and efficient electricity use.

Locals were provided with knowledge of power saving and instructed to use energy-saving equipment. They were also recommended to make good practice in using electricity.

The movement contributed to reducing energy consumption and discharge of exhaust smoke causing environmental pollution, towards realising the National Target Programme on Energy Conservation and Efficient Use.-VNA
